Glacial, catlike, tallish platinum blonde French actress, perhaps the thinking man's Brigitte Bardot.

Many subsequent films included Please, Not Now! (1961), Virginie (1962), The Great Spy Chase (1964), Galia (1966), Casino Royale (1967), Week-End (1967), Monte Carlo or Bust! (1969), Borsalino (1970), Flic Story (1972), The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe (1972), Blood on the Streets (1974), The Pink Telephone (1975), L'Homme Presse (1977), Les Ringards (1978), Jamais avant le Mariage (1982), Reveillons Chez Bob (1984) and La Vie Dissolue de Gerard Floque, (1987), her last, although she continued to be seen in TV movies until 2011. Troubled by heart problems for most of her life, she died following a series of strokes.
