Gaspard Ulliel (French pronunciation: ​[ɡaspaʁ yljɛl]; 25 November 1984 – 19 January 2022) was a French actor. He played the young Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal Rising (2007). He also played Yves Saint Laurent in the biopic Saint Laurent (2014). He was a model for Chanel men's fragrance Bleu de Chanel.

He was hired to play Anton Mogart / Midnight Man in the Disney+ series Moon Knight (2022).

Ulliel was nominated for a César Award in 2002 and 2003. In 2004, he won that award for his role in A Very Long Engagement.[1] In 2017, he won a César Award for his role in It's Only the End of the World.

On 18 January 2022, Ulliel was injured while skiing at a resort in Savoie, France.[2] He crashed into another skier and had serious brain trauma because he was not wearing a helmet.[2] He was taken by helicopter to a hospital near La Tronche, France.[3] Ulliel died the next day from his injuries, at the age of 37.[4][5]
