Actress Anne Heche was "peacefully taken off life support" Sunday after she reportedly matched with an organ recipient, her manager told CBSLA.
Heche, 53, wasby her family on Thursday from her injuries after she crashed into a Mar Vista home on Aug. 5.
In the state of California, when a person is declared brain dead it is legally dead.
After Heche, a mother of two sons, is taken off life support surgeons will remove her organs for patients in need of an organ. It's unclear what organs will be given to recipients.
Heche rose to fame on the soap opera "Another World," where she played the dual role of twins Vicky Hudson and Marley Love from 1987 to 1991 and won a Daytime Emmy Award for her performance.
She also had roles in films including "Donnie Brasco," "Six Days, Seven Nights," "Wag the Dog," "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and director Gus Van Sant's remake of "Psycho."
Her loved ones are reportedly planning on saying their final goodbyes to the actress.
