Yvette Mimieux was found dead Tuesday morning, a rep for her family confirmed. She had just turned 80 on January 8, and she passed away in her sleep of natural causes.

Mimieux was a prolific actress best remembered for starring opposite Rod Taylor in the 1960 George Pal-directed film version of the H.G. Wells novel "The Time Machine" at MGM, where she was soon put under a long-term contract. Another big hit came months after in "Where the Boys Are." Among her other credits around that time were "Platinum High School," "Mr. Lucky," "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" and "Light in the Piazza."

The latter garnered her strong reviews for playing a mentally disabled girl, and at the time she said: "I supposed I have a soulful quality. I was often cast as a wounded person, the ‘sensitive’ role." She played Dean Martin’s child bride in the 1963 pic "Toys in the Attic" and teamed with director Serge Bourguignon in the films "The Reward" and "The Picasso Summer."
