It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announce that actress Lupita Tovar, star of the Spanish-Language Version of 1931’s Dracula, has died at the age of 106 years old. The news was broken by her niece Lucy Tovar on Facebook.
As well as her own career, Lupita’s family have also had success. Her daughter Susan Kohner earned an Oscar nomination for Imitation of Life (1959). whilst her grandchildren Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz, (Kohner’s sons) shared an Oscar screenplay nomination for About a Boy (2002).
