Lisa Blount (Lisa Suzanne Blount)

Lisa Blount

Lisa Blount was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Glen Roscoe Blount and Margaret Louise Martin, and raised in Jacksonville, Arkansas. After graduating from Jacksonville High School and studying theatre at Valdosta State University in Georgia, she landed several small television roles. She played Lynette Pomeroy in An Officer and a Gentleman. Another memorable role was that of Jim Profit’s outrageous stepmother Bobbi Stakowski in the short-lived television series Profit. She starred in Prince of Darkness as the love interest to Jameson Parker, who would play a more important role in the story as it progressed. She appeared in season two (1986) of Moonlighting in the episode, “Sleep Talkin’ Guy”. Blount later became a producer and, along with her husband Ray McKinnon, won the Academy Award for best live action short film for the 2001 film, The Accountant. That film also credits her as wardrobe mistress. Lisa Blount produced and acted in Chrystal, which starred Billy Bob Thornton.

Lisa Blount was found dead in her Little Rock, Arkansas, home by her mother on October 27, 2010. The coroner told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Blount appeared to have died two days earlier. No foul play was suspected, according to the Pulaski County Coroner. Although the coroner did not release an official cause of death, Blount’s mother told RadarOnline.com her daughter had suffered from idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), in which low levels of platelets keep blood from clotting and lead to bleeding and bruising. “I think that might have been part of the problem when she passed away because when I found her she had a purple look on her neck that looked like blood on the surface”.
