I am heartbroken to report the death of Chris Huvane.
Chris was the youngest brother in the incredibly talented Huvane family. His older brothers are Kevin, a partner in CAA, and Stephen, the publicist for actresses like Julianne Moore and Jennifer Aniston.
Chris was 47, and it’s reported that he committed suicide after battling depression. The Chris I remember was such a happy young man. He used to dee jay at CAA events and other parties. He was full of fun and life. More recently he’d been a talent manager with clients that included Margot Robbie, Julianne Moore, Zoey Deutch, Zach Braff, the late Chadwick Boseman and Margaret Qualley.
Back around the year 2000 I wrote a feature about the Huvanes in the first issue of Tina Brown’s Talk Magazine. It was always one of my favorite assignments. They were a bright, motivated family of New York kids who all got their start with jobs at the fondly remembered Wyndham Hotel on West 58th St. Kevin and Stephen already had booming careers then, their sister was boldly running the family, and Chris was like a big puppy ready to take on the world.
My condolences to the whole Huvane family, all their friends and their clients– who are friends, too. Everyone loved Chris, and this hurts. Whatever pain he was in, it’s over for him. But no one should do this, we know that. If you’re feeling low, call a friend, call the Suicide Prevention line, do anything but this.
