She hung herself in her Paris apartment, her dead body was found at la Rue des Petites Ecuries after her boyfriend alerted a nearby shopkeeper. A local detective
declares: “There were no suspicious circumstances. It appears that the young woman took
her own life.” – source: Daily Telegraph Online.
“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.” These are the words of another officer. Source Sky News.
Her very last role and piece of work was the film about the singer Serge Gainsbourg in which she played British actress Jane Birkin. Filming were only recently finished, and she accomplished to fully satisfy the producer and director with this last role. T railers for the movie were broadcast at the Cannes Film Festival.
To quote director Joann Sfar and producers Marc du Pontavice and Didier Lupfer: ” The film owes a lot to the generosity, gentleness and immense talent of Lucy Gordon.” The title is set right now to be ” Serge Gainsbourg, vie héroïque “.
