Charlbi Dean Dies Due to Unknown Causes
Ms. Dean and Harris Dickinson play models on a luxury cruise that goes horribly wrong in “Triangle of Sadness,” a satire of the ultra-wealthy in English by Swedish director Ruben stlund. It won the top prize at Cannes, the Palme d’Or, and will be shown at the Toronto and New York film festivals in September. Moviegoers can see it in theatres on October 7 if independent studio Neon follows through with that date.
New York Times critic Manohla Dargis called the film a “blunt, ugly sendup of class politics” that “sharply divided critics.”
In a promotional interview, Ms. Dean expressed delight at the film‘s divisive reception.
“Hopefully, people will leave the theater wanting to talk about it and discuss it,” she said. “Those are my favorite films: the ones that get my mind going, piss me off a little, make me laugh and cry.”
Mr. stlund released a statement on Instagram in which he described Ms. Dean’s passing as “a shock and a tragedy.”
“Charlbi had a care and sensitivity that lifted her colleagues and the entire film crew,” he wrote.
Charlbi Dean Kriek was born to Johan Kriek and Joanne Muller on February 5, 1990, in Cape Town, South Africa. She graced the covers of GQ and Elle in South Africa in 2008 and 2010, respectively.
