Actress-director Denise Dowse, whose prolific career included roles in "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Insecure" and "Ray," has died at age 64, her family confirmed to CNN on Sunday.

"It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce her passing," the actress's sister, Tracey Dowse, said in a statement.

She also announced her sister's death on the actress's Instagram account, remembering her as an advocate for African-American theater who was also dedicated to sharing the profession with children.

Dowse acted and directed for the Negro Ensemble Company and directed works for the Amazing Grace Conservatory, an inner-city youth theater training program.

Dowse was well known for her role as Mrs. Yvonne Teasley on the hit series "Beverly Hills, 90210" and recently appeared on the HBO comedy series "Insecure" as Molly Carter's (Yvonne Orji) therapist.

In addition to playing roles in dozens of films and television series, Dowse has also directed films, including "Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story," which premiered at the Pan-African Film Festival in April.

"I am so proud to have been his sister," Tracey Dowse told CNN.

"She lit up the stage and the screen. She knew how to dance in life and see the joy. Something we can all learn from."

Dowse's representative, Sandra Siegal of Siegal Company, remembered her client and friend in a statement Sunday.


"I am heartbroken by the loss of our brilliantly talented, beautiful, elegant, eloquent and caring Denise, whom I have had the joy and blessing of managing and collaborating on her career for over 25 years, as well as a personal relationship of friendship. I am lost, but I have gained so much by knowing her. Denise's legacy and memory will live on forever because she has truly touched so many," Siegal said.

Throughout his decades-long career, Dowse appeared on several television series, including "Charmed," "Girlfriends," "The West Wing," and "Law and Order."

She also had roles in movies like "Pleasantville" and "Requiem for a Dream," according to her IMDB profile.
