As several Hollywood industry magazines consistently report, Charlbi Dean Kriek, who often appeared just as Charlbi Dean, died on Monday, August 29, 2022 in New York City. Her death is said to have been the result of a “sudden illness”. Born on February 5, 1990, the South African who worked as a model and actress was only 32 years old.
Charlbi Dean Kriek moved into the Hollywood spotlight this year when Ruben Ostlund’s latest film “Triangle Of Sadness” celebrated its world premiere in Cannes. Kriek played one of the main roles in the social satire and was happy with the director and her co-stars about winning the Golden Palm 2022.
In “Triangle Of Sadness” Charlbi Dean Kriek stars as successful influencer Yaya, who is taken on a luxury cruise with her model boyfriend Carl (Harris Dickinson). On board, crew boss Paula (Vicki Berlin) takes care of her well-heeled and discerning guests (including Iris Berben, Sunnyi Melles and Zlatko Buric), while the permanently drunk captain (Woody Harrelson) hides in his cabin. Things go haywire during a violent storm.
Charlbi Dean Kriek will be seen in cinemas in her last role from October 13, 2022. But even before “Triangle Of Sadness” she worked as an actress for a long time, was in front of the camera for two seasons as Syonide in the series “Black Lightning” and played in the drama “An Interview with God – What Would You Ask Him?” starring alongside David Strathairn and Brenton Thwaites and in the horror film Don’t Sleep.
Kriek made her acting debut in the 2010 South African book adaptation Spud, starring Troye Sivan and John Cleese, and starred in the sequel Spud 2: The Madness Continues. Her work as a model has landed her on the cover of Vogue and Venice Magazine, among others.
