The transgender actress who passed away 4 months ago was awarded with SAG only after her death. Arquette received an award as one of the actors lost in the past twelve months at the awards which took place this week.The actor – best known for roles in Last Exit To Brooklyn, Pulp Fiction and The Wedding Singer – passed away “surrounded by love” last year, as her family “held her and sang her David Bowie’s Starman”. Alexis’ siblings (there are 4 of them and they are all famous actors or entertainers ) praised their sister for being so incredibly talented in almost all spheres of creativity. They also admired her courage to live a life of a trans woman and to refuse to play the stereotypical trans roles, however harmful it might be for her acting career. She fought for trans people to be accepted despite the stereotypes. She wanted to be the first in everything, so she passed away the first, when the people who loved her were not ready to let her go
