Rest in Peace: Elizabeth Pena


Some really shocking and sad news arrived today as actress Elizabeth Pena has passed away at age 55 due to natural causes. Pena has appeared on many TV shows and in many films over the years, but horror fans will forever love her for her role of Jezzie in the modern classic Jacob’s Ladder.

Pena also appeared in TV’s “Outer Limits” revival, “The Ghost Whisperer,” Dragon Wars: D-War, Lone Star, and the TV movie “It Came From Outer Space II.” She also did a ton of voice work, including her role as Mirage in The Incredibles as well as in the video games Prototype, Disney Infinity, and Kinect Fun Labs.

Her career was all too short, and we are truly saddened by her loss. At this time we here at Dread Central would like to take a moment to extend our deepest condolences to Elizabeth’s friends, family, and colleagues.

You will be so very missed, my dear. Rest easy.

Elizabeth Pena
