With just over a month until the premiere of Moon Knight on Disney Plus, one of its stars Gaspard Ulliel has passed away from a tragic Ski accident in the Savoie region of the Alps at the age of 37.
Multi-award-winning actor Gaspard plays Midnight Man who first appeared in the comics in Moon Knight #3 in 1981 and although we don’t know how big a part he has in the show at the moment he’s slated to be in all six episodes.
Gaspard Ulliel was a very talented French actor with years of acting experience and had a very promising career ahead. Along with Moon Knight, he also stars in “More Than Ever” which is due out later this year, and La Bête which is still in pre-production.
His family released the tragic news of his death on Wednesday 19th January via news agency AFP. From reports, it appears the accident happened on Tuesday when he had a collision with someone on the ski slope and died the next day from brain trauma.
Gaspard Ulliel has had a very inspirational career in French cinema with a few big American acting roles too, he even played Hannibal in 2007.
