I am shocked and saddened to report French actor and “Moon Knight” star Gaspard Ulliel has died after a skiing accident in the Alps on Wednesday (January 19).
He was 37.
The Cesar-winning actor was skiing in the Savoie region when he collided with another skier at an intersection between two slopes and suffered a serious brain trauma on Tuesday.
He was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Grenoble. Local authorities have opened an investigation into the accident, according to the AFP.
Ulliel was one of France’s best-known actors and worked with critically acclaimed filmmakers in France and abroad.
He delivered a powerful performance as the famous French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” which competed at Cannes.
Gaspard Ulliel stars in Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated series, “Moon Knight,” as the Midnight Man.
He is survived by his 6-year-old son, Orso, and his girlfriend Gaelle Petri.
My sincerest condolences to his family and all who knew and loved Gaspard.
