He’s been spending a lot of time with his parents lately. Now the father of “Gladiator” star Ralf Moeller has died at the age of 93.

“Gladiator” star Ralf Moeller (63) mourns his father Helmut. The 93-year-old, who had enjoyed the sun again in the past few weeks, fell asleep peacefully on Wednesday, the actor said. In the end it was the heart.

“When I flew over or said goodbye, I always hugged him and said: Well, hopefully you can make it through the next few weeks until I’m back,” said Moeller, who lives in Los Angeles in normal times. Well it just happened. He will soon return to Germany and take care of the funeral. “Image” had previously reported on the death.

Moeller’s father Helmut had worked as a welder and fitter. In Recklinghausen he lived with his mother Ursula, called Uschi, a former shoe saleswoman. During the corona pandemic, son Ralf, who gained great fame as the Germanic swordsman Hagen in the blockbuster “Gladiator” in 2000, spent a lot of time with his parents in the Ruhr area to support them.
