Actress Lucy Gordon found dead in Paris

French Police believe 28-year-old committed suicide

CANNES -- Young British actress Lucy Gordon was found dead in her Paris apartment Wednesday, just two days before her 29th birthday, French police confirmed Thursday.

Police said Gordon hanged herself, though gave no motive for the tragedy.

Born in Oxford, young model-turned-actress Gordon has starred in more than a dozen films, including Cedric Klapisch's "The Russian Dolls," Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" and French title Yann Moix's "Cineman" soon to be released in Gaul.

The actress recently wrapped production on Joann Sfar's anticipated Serge Gainsbourg biopic "Serge Gainsbourg (a heroic life)," in which she plays Jane Birkin.

"The film 'Gainsbourg (a heroic life)' owes a lot to Lucy Gordon's generosity, kindness and the immense talent," Sfar and the film's producers Marc du Pontavice and Didier Lupfer said in a press release sent out late Wednesday night in France.

The film will hit Gallic theaters next year.
