 New pictures show actress in film she made with cameraman boyfriend

Tragic British actress Lucy Gordon left two suicide notes before hanging herself in the Paris flat she shared with her cinematographer boyfriend, her father said today.

Miss Gordon, 28, who played reporter Jennifer Dugan in Spider-Man 3, detailed her last wishes regarding her estate on one piece of paper and left a letter for her parents on another.

Her father Richard Gordon said a post-mortem examination proved she had died from hanging and that no other marks were found on her body. He spoke today to end speculation that the death might be anything other than suicide.

Speaking from the family’s Oxford home on what would have been Miss Gordon’s 29th birthday, Mr Gordon, 60, said: ‘There is no question of foul play. Lucy committed suicide.’

Miss Gordon’s boyfriend, revealed today as top cinematographer Jerome Alveras, was asleep in the Paris apartment when the actress hanged herself on Tuesday night.

Mr Gordon said: ‘We speak to him daily and he is also distraught.’

Almeras – the cinematographer behind last year’s Kristin Scott Thomas hit film I’ve Loved You So Long – has spent the last two days being questioned by police about his 28-year-old lover’s apparent suicide.

The pair are believed to have had a lovers’ tiff on Tuesday night with Mr Almeras waking up on Wednesday morning to a scene of horror.

Mr Almeras, a Frenchman in his 40s, rushed out of the two-bedroom rented flat in Paris’s 10th arrondissement  and alerted a nearby shopkeeper, but it was too late to save Miss Gordon.
