At only 37 years old, Gaspard Ulliel has multiplied the successes. Revealed at the age of 19 in The Lost by André Téchiné, he won the César for best male hope a year later for his performance in A long engagement Sunday. In front of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s camera, he camps opposite Audrey Tatou, Manech, a young soldier sent to the Somme during the First World War. He also distinguished himself at another ceremony in 2014 with Saint Laurent, where he was nominated for the title of best actor. An undeniable talent until then, but which takes on its full dimension when he finds himself playing the main character of Just the end of the world by Xavier Dolan. The adaptation of Jean-Luc Lagarce’s play earned him a second César, the ultimate consecration.
This brilliant career in France did not go unnoticed and aroused the curiosity of Hollywood. It appears especially in Hannibal Lecter: The Origins of Evil, where he portrays the criminal in his youth. He should also be in the cast of the next Marvel series, Moon Knight. Facing Oscar Isaac, he will play Anto Mogart, better known as Midnight Man.
The announcement of the death of Gaspart Ulliel obviously caused a reaction, even in the higher echelons of government. Thus, Jean Castex paid tribute to the actor through a publication on Twitter. This is also the case of Roselyne Bachelot, Minister of Culture. On Instagram, some actors also shared their sadness and thoughts for his family.
His sensitivity and the intensity of his acting made Gaspard Ulliel an exceptional actor. The cinema today loses an immense talent.
I send my condolences to his loved ones and my loving thoughts to all who mourn him today.
