Hulu said in a statement, "We are shocked and deeply saddened by this terrible news. Glenne was a tremendous talent, and an even more extraordinary person.

I'm gonna miss her presence, her smile, and the way she made me feel like her son before, between, and after they called action and cut."

I only knew the talented, empathetic, loving, beautiful Glenne Headly for a short time. She was powerful and strong and hilarious.

Steve Martin, her co-star in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" (1988) and "Sgt. Bilko" (1996), also took to Twitter to mourn her death. "Our household mourns the sudden loss of beloved friend, actress, and comic genius, Glenne Headly," he wrote.

Richard Dreyfuss, who played her husband in 1995's "Mr. Holland's Opus", told The Hollywood Reporter he was shocked and saddened to hear the news. "To say that she was professional is not enough," he said, "She was just perfect."

Dreyfuss went on remembering Headly, "She was a person who did not insist that her personality take over the character. Glenne Headly was this fantastically talented actress, who buried her personality beneath the character she was playing. And it is very rare that you run into that. And at the same time, she was sweet and funny and happy on the set."
