Louise Fletcher, who gave one of film’s most memorable performances in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, had died in France.

Louise Fletcher, who won an Oscar for playing the sadistic Nurse Mildred Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, has died at 88.

Deadline reported that her family made the announcement through agent David Shaul but that no cause of death was given.

Fletcher passed away at the home she built in Montdurausse, France, with Shaul saying she told her family just before she died, “I can’t believe I created something so meaningful to my well-being.”

She started her acting career in TV shows like Maverick, The Untouchables and 77 Sunset Strip before going on to star in films like A Gathering of Eagles and Thieves Like Us, a performance that gained the attention of Milos Forman who was in the process of casting One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
