The 51-year-old actor, known for his roles in films like “The Good German” with George Clooney and “Speed Racer” in 2008, was aboard a privately owned, single-engine aircraft when the tragic incident occurred on Thursday, as reported by the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force.

Following the crash, fishermen, divers, and the coast guard quickly responded to the scene, where four bodies, including those of Oliver, his daughters Madita (10) and Annik (12), and pilot Robert Sachs, were recovered.

The family was on a journey from Bequia, a small island in the Grenadines, to St. Lucia, around midday on Thursday. It appears they were on vacation, with Oliver sharing a photo on Instagram a few days earlier of a tropical beach with the caption: “Greetings from somewhere in paradise! To community and love… 2024 [here] we come!”

Christian Oliver, originally Christian Klepser, had an impressive career with over 60 movie and TV credits, including a minor role in Tom Cruise’s “Valkyrie.” His early-career roles featured appearances in the TV series “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” and the film “The Baby-Sitters Club.” In Germany, he starred in the popular cop show “Alarm Fur Cobra 11” for two seasons.
