Actress Carol Sutton Dies of Coronavirus Complications

Veteran actress Carol Sutton, whose most recent roles included appearances on the hit TV series “Queen Sugar,” has died from complications of COVID-19. She was 76.

Sutton, who played the role of Aunt Martha on the OWN series, died Thursday night after being hospitalized in her hometown New Orleans, a local ABC News affiliate reported.

“Among actors in New Orleans, there was Carol Sutton — and there was everybody else,” David Cuthbert, a retired Times-Picayune critic, said in a statement. “She opened her mouth, and out came truth. Wherever she was on stage, that was center stage.”

Sutton, whose extensive credits include roles in films and television shows such as “Steel Magnolias” “Monster’s Ball” and “Treme,” recently starred in the HBO series “Lovecraft Country.”

“It was our honor to welcome this veteran actress of stage + screen to our show,” “Queen Sugar” creator and director Ava DuVernay tweeted. “May she rise and rest in peace and power.”
