Gaspard Ulliel, one of the most well-known actors from the French film industry, who is expected to appear next in Marvel’s much-anticipated series Moon Knight, died following a skiing accident in the French Alps on Wednesday, January 19, according to reports. The actor was 37. 

French Prime Minister Jean Castex shared condolences on Twitter, and said “Gaspard Ulliel grew up with cinema and cinema grew with him. They loved each other madly. It is with a heavy heart that we will no longer see his most beautiful interpretations. We have lost a French actor.”

France's Culture Minister, Roselyne Bachelot said: "Such a brilliant actor who was reaped by the sickle of death at the peak of his career. For almost 20 years, he was present in our lives with magnificent performances, winning his first Cesar for best male newcomer with A Very Long Engagement."

One of the most memorable roles of Ulliel is the one that the actor portrayed in Xavier Dolan's 2016 Canadian-French film It's Only the End of The World. He appeared alongside Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel. This film won three French Oscars and the Grand Prix at Cannes. 

Another powerful performance by the Cesar-winning actor was in Bertrand Bonello's biopic titled Saint Laurent, in which he played the famous French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
