    Default Model Stefanie Sherk, wife of actor Demian Bichir, dead at 37

    Stefanie Sherk, the model wife of actor Demian Bichir, has died at the age of 37.

    The Oscar nominee confirmed her death Wednesday on Instagram with a heartfelt message, writing that she died “peacefully” on April 20.

    “It has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives and we don’t know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain,” Bichir, 55, wrote beneath a photo of the model. “It is our sincerest hope that our beautiful Stefanie, my angel and love of my life, will rest in eternal peace.”

    The Canadian model’s cause of death wasn’t revealed.

    Sherk and Bichir, who started dating in 2010, shared a daughter named Gala.

    On top of her modeling career, Sherk appeared in her Mexican husband’s film “Un Cuento de Circo & A Love Song,” and recently filmed the horror flick “Grudge.”

    “Stefanie’s beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed,” Bichir wrote. “We will hold Stefanie in our hearts forever.”

    I was looking up information on her, and she had stopped posting on her Twitter account sometime last year around June or July. She and Demian (who is Mexican) were both dedicated to the cause of immigrant children who were stuck in detention centers because of the current Admin policy.

    The fact that she died peacefully at home sounds like she was in some kind of hospice situation and was suffering from a terminal illness.

    I've only seen a couple of things Demian's been in "Hateful 8" (he was hilarious) and "Alien Covenant". Very versatile actor.

    I have never heard of someone committing suicide by weighing themselves down in a swimming pool before. And it certainly doesn't sound peaceful.

    I've read of people filling their pockets with rocks and drowning themselves. You would think the survival instinct would kick in and the person would stop at the last minute, but apparently many don't. Anyway, poor lady, too young and an awful way to go.

    Oscar nominee mourns death of model wife, 37: 'The saddest and toughest time of our lives'

    Demian Bichir, who received a Best Actor nomination for 2011’s A Better Life, shared the news Wednesday that his wife, Canadian model and actress Stefanie Sherk, has died.

    Bichir, 55, wrote that it was with “inconceivable pain” that he made the announcement that his “beloved and loving wife passed away peacefully” on Saturday. In his Instagram post, he called 37-year-old Sherk, whom he married in 2011, a “beautiful, angelical and talented presence” that will be “immensely missed.”

    He did not specify the cause of death, but The Blast reports it’s being investigated as a possible suicide. Law enforcement sources told the website that Bichir found Sherk at the bottom of the pool at their Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on April 12 when he returned from the grocery store. She apparently weighed herself down to keep her body at the bottom of the pool, an investigator said.

    Sherk was hospitalized for eight days before passing away.


    In his post, Bichir asked for “peace and privacy in these incredibly difficult times.” He called it the “saddest and toughest time of our lives.”

    The actor’s friends posted messages of support, including actress Diane Kruger, who wrote, “Oh Demian, I’m so sorry I had no idea. I’m sending you so much love in this difficult time.”

    Bichir’s first wife, Mexican actress and singer Lisset, also commented. Loosely translated it said that she was sending him love from afar: “I love you with my soul. I'm so sorry.”

    Bichir, who was in the hit Showtime series Weeds alongside Mary-Louise Parker, and Sherk started dating in 2010. A Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, native, she appeared in his 2016 directorial debut Un cuento de circo & a Love Song as well as the films Star Power, Valentine's Day and Loco Love. She also appeared in various TV shows including CSI: Cyber, #Hashtag: The Series and Telenovela.

    The pair didn’t share any children, but he has a daughter, Gala, who was born in 2011.

    Stefanie and Demian began dating in 2011 and do not have any children. Bichir has a daughter, Gala, born in 2011, from a previous relationship.
    It is unclear when the pair tied the knot, but when Demian was quizzed on wanting to marry Stefanie in 2014, he replied: 'It’s really hard to actually know if something is forever. I never plan that. You love who you love every day and you expect that to last forever.
    'But you also have to be truthful when things are not right. And that’s when instead of having 14 kids everywhere and 18 marriages you need to be smart and truthful and fair to the people you love. If you’re lucky enough to go to the next level, then that’s beautiful too.'
    Speaking directly about Stefanie to the Miami Herald, he gushed: 'This is the best girl I’ve ever met. She’s not only a fantastic artist - I respect that a lot - but she’s a beautiful, beautiful human being and so smart. And all that together makes her beautiful. She’s a beautiful, amazing human being.'

    Virginia Woolf killed herself in a similar manner, but in a river instead of a pool

    Yeah, I think it's impossible to die "peacefully" from drowning, suicide or not. How sad.

    That's terrible! I can't imagine wanting to go like that. But since they stated she died in the hospital, the "died peacefully" makes a bit more sense.
