Japanese actress Sei Ashina, aged 36, breathed her last at Tokyo’s apartment on Monday.
According to reports, the initial investigation says that this was a suicide. But, no note was found in the apartment.
The body was reportedly discovered by her brother after she stopped answering messages and calls a day prior.
Sei Ashina started her career as a model and then eventually paved her path into films and television projects.
She gained fame after she played a significant role in Francois Girard’s 2007 film Silk, also starring Keira Knightley and Michael Pitt.
She played the lead role in the TV show Nanase: The Psychic Wanderers and was seen in a significant role in the show Aibo: Tokyo Detective Duo.
Ashina’s tragic death is the latest in a series of suicides involving well-known Japanese talents, including actor Haruma Miura in July and reality show star Hana Kimura in May.
