Personal Quote:

"Angélique has been an important part of my life and everything that that ties me to her still moves me. Even 30 years later. Maybe she resembles me too much, or maybe I put too much passion into my interpretation. I don't know...and yet, I have played in many other movies but everywhere I go, people don't speak of my career, they only speak of Angélique." - on playing the cult 60s siren.


Entrancing, luscious-lipped French leading lady of continental films best remembered for turning heads as the fetching and seductive title role in the Angélique film series of the 60s
