Like most celebrities at the start of the year, Gaspard Ulliel had decided to spend some time to recharge his batteries in the mountains. He then took the opportunity to go skiing. Unfortunately for him, he had been the victim of a terrible accident which caused him a major head trauma. As a reminder, the actor had taken one of the slopes of the Domaine de la Rosière in Savoie. It was then that he collided head-on with another skier. He was then rushed by helicopter to the Grenoble University Hospital but his injuries were far too serious to allow him to survive.

Gaspard Ulliel had known fame thanks to the role he had played in Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles. He also appeared on screen in It’s Only The End Of The World.
