Later, she was seen in Cutter's Trail (1970), The Slightly Pregnant Man (1973) and Antoine et Sebastien (1974), plus TV and theatre work until 1992. She married, divorced and remarried French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont, who died in 2001; the actress Tina Aumont is their daughter. Survived by three children and another sister, Patrizia, Pavan died in her sleep.
