London, May 22 (ANI): ‘Spider Man 3’ star Lucy Gordan was found hanging in her apartment in Paris on Wednesday.
The British actress, who would have turned 29 today, was found dead in a mansion flat she shared with her unnamed boyfriend.
He told cops that he went to bed the night before and found her dead in another bedroom the next morning.
He also revealed that Gordan had been deeply affected by the recent suicide of a friend in Britain.
Police, however, have ruled out any foul play.
Gordon’s father Richard, 60, said the tragedy had come “completely out of the blue” to him, his wife Susan, 60, and their other daughter Katie, 27.
“The whole family is so proud of Lucy – and we always have been. We have loved her so much throughout her life,” the Daily Express quoted Richard as saying.
“She was the light of mine, her mum Sue’s, and her sister Katie’s lives. Lucy was a lovely, generous and unselfish person, who always gave so much thought to other people and put them before herself.
“Acting was what she had always wanted to do.
“She had been acting since the age of two, which was really as soon as she could walk.
“Her career had been just taking off and it’s a tragedy that it has been cut short so soon,” he added.
The actress moved to Paris when she took on the role of Jane Birkin in the biopic of Serge Gainsbourg, the French actor-director who became Birkin’s lover. (ANI)
