Charlbi Dean, an up-and-coming actor from South Africa, has died.
Dean, whose breakout role was in the 2022 film "Triangle of Sadness," died Monday in New York from an "unexpected sudden illness" at age 32, a rep for the actor confirmed Tuesday to NBC News.
No additional details were immediately provided regarding the illness.
Dean made her acting debut in 2010 in the South African movie "Spud," returning for the movie's 2013 sequel “Spud 2: The Madness Continues.”
She appeared for two seasons in the CW’s superhero series “Black Lightning,” playing an assassin named Syonide.
Dean starred alongside veteran actor Woody Harrelson and British actor Harris Dickinson in “Triangle of Sadness,” a satirical dark comedy written and directed by acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund.
Dean and Dickinson play shipwrecked fashion models in the movie, which won the Palme d’Or, the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, this past May.
“Triangle of Sadness” is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on Oct. 7.
