No need to say that her role in ER appeared to be a great success for the young actress. It gave her money and recognition she had been dreaming about.
Though Vanessa had to quit the series after three seasons, she confessed it was a real luck to become a cast member of the longest-running medical drama on the American television.
Marquez also had supporting roles in Melrose Place, Stand and Deliver, and Seinfeld.
Vanessa’s relationship with George Clooney
During her career in Hollywood, Vanessa had a chance to work with several A-list heartthrobs, including George Clooney.
In his turn, Clooney denied any allegations against him.
Marquez reportedly suffered from a mental disorder, which became the cause of her tragic death. The star was having seizures when the officers arrived at her place. Besides, she was armed with a gun. When the officers’ attempt to calm down Marquez failed, they were forced to open fire. Vanessa was 49 when she lost her life.
Marquez also suffered from the immune disorder. She explained her diagnosis even caused her to be ‘homebound’ due to chronic pain.
Following Vanessa’s demise, ER cast members and fans honored her memory with touching tributes.
We tragically lost a member of our ER family yesterday. Vanessa Marquez played a nurse when the show first aired. Sending out condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in eternal peace.

Right now I have been crying for literally hours and I did not sleep at all last night. My dear friend Vanessa Marquez was shot and killed by the South Pasadena Police yesterday. She played Nurse Wendy on Er. She was the kindest, gentlest person I know.

Heartbroken by this news. I knew Vanessa Marquez, were both @TCM fans and talked classic movies for hours on Facebook. I knew she suffered severe health issues that affected her personality but never imagined this outcome. #RIP https://t.co/dLjWjHKZvC
