Cecile Aubry

Actress-writer

Born - 3 August 1928, Paris, France
Died - 19 July 2010

Piquant blonde French 'sex kitten'-style French actress, in looks a cross between Odile Versois and Brigitte Bardot. She had a very brief career as a star actress before opting for a career as a writer, mostly of children's fiction. After a starring debut at 21 in Manon (1949), an award-winning adaptation of Manon Lescaut, Aubry, born Anne-Jose Benard, went to Hollywood and starred in The Black Rose (1950). Marriage in the mid 1950s saw her film career grind to a halt. There were just a couple more thereafter- the last being L'espionne sera a Noumea in 1960. By then she had begun work on the Heidi-like adventures of Belle and Sebastian, about a boy and his dog living in the French Alps, which were quickly adapted into a long-running TV series. Aubry continued writing successfully until her death from lung cancer
