LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- U.S. actress and producer Lisa Blount has been found dead in her Little Rock, Ark., home, People.com said Thursday. She was 53.

Blount's acting credits include "An Officer and a Gentleman," "Great Balls of Fire" and "Chrystal." She also co-produced the live-action short film "The Accountant," which won an Oscar in 2001.

Blount's body was discovered Wednesday by her mother.

There were no signs of foul play and the cause of Blount's death Monday has not been determined yet, Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Blount's husband, actor-director Ray McKinnon, has been out of town this week, the newspaper said.

McKinnon was a cast member of TV's "Deadwood" and was seen recently in the film "The Blind Side."
