‘Triangle of Sadness’ actor Charlbi Dean dies aged 32


Charlbi Dean, the South African actor and model who played a pivotal role in ‘Triangle of Sadness’, which won this year’s top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, has died aged 32. Dean died Monday in a New York hospital of a sudden and unexpected illness, his representatives announced on Tuesday. Dean also had a recurring role as the assassin Syonide on the DC Comics television series “Black Lightning,” which aired on The CW from 2018 to 2021. She was born Charlbi Dean Kriek in Cape Town, where she was also raised. Dean began modeling as a child, making frequent appearances on fashion shows and magazine covers in the decades that followed. She survived a near-fatal car crash in 2009. She made her acting debut in the 2010 film “Spud,” an adaptation of a popular South African novel about a boys’ boarding school starring Troye Sivan and John Cleese. She reprized her role in a 2013 sequel. In “Triangle of Sadness,” the English language debut of Swedish “Force Majeure” director Ruben Östlund, Dean and Harris Dickinson play a celebrity model couple on a cruise for the ultra-rich who descend into chaos. It also stars Woody Harrelson as the ship’s captain. The film won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in May and is released in the United States and most of Europe in October. At the festival before the film won the award, Dean told The Associated Press, “For me, I think I’ve already won. I’m already in Cannes with the film. It’s so amazing. It’s all just icing on the cake at this point for me, you know? »
