REST IN PEACE – GASPARD ULLIEL
French actor Gaspard Ulliel has sadly passed away at the age of 37 due to a ski accident. The actor was skiing in the Savoie region on Tuesday when he hit another person. After the hit, he suffered severe brain trauma, and at the time itself, Gaspard was airlifted to a hospital in Grenoble, where he died the next day. The other skier was not hospitalized and an investigation is now underway. Gaspard Ulliel recently portray the role of Midnight Man in Moon Knight, Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series.
In It’s Only the End of the World, Ulliel played Louis, a 34-year-old gay playwright dealing with a terminal illness, belatedly reuniting with his family after twelve years of separation. In classic Dolan fashion, the film picks apart the suffocating constraints of familial relationships with emotional deftness. Ulliel’s part was considered strong, particularly in his native Europe, and the film won the prestigious Grand Prix at Cannes Film Festival – an award not least owed to his elevating performance.
He appeared in a series of three shorts for the fashion house, each directed by a Hollywood heavyweight: first by Martin Scorsese, second by James Gray in 2014, and last in 2018 by 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen.
