Ulliel suffered significant head trauma and was immediately hospitalised in Grenoble where he died as a result of his injuries. 

The second skier in the crash did not suffer any major injuries and investigators said the weather conditions at the time were good. 

His family confirmed the death in a statement given to AFP by his agent.

Ulliel won a Cesar – the French equivalent of an Oscar – for best actor in 2017 for It’s Only the End of the World in which he starred alongside Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.

He had already taken home a Cesar in 2004 for most promising actor after appearing in the World War I drama A Very Long Engagement alongside Audrey Tautou. 

Ulliel, who shares a five-year-old son with model-singer Gaëlle Piétri, was also the face of the Chanel men’s fragrance Bleu de Chanel

The mountain police service serving the site of the accident said it has been organizing five or six rescues per day in recent days as the snow has hardened.

In the neighbouring Haute-Savoie region, a five-year-old girl was killed Saturday when a skier crashed into her.

The man was handed preliminary manslaughter charges, according to the Haute-Savoie prosecutor, who cited excessive speed as the likely reason for the accident.

The first trailer for the upcoming TV series Moon Knight was only released on Tuesday, starring Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke.

The show will debut on the Disney Plus streaming service on March 30. 

Ulliel plays the role of Anton Mogart, also known as Midnight Man, in the anticipated Marvel show, based on the comic character created by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin in 1975.
