'Hannibal' star Gaspard Ulliel dies at 37 after ski accident******AFP。
This file photo taken on May 17, 2014 shows French actor Gaspard Ulliel posing during a photocall for the film "Saint-Laurent" at the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes. French actor Gaspard Ulliel, 37, died in a skiing accident on January 19.。
French star Gaspard Ulliel, who played a young Hannibal Lecter and had a top role in a new Marvel TV series, died on Wednesday at 37 following a skiing accident, his family said.。
Ulliel was already in the top rank of French actors, and gained international attention for his performance as the famous cannibal in "Hannibal Rising" in 2007.。
He also had a leading role as Midnight Man in the new Marvel TV series "Moon Knight" starring Oscar Isaac, which launches on Disney in March.。
His family confirmed the death – which followed a skiing accident in southeast France on Tuesday – in a statement given to AFP by his agent.。
A spokesperson from the ski station said another skier crashed into Ulliel at the meeting of two slopes.。
He was airlifted to a hospital in Grenoble where he died on Wednesday, the agent said.。
Ulliel won a Cesar, the French equivalent of an Oscar, for best actor in 2017 for "It's Only the End of the World" in which he starred alongside Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.。
He had already taken home a Cesar in 2005 for most promising actor after appearing in the World War I drama "A Very Long Engagement" alongside Audrey Tautou.。
He starred in "Saint Laurent", one of two biopics about the legendary designer to be released in 2014, though he lost out at the Cesars to the star of the rival film, Pierre Niney.。
Niney was one of the first to react on Twitter, saying: "Broken heart. Gaspard was benevolence and kindness. Beauty and talent."
Ulliel was born just outside Paris on November 25, 1984 and picked up a small scar from a dog bite as a child.。
He said it helped him because it looked like a dimple.。
He was just 11 when he started working on screen and picked up two Cesar newcomer nominations in 2003 and 2004 before finally winning the following year.。
There were also some major modelling gigs, including a contract as the face of a Chanel aftershave.。
One of his directors described him as something of an enigma.。
"He's a strange boy, difficult to penetrate," said Rodolphe Marconi, who directed him in one of his early films, "The Last Day".。

Osasuna hold Real Madrid to goalless draw, Barca lose again******
MADRID, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid moved to the top of La Liga on goal difference from Sevilla, Real Betis and Real Sociedad after being held to a 0-0 draw at home to Osasuna on Wednesday night.
In the first 45 minutes, Real Madrid were limited by a serious defensive display by Osasuna's back five, and an insistence on constantly looking for Vinicius Jr as their main attacking outlet.
Jon Moncayola hit the post for Osasuna four minutes after the restart after good work from Chimy Avila, while at the other end, Karim Benzema smacked a curling shot against the woodwork.
Real Madrid continued to attack down the wings in the second half, but every ball they sent into the Osasuna penalty area was repelled by the visitors' rock-solid defense, and although Marcelo and Casemiro both went close in the final minutes, Osasuna claimed a point to show their current sixth place is no fluke.
Real Sociedad will return to the top if they take a point from their visit to Celta Vigo on Thursday.
FC Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was sacked after his side lost 1-0 away to Rayo Vallecano.
Radamel Falcao's 30th minute goal separated the two sides as Barca tried but failed to find an equalizer in the second half, with Memphis Depay seeing a 71st minute penalty well saved by Rayo keeper Stole Dimitrievski, who also claimed the rebound.
Sergio Aguero, Gavi and Luuk de Jong all went close for Barca, but Koeman's side failed to find an equalizer and have not won any of their last five away games this season.
Sevilla thought that Lucas Ocampos had scored a late winner to overturn Antonio Sanchez's first-half opener for Real Mallorca.
However, his strike was ruled offside and the two teams shared the points with Erik Lamela's powerful shot leveling for Sevilla 15 minutes from time.
Real Betis are also right in the battle for the top four after thrashing Valencia 4-1. Borja Iglesias put Betis 2-0 ahead, and although Gabriel Paulista's 39th minute goal gave Valencia brief hope, second-half strikes from German Pezzella and Juanmi rounded off a comfortable win for Betis.
Valencia have taken just three points from their last seven matches, and with games against Villarreal, Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad on the horizon, Jose Bordalas needs to see a rapid improvement.
Atletico and Real Sociedad both play on Thursday, while Tuesday saw Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao draw 1-1, while Alaves beat Elche 1-0 and Villarreal and Cadiz drew 3-3. Enditem
