Director Peter Webber:


Filmmaker Xavier Dolan wrote (translated from French) on Instagram: “It is implausible, insane, and so painful to even think of writing these words. Your discreet laughter, your watchful eye. Your scar. Your talent. Your listening. Your whispers, your kindness. All the features of your person were in fact born of a sparkling sweetness. It is your whole being that has transformed my life, a being that I loved deeply, and that I will always love. I can’t say anything else, I’m exhausted, stunned by your departure.”

Actor Jean Dujardin simply wrote “Gaspard” on Instagram.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex wrote that Ulliel “grew up with cinema and cinema grew with him”.
