Fans of the Netflix TV series will know actress Elizabeth Norment as Nancy Kaufberger, secretary to Kevin Spacey's character Frank Underwood. Sadly, Norment passed away after battling cancer on October 13th, which we know was a couple of weeks ago now, but it seems Spacey and those who work on House of Cards are only just hearing the news, or only publicly reacting to it anyways. 

Spacey paid tribute on Twitter;

While the show's writer Beau Willimon said: "Everyone at House of Cards is deeply saddened by Elizabeth's passing. She was a talented actress, a warm soul and a good friend to us all."

You may also recognise Norment from her previous TV roles on Law & Order, St Elsewhere, Party of Five, ER and Mad About You.

While on the big screen, she starred in The Woman in Red, Runaway and Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.
