French actor Gaspard Ulliel dies at 37 after skiing accident

French actor Gaspard Ulliel, who is set to appear in Marvel’s forthcoming TV series Moon Knight, has died aged 37.

 

His family told news agency AFP he died on Wednesday following a skiing accident in the Alps.

Ulliel, one of France’s best-known actors, has appeared in It’s Only the End of the World and Saint Laurent, the biopic of the French fashion designer.

The actor was skiing in the Savoie region on Tuesday when he collided with another person.

He suffered severe brain trauma and was airlifted to a hospital in Grenoble, where he died the next day.

The other skier was not hospitalised and an investigation is now under way.

The news of his death came just a day after the trailer for Moon Knight, in which he stars as Midnight Man, was released online.

As well as being a movie star, Ulliel also appeared as a model. As the face of the Bleu de Chanel fragrance, he was directed by Martin Scorsese for a 2010 television advertisement.

He is survived by his young son and his girlfriend, the model and singer Gaëlle Piétri.
