Hollywood actor Christian Oliver, known for his roles in the films “Speed Racer,” “Valkyrie” and “Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fortune,” died in a plane crash in the Caribbean along with his two daughters. He was 51 years old, his daughters Annik and Madita were 12 and 10 years old.
Oliver flew from St. Lucia to the island of Bequia in a light aircraft piloted by its owner, Robert Sachs. Shortly after takeoff, the plane began to fall. Video taken by an eyewitness shows him crashing almost vertically into the water and drowning. Fishermen and divers rushed to the crash site, but were unable to help those on board. Soon, coast guard personnel recovered the bodies of two adults and two children from a 20-meter depth.
The network is already talking about the mysticism accompanying the tragedy. The fact is that shortly before his death, Oliver published a post on his Instagram* that reporters from The New York Times called “creepy.” Under a photo of the beach at sunset, the actor wrote: “Hello from somewhere in heaven! Towards community and love... 2024, here we go.”
Christian Oliver moved from Germany to the United States at the age of 21, where he worked as a model and took acting lessons. In Hollywood, the actor starred in several high-profile roles, working with such A-list stars as George Clooney, Tobey Maguire and Cate Blanchett. Two new films with his participation are due to be released soon: “London Blue” and “Be Silent Forever.”
