Hollywood actor Christian Oliver (born Clapser) died in a plane crash near the Caribbean. He was accompanied by his two daughters, 10-year-old Annik and 12-year-old Madita, as well as the pilot. None of them survived.
The death of the American actor of German descent was reported by The Guardian. The fact of the crash was confirmed by representatives of the Royal Police of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The light aircraft took off from the airport of Bequia (one of the islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines) and was heading to neighboring St. Lucia. The plane crashed in the waters of the Caribbean. The Coast Guard recovered the bodies of two adults and two children from the water.
Just five days before Christmas, 51-year-old Oliver finished his last filming in the upcoming movie Forever Hold Your Peace directed by Nick Lyon. The latter confirmed the star's death on Instagram and called Oliver a great colleague, actor, and friend.
Two days before his death, the actor posted a photo of the beach, wished his followers all the best for 2024, and wrote, "Let love rule"
A video that may show the moment of the accident is circulating online.
