South African model and actress Charlibee Dean, who was on the verge of becoming a star, has died suddenly at the age of 32.

Dean died of a sudden and unexpected illness in New York City on Monday, according to a statement from his rep to TMZ and Deadline.

It is not clear what health problems Dean was suffering from.

Dean was a model who appeared in a handful of films and TV shows over the past decade. She is perhaps best known for playing the villain Sineide in Black Lightning, a superhero show on The CW. She also went by the name Charlby Creek early in her career.

Although he’s had only a handful of small parts over the past decade, some critics are expecting him to return later this year, thanks to his starring role in Triangle of Sadness, a sort of castaway-meets-the-white. -Lotus satire. Will be out toward the finish of this current year. Released in October.

The Depression trilogy won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and also stars Woody Harrelson.

Social media users immediately reached out to Dean’s boyfriend, Luke Chase Volker, to express their condolences. Many people left their messages on an Instagram post published in May, in which he celebrated his star turn in The Depression Trilogy.

“Sorry to lose my beautiful love,” one person wrote. “Life is so unfair.”

“Sending your love and strength,” said another.

Dean survived a near-death experience in 2009 when he and his then-boyfriend were involved in a car accident in Cape Town, South Africa. According to reports, the accident then put Dean in the ICU and he suffered multiple broken bones and a collapsed lung.
