    Lucy died yesterday.
    She apparently commited suicide at her home in Paris.
    I am shocked to hear that news.
    My thoughts go to those close to her and everyone who loved her.
    I worked with her a few years ago.
    I'll remember your sweet smile and the look in your eyes.
    She was a sweet and lovely girl.:heart::heart::heart:
    R.I.P. Lucy

    British actress Lucy Gordon, who starred in Spider-Man 3, has committed suicide in her Paris flat, her agent has confirmed.
    Police in the French capital said the body of the 28-year-old, who was tipped to become the new Jane Birkin, was found hanging from the ceiling of her mansion block apartment near the River Seine.
    "It was a horrific scene," said one officer.
    "The young woman had taken her own life in terrible circumstances. We are not seeking anyone else. It was a clear case of suicide."
    The Oxford-born actress and model played the character Jennifer Dugan in the third instalment of Spider-Man.
    She appeared in around a dozen other films, having made her big screen debut in 2001, including two that are in post-production.
    In one of those, a French film charting the life of late singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, she played Swinging 60s actress and singer Jane Birkin.
    Miss Gordon's fresh looks and passion for France had seen her compared to Birkin in real life.
    The Gainsbourg biopic, Vie Heroique, is currently being previewed at the Cannes Film Festival.
    A festival organiser said: "We are devastated by this news. All those attending the festival had been hugely impressed by Lucy's work.
    "She was a star in the making."
    Agents for Miss Gordon, who had recently moved to Paris from New York, confirmed she had "ended her own days".

    :shock::shock: Oh my god, is this serious? I can hardly believe it!. I'm shocked. She seemed like such a promising actress, just yesterday I was looking for more pictures of her Birkin character on google..

    god I'm sad. she was so young. and the fact that this is allegedly suicide makes it a lot more puzzling. :cry:

    RIP. :heart:

    So sad. I saw her some years ago in a french movie, "russian dolls", and was amazed by her beauty. In the last times she finally got an important movie role as Jane Birkin, I was sure her cinema carerr was taking off now... And now, this devastating new.
    Rest in Peace, Lucy

    I just looked her up recently because of the Serge Gainsbourg movie. I wasn't expecting to hear about her passing soon after. :( R.I.P.
