Christian Oliver of Valkyrie fame, his two daughters killed in plane crash

Christian Oliver’s small plane crashed into the water off the coast of a Caribbean island, killing the actor and his two daughters.

Christian Oliver, best known for his roles in films including Speed Racer and Valkyrie, died on Thursday along with his two young daughters when his small plane crashed into the water off the coast of a Caribbean island, Deadline reported. Oliver was 51. Robert Sachs, the plane’s owner and pilot, died in the crash as well.

Oliver, who appeared on the big screen with George Clooney in “The Good German” and in 2008 action-comedy “Speed Racer,” died aboard a privately owned, one-engine aircraft Thursday, the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said in a statement.

The plane was travelling from Bequia, a small island in the Grenadines, to St Lucia shortly after midday Thursday.

The family appeared to be on vacation, with Oliver posting on Instagram days earlier an image of a tropical beach and the caption: “Greetings from somewhere in paradise! To community and love… 2024 [here] we come!”

Oliver, born Christian Klepser, had over 60 movie and TV credits to his name, including a minor part in Tom Cruise movie “Valkyrie.”

Early-career roles included TV series “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” and movie “The Baby-Sitters Club.”

In his native Germany, Oliver starred for two seasons in popular cop show “Alarm fur Cobra 11.”
