Dean, a rising South African actor who most recently appeared in "Triangle of Sadness," the Palme d'Or winner from this year, passed away on Monday in New York due to an unforeseen illness.
In the South African movie "Spud" from 2010, she had her acting debut. In the follow-up, "Spud 2: The Madness Continues," from 2013, she made a comeback.
They portrayed Carl and Yaya, a high-fashion celebrity couple who are invited on an ultra-rich cruise that first appears to be an utopia for the wealthy social media influencers.
But they quickly learn that their shipmates also include a Marxist captain, a British arms trader, a Russian oligarch, and other crooks. On board, there is a change in the balance of power, and there is class struggle.
Dean started modeling at the age of 6 and signed with Alfa Model Management at 12. He has since been on magazine covers and in advertisements, catalogs, and other ads in addition to acting.
