28-year old British actress Lucy Gordon was found dead in her apartment after she reportedly hanged herself. She took her own life just two days shy of her 29th birthday.
Gordon, who has appeared in ‘Spider-Man 3,’ ‘Serendipity’ and ‘Frost,’ was found dead on Wednesday, and according to the Daily Telegraph, she hung herself following a friend’s recent suicide.
“There were no suspicious circumstances. It appears that the young woman took her own life,” a law enforcement officer told the Telegraph.
Another source told Sky News that “it was an horrific scene. The young woman had taken her own life in terrible circumstances. We are not seeking anyone else. It was a clear case of suicide.”
Gordon’s father said the death was a “complete shock.”
Speaking from the family’s home in Oxford, Richard Gordon told Britain’s Press Association that his daughter was “a natural actress all her life, since she was about 2.”
“She’s always loved being on stage and in front of the camera and she has kept all her naturalness and charm all the way through. She has been the most beautiful daughter. We are obviously devastated.”
Gordon is set to portray British singer-actress Jane Birkin in ‘Serge Gainsbourg (a heroic life),’ an upcoming biopic.
