Jean-Marc Vallée, director and producer who won an Emmy Award for directing the Big Little Lies on the HBO series and was nominated for several Oscars for the 2013 Dallas Buyers Club, died at the age of 58.

Valle died suddenly over the weekend in a cabin outside Quebec City, Canada, said his representative Bumbleward.

The Canadian director was praised for his realistic approach to filmmaking and collaboration with people such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

He has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including the Best Picture Award.

Valle is often shot with natural light and a handheld camera, and the actor can improvise the script and move around freely within the scene.

“They can move wherever they want,” he said in a 2014 interview about his actor.

“It emphasizes storytelling, emotions, and characters. I try not to interfere too much.”

He worked with Witherspoon to oversee the first season of Big Little Lies in 2017 and oversee Adams at Sharp Objects in 2018.

Valle won the Directors Guild of America Award for both.
