Amaury Nolasco's Sister Dies at 33


Amaury Nolasco's 33-year-old sister Deborah died suddenly of an apparent heart attack yesterday. Nolasco left the Los Angeles set of his new TV show Chase and jumped on a plane home to Puerto Rico to be with his family.

Deborah suffered from heart problems since since she was a child, but her death was sudden and unexpected. Upon arrival, Amaury released a statement to local newspaper El Nuevo Dia saying:

"These displays of affection mean a lot to our family and are a reminder of the heart that my people have. In this time of grief we ask for a little privacy and space to digest this news, our sister was our sun and we are broken by her departure."

The funeral will be private. Nolasco can be seen in theaters this fall in Hunter S. Thompson's The Rum Diary costarring Johnny Depp.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
