The father of SpiderMan 3 actress Lucy Gordon, who was found dead in her Paris apartment Wednesday, has spoken movingly about the daughter he describes as the 'light of our lives'."
"We have always been immensely proud of her and her achievements," said Richard Gordon. "We love her so much. She was called Lucy and she has lived up to that: she has been the light of our lives, me and my wife Sue, and daughter Katie.
"She was a lovely, generous, unselfish person who gave her all for others and thought of others before herself ... She has been the most beautiful daughter. We are obviously devastated."
The French agent of the actress, who would have celebrated her 29th birthday last Friday, also paid tribute. "She was sparkling, warm-hearted, touching and generous, and we will miss her sorely," said Elizabeth Simpson.
Police have ruled out foul play, but what led the promising actress to hang herself remains a mystery to her family and friends.
An unnamed male friend who apparently discovered Lucy's body is reported to have been interviewed by authorities in the French capital.
