Gaspard Ulliel, who is set to appear in Marvel’s forthcoming TV series Moon Knight
Gaspard Ulliel, a French actor who was supposed to star in Marvel’s upcoming TV series Moon Knight, has died at the age of 37. His relatives told AFP that he died on Wednesday in the Alps after a skiing accident. Ulliel, a well-known actor in France, has starred in films such as It’s Only the End of the World and Saint Laurent, a biography of the French fashion designer.
On Tuesday, the actor was skiing in the Savoie region when he crashed with another individual. He was taken to a hospital in Grenoble after suffering severe head trauma, where he died the next day. The other skier was not hospitalized, and the incident is being investigated.
His death was announced barely one day after the teaser for Moon Knight, in which he plays Midnight Man, was uploaded on the internet.
French finance minister Bruno Le Maire tweeted, “French cinema is losing a wonderful talent, full of charm and fire.”
Caspar Salmon, a writer and critic, paid tribute to Gaspard Ulliel, calling him “a magnetism, talent, and beauty actor who had already carved out an amazing and varied career.” Ulliel worked as a model in addition to becoming a movie star. Martin Scorsese directed him in a television commercial for Chanel’s Bleu de Chanel fragrance in 2010.
Ulliel, who was born just outside of Paris in 1984, began acting at the age of 11 and gained international fame for his role as a young Hannibal in 2007’s Hannibal Rising. In 2017, he won the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his portrayal in It’s Only the End of the World, alongside Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.
He earned most promising actor in 2005 for his role in the World War One drama A Very Long Engagement, in which Audrey Tautou also starred.
