'Hannibal Rising' actor Gaspard Ulliel dies in skiing accident

Gaspard Ulliel, best known for portraying the young Hannibal Lecter in “Hannibal Rising” and the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in “Saint Laurent,” died on Wednesday, the day after a skiing accident in France.

French actor Gaspard Ulliel who was cast as the character of Anton Mogart in the upcoming Marvel mini-series Moon Knight died at the age of 37. The cause of death was ruled as a head injury following a ski accident.

Gaspard rose to global fame after he took the lead in “Hannibal Rising,” the 2007 prequel to the 1991 hit “The Silence of the Lambs,” playing Hannibal Lecter as an oddly sympathetic, if still horribly murderous, character. The film received mixed reviews.

But he won more unanimous praise for his film “Saint Laurent” (2014). He was nominated for a Cesar Award for Most Promising Actor in 2002 and 2003. In 2004 he won that award for his role in A Very Long Engagement, which co-starred Audrey Tautou.

In 2017, he won the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his role in Xavier Dolan's It's Only the End of the World.

Gaspard Ulliel’s family confirmed his death in a statement. He is survived by his partner Gaelle Pietri and his 6-year-old son.

Gaspard Ulliel starrer series “Moon Knight” will premiere on Disney+ on March 30.
