Isabel Torres, known for her role on HBO Max’s Veneno, has died. She was 52.
Torres’ family confirmed the news of her death on Instagram Friday. The statement was written in Spanish.
“Today, February 11, 2022, we say goodbye to Isabel,” the family said. “Although her family and friends feel her loss deeply, we know that wherever she goes she will have fun as only she knows how. Thank you for all the messages of affection and concern. She has left feeling very loved and protected.”
Torres had been battling lung cancer since 2018. Ahead of her death, she told fans in November 2021 that she only had two months to live in an emotional video on Instagram.
“They give me two months to live,” the actress said in Spanish at the time, according to Out. “Let’s see if I get over it, and if not, what are we going to do? Life is like that.”
Torres noted in the caption that this marked her “last video,” though she continued to post photos on Instagram thereafter. Her final post on Instagram came in December and featured photos of her all dolled up in Charlotte Tilbury makeup, promoting a contest where fans can win the collection.
