Personal Quote:

It is vital to be photogenic from head to foot. After that you are allowed to display some measure of talent.


Chiefly famous for her work under the direction of Louis Feuillade: particularly, as Diana Monti in Judex (1916), and as Irma Vep (anagram for 'Vampire') in the "Les Vampires" series. Her mystique was accentuated by large, dark eyes and a habit of wearing a black leotard, hood and tights while on the set. See more »
