She played the sharp secretary for diabolical politician Frank Underwood in the hit Netflix series House of Cards.

Elizabeth Norment, 61, who appeared as Nancy Kaufberger on the show, died Oct. 13 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, her sister, Kate, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Her character, who always knew exactly what her boss wanted, worked for Underwood from the time he was a member of the House of Representatives from South Carolina through his upward political climb.

“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,” series showrunner Beau Willimon said in a statement on behalf of the show.

Kevin Spacey also remembered her.
