Mehran Karimi Nasseri, an Iranian political refugee who lived at Paris’ Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport for more than 18 years and who inspired director Steven Spielberg in his film The Terminal, died on Saturday, according to Agence France-Presse, citing a source at the airport.
He died of natural causes at the 2F building just before noon on Saturday, the source said. He added that after spending a large chunk of the money he made on the film, he returned to the airport a few weeks ago. Thousands of euros were found on him.
Mehran Karimi Nasseri, known by his nickname “Sir Alfred”, was born in the Suleiman Mosque in the Iranian province of Ahwaz in 1945 and lived in Roissy, north of Paris
In November 1988, after a long search for his mother, he went to London, Berlin and Amsterdam. Each time he was expelled by the authorities because he did not have the required papers.
In 1999 he received refugee status and a residence permit in France. He became well-known among airport workers in Roissy and became a symbol, having been the subject of many French and foreign television and radio reports before his story was made into cinemas.
In 2004, Tom Hanks starred in Steven Spielberg’s Passenger Building. After the film, Nasseri lived in a hostel in Paris.
