Marc Pilcher, the Emmy Award-winning hair and makeup designer for “Bridgerton,” has died of COVID-19, his agency Curtis Brown confirmed.
Pilcher — who was double vaccinated and had no underlying health conditions — took and tested negative on multiple COVID-19 tests to make the trip across the Atlantic and back again for the ceremony. Not long after his return, he became ill and his condition deteriorated over the weekend. He died on Sunday.
They didn’t mention which covid vaccine he had.

As well as “Bridgerton,” Pilcher was known for his work across a variety of West End shows, television programs and films. In 2018 he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on “Mary Queen of Scots” with Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie.
He most recently completed work on Matthew Vaughn’s “The King’s Man.”
Pilcher leaves behind his family, friends and his beloved cockapoo Yuri.
