The British actress Lucy Gordon committed suicide in her Paris flat on Wednesday.

Paris- British actor Lucy Gordon, an up-and-coming talent who played a role in Spider-Man 3 and will soon appear as Jane Birkin in a Serge Gainsbourg biopic, has killed herself in Paris, her agent said

The 29-year-old died on Wednesday, Gordon's representative Elisabeth Simpson said in a statement. According to press reports in Paris and London she hanged herself in a flat she shared with a boyfriend, who raised the alarm.

Selected scenes from Gordon's latest movie, "Gainsbourg: Heroic Life", have been played this week at the Cannes Film Festival and she was seen in the film industry as a possible future star.

"The film owes a lot to the generous spirit, to the kindess and immense talent of Lucy Gordon," director Joann Sfar and producers Marc du Pontavice and Didier Lupfer said in a statement.

Gordon lived in France, where she was best known for her breakthrough role in Cedric Klapisch's romantic comedy "Poupees Russes" (Russian Dolls).
