It took home the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Picture Festival in May as Swedish filmmaker Ruben stlund’s debut English-language film.

The Associated Press quoted Dean as saying, “For me, I’m like, I’ve already won,” in reference to her performance at Cannes. With the movie, I’m already in Cannes.
Who has given her honour?
The actress who starred in Ruben stlund’s award-winning film Triangle of Sadness received an emotional homage on Instagram from the filmmaker.
“Charlbi’s sudden demise is a shock and a tragedy,” Stlund said in the description.
It is a privilege to have met and worked with her, he continued.
The entire film team and Charlbi’s coworkers were inspired by the care and concern she exhibited. I’m terribly saddened by the idea that she won’t be by our sides in the future. My heart goes out to her family, friends, and fiancé Luke during this trying time.

On Twitter, playwright Jeremy O. Harris paid tribute to Dean and called him “a great talent.”
This is just devastating, he remarked. I had never seen Charlbi Dean perform before attending Triangle of Sadness, but she was such a captivating performance. She portrayed the character with a vulnerability and intelligence that a weaker actor would have rejected.
