RuPaul Charles, the host of Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race, was asked during Sunday's Creative Arts Emmys about the passing of transgender actress-activist Alexis Arquette.

Arquette, the sibling of David and Patricia Arquette, starred in more than 40 films, including The Wedding Singer, I Think I Do and Killer Drag Queens on Dope. Alexis' transition from male to female was documented in the film Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother. She was a vocal supporter of transgender rights.

Arquette passed on Sunday at the age of 47.

Backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys, Yahoo! Music managing editor Lyndsey Parker asked RuPaul if he had any thoughts about Arquette's passing.

“I knew Alexis and Alexis lived her life from her heart and, you know, through her own authenticity,” RuPaul answered. “And that is the best way to live this life. And I'm sure when she looks back at this whole experience she'll say, 'You know what? I did it right.'”
