While police continue to investigate the apparent suicide of British actress Lucy Gordon, her former manager fondly remembers the budding starlet who is best known in the United States for her role as TV reporter Jennifer Dugan in Spider-Man 3. Speaking to, Lee Daniels says Gordon was “one of the kindest” women he has worked but admits she was a bit “fragile.”

“She was just like a ball of light that comes charging at you with so much love,” the Monster’s Ball producer said. “In hindsight, she was fragile…like a fragile, little dove.”

Daniels got the former model her first movie role Perfume. “She was so beautiful, totally selfless,” he added. “She was just fabulous…I love her so much.”

“What signs are there, ever, to indicate this suicide at all? I thought maybe because she was so sensitive. Just like really caring, sensitive to the world around her.”

Gordon was found dead in her Paris flat on Wednesday morning, hanging from the ceiling. She was just two days shy of her 29th birthday.
