The actress’ rep continued, while noting how “Galyn had been very private about her battle with cancer the last 9 months. But remained positive and continued to enjoy life in Hawaii. She loved the ocean and was an amazing dancer as well as a talented actress.”

“Her heart was of silver and gold and her energy and presence brightened any room she entered,” Legette’s statement went on.

She then talked about how her friend was “a beautiful soul who loved life, art, dance and was a phenomenal Woman. She was not only a client but a good friend who will be missed beyond measure.”

Gorg is probably best known for her role as Helena in the hit 90’s series, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” starring Will Smith and her part in the action packed sci-fi film “Robocop 2.”
