Ugly Betty actress Ashley Jensen's husband Terence Beesley was found dead at his home in the village of Camerton, Somerset, U.K. The cause of death of the 60-year-old was not revealed, media reports said late Sunday.

Jensen was "devastated" after the sudden death of her actor husband with whom she has an 8-year-old son, Francis. Beesley, who recently appeared in ITV's hit period drama "Victoria," was found unconscious after he collapsed at their home.

"Ashley is devastated and respectfully asks for privacy at this extremely sad and difficult time," Jensen's spokesman told The Sun. "Nobody saw this coming. Terence and Ashley's friends and family are all devastated. This is a heart-breaking time for them."

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Beesley added: "It is with great sadness that I can confirm that Terence passed away at the end of November."

Beesley died late last month, but the news about his death was made public on Sunday. Authorities are determining the cause of death and an inquest is expected to be concluded by the end of the year. It is unclear if Beesley was in poor health.

Jensen found fame in the Ricky Gervais comedy "Extras." She met Beesley in 1999 while both were working on a stage production of Shakespeare's King Lear. Jensen, who is best known for her role in "Extras" alongside Ricky Gervais and also for her 10-year stint in the comedy "Ugly Betty," married Beesley in 2007.

The Scottish actress is currently starring in the BBC's drama "Love, Lies and Records." Beesley featured in "EastEnders," "The Bill," "Where the Heart Is," "Casualty" and "Midsomer Murders."

The couple moved to the U.S. after Jensen successfully auditioned for a role in the ABC comedy "Ugly Betty" while on a California road trip with her husband. Their wedding took place in Big Sur and their dog Barney was the ring-bearer. After the birth of their son, the couple moved back to the U.K.​
