According to Deadline, the actor was “hospitalized on Tuesday after suffering a head injury and did not recover. He was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Grenoble following a collision on the slopes in the Savoie region.”

Ulliel was about to make his American screen debut playing the villain Midnight Man in Marvel’s new Disney+ series ‘Moon Knight,’ which stars Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke and debuted its first trailer Monday night. No word yet on how the actor’s death might affect the series, which is set to premiere on March 30th.

Born in Boulogne-Billancourt, France in 1984, Ulliel was probably best known in the United States for playing a young Hannibal Lecter in the 2007 prequel, ‘Hannibal Rising.’
