The actor, who died on January 19, plays Anton Mogart in the Marvel series.
His appearance was expected. As announced, Gaspard ulliel pointed the tip of his nose in the third episode of the series Moon Knight, released Wednesday on Disney Plus. Ulliel plays Anton Mogart alias The Midnight Man in a sequence taking place in Cairo, where he notably meets the characters of Layla (May Calamawy) and Harrow (Ethan Hawke).

The episode of the Marvel series, titled “In All Friendship”, ended with a panel “in memory of Gaspard Ulliel“. This short role is all the more frustrating as it reminds us that the 37-year-old actor had the possibility of reviving his American career (he had already played Hannibal Lecter in the prequel The Origins of Evil, in 2007). The director of Moon KnightMohamed Diab, believed in it in any case:
“I was so happy to spin it. I felt he had everything to become a star in Hollywood. He had the talent, the physique… At the end of the shoot, I told him that Marvel fans were going to love him so much that they were going to want to see him come back..”
“I didn’t have a lot with him, but I remember we shared a scene or two…“, we had recently told the actress May Calamawy. “We had a lot of fun shooting it together. He was an adorable and very focused person, when it came to playing, he was very serious about his job. I was very sad to learn of his passing..”
Moon Knight: “Gaspard Ulliel was very serious when it came to acting”
Moon Knight will not be the very last role of Gaspard Ulliel. We should see him again Comaby Bertrand Bonello, and the drama More than ever, of Emily Atef, where he will give the reply to Vicky Krieps.
