Tragic news that French actor Gaspard Ulliel has passed away at the age of 37, the result of a serious ski accident. The Cesar-winning actor was hospitalized Tuesday after suffering a head injury and has not survived, according to the actor’s family and local agent. The 37-year-old actor was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Grenoble following a collision on the slopes in the Savoie region,” Deadline’s report continues.

Most horror fans know him as a young Hannibal Lecter in the film Hannibal Rising, an adaptation of the novel written by Thomas Harris. Which is a very closely adapted version of the book, it is viewed by some (who are wrong) as the weakest entry in the Lecter film franchise. 

Gaspard Ulliel’s other credits include Brotherhood of the Wolf, Summer Things, A Very Long Engagement, Paris, je t’aime, Saint Laurent, The Last Day, and It’s Only the End of the World.

Ulliel is survived by his 6-year-old son Orso and his girlfriend Gaelle Petri.
