18-Jan-2015 • Bond News

British-born actor Khan Bonfils has died suddenly.

Known for his work in 10 feature films, including 'Skyfall' (2012), 'Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace' (1999) and 'Batman Begins' (2005), Bonfils died during a rehearsal for an upcoming theatre production on January 5th, 2015.

He was rehearsing for Dante's Inferno, which was due to open at The Rag Factory in east London this week when he collapsed.

Members of the Craft Theatre company and paramedics fought to save his life but he could not be resuscitated.

Chris Hislop, the company's spokesman, said: “Kan collapsed during a rehearsal and the director Rocky Rodriguez Jr, he performed CPR on location.

“An ambulance was called out but unfortunately he couldn't be resuscitated.”

The cause of death has yet to be ascertained, he added.

A statement from Craft Theatre said: “With great sadness, we announce the death of Kan Bonfils. His sudden loss is a tragedy and he will be sorely missed.”
