Lucy Gordon Suicide Paris

LucyGordonSuicideLucy Gordon the young British actress famous for her role as a British Reporter in Spider Man 3 has hung herself in a Paris apartment yesterday morning - two days before her 29th birthday.

Her body was found hanging from the ceiling of her Rue des Petits Ecuries (10th Arrondissement) rented apartment.

Apparently she had been heard arguing with her boyfriend the night before. He claims to have gone to bed and then woke in the morning to find his lover had hanged herself.

Shocked by the horrific scene, he ran into the street below where he alerted a local shopkeeper.

Lucy's father said "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."

A Police officer who attended the scene said - "The circumstances of the young woman’s death were horrific."

Lucy Gordon had just finished playing the actress and singer Jane Birkin in Je t'Aime Moi Non Plus - a biopic about the late French singer Serge Gainsbourg currently being previewed at the Cannes Film Festival. Described by one reviewer as
the overall tone of the trailer was classy Euro art softcore, with a touch of cartoon whimsy.

Here's a clip of the original Gainsbourg/Birkin hit record of the same name

Lucy Gordon had only recently moved to Paris from New York.

Lucy Gordon also had a starring role in a new French comedy Cineman, due out later this year and starring the popular French comedian Franck Dubosc. She also had a larger part in the romantic comedy The Russian Dolls where she co-starred with Audrey Tautou.

Very sad.
