The Greek actress starred in Yorgos Lanthimos’ Oscar-nominated film

Mary Tsoni, famed Greek actress, has died at age 30, according to the Greek Reporter.

Tsoni was best known for her performance in Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Dogtooth,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film in 2011.

In the film, she plays one of two women whose parents have kept them confined in their house for their entire lives, promising them they will be ready to leave the house once they lose a dogtooth.

Tsoni received the Best Actress Award at the Sarajevo Film Festival for her performance as the unnamed daughter.

Tsoni’s friend and fellow actress, Lewsha Camille Simboura said she found Tsoni dead on Tuesday and wrote a social media post in her memory.

“Sorry I didn’t come sooner. Maybe we could have saved you,” Simboura wrote. “I felt guilty, as I watched James perform CPR. I should have tried to help you with your sickness.”

Tsoni’s cause of death is not yet known.
