South African actress Charlbi Dean, who appeared in Palme d’Or winning film “Triangle of Sadness”, has died at the age of 32.
Her representative, while confirming the report that Dean had passed away from a sudden unexpected illness, told newsmen the development is quite devastating.
The celebrity website and Hollywood publication Deadline said that Dean, who was also a model, had died in New York City.
Neither the representative nor the reports provided any details on the illness that caused her death.
Dean co-starred alongside Woody Harrelson and Harris Dickinson in Swedish director Ruben Ostlund’s “Triangle of Sadness.”
The sharp satire about class conflict won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May this year.
