Kindred: The Embraced - Personal life - Netflix

During his filming of Young Catherine, tragedy struck his family. His older brother was killed in an aircraft accident, a mid-air collision between two small planes. The pilots and passengers of both planes were killed. An experienced acrobatics pilot, Joe Frankel flew his plane as far from populated areas as he could, but he did not survive the eventual impact. Mark, just three years younger than his brother, lost his only sibling. Together, they had been risk-takers, performing aerial stunts and skydiving. Their father had been a pilot in the Royal Air Force. Frankel himself was an avid motorcyclist and was especially proud of his yellow Harley Davidson, one of only six in the world. It was on that bike that Mark Frankel died in an accident on 24 September 1996. He had married French advertising account executive Caroline Besson in 1991, and together they had two children, Fabien, and the second, Max, born after his death. Fabien Frankel (born 1994) is also an actor.
