Capcom said of the story, “Ethan’s world suddenly comes crashing down once again when Chris Redfield, an unexpected yet familiar face makes an appearance, setting off a chain of events that sees a distraught Ethan seeking answers to Chris’ shocking actions, and ultimately finding him in a mysterious village.”
Maus, who was known not only for her voice work, also appeared in Charm City Kings, which was released on October 8, 2020, by HBO Max, and co-wrote the 2008 film My Effortless Brilliance, an independent dark comedy directed by Lynn Shelton. The actress is set to appear in the forthcoming films Casting Call and My Fiona, as well as Adaptive Studio’s new sci-fi comedy series Stellar People.
The actress, who was also an acting and audition coach at John Rosenfeld Studios in West Hollywood, is survived by her fiancé, Dusty Warren, who wrote on Facebook, “It is with a shattered-yet grateful-heart that I inform you that Jeanette Maus passed away late last night due to complications of cancer. I’m really sad, but I’m super proud of her. She fought so hard, with tremendous grace and optimism, inspiring myself and I’m sure many of you.”
