But Gaspard Ulliel has been carving out an incredible career since he was 13 years old in his native France and in Hollywood. His first role came at the age of 13, and at the age of 18, he began to stand out thanks to ‘Besen whoever they want’ by Michel Blanc. For that role, he received his first César nomination for Best Newcomer. A year later he would receive the next one, for ‘ Fugitives ‘, and in 2005 he finally won the statuette for ‘ Long Sunday of courtship ‘. He was nominated twice more for the César, both in the category of Best Actor: in 2014 for ‘ Saint Laurent ‘ and in 2017 for ‘ Only the End of the World ‘, for which he was the winner.
Throughout his career, he has come to work with extremely important filmmakers such as Jean-Pierre Jeunet (‘Long Dating Sunday’), Gus Van Sant (‘ Paris, Je time ‘), or Xavier Dolan (‘ Only the End of the World ‘). He also played Hannibal Lecter in the ‘ Silence of the Lambs ‘ prequel, ‘ Hannibal: Origin of Evil .’ Beyond the cinema, she was the image for a long time of the Bleu de Chanel fragrance, whose ads were directed by Steve McQueen or Martin Scorsese.
In addition to ‘Moon Knight’, Ulliel had the film ‘Plus que jamais’ pending release with Vicky Krieps (‘Tiempo’) and was going to star in ‘La Bête’ by Bertrand Bonello. The world loses one of its greatest promises just when it was about to eat, finally, the entire world.
