Gone But Not Forgotten


ANNIE GIRARDOT
(25 October 1931 – 28 February 2011)

She began performing in 1955, making her film debut in Treize à table. Girardot won the Prix Suzanne Bianchetti in 1956, and in 1977 won the César Award for Best Actress portraying the title character in Docteur Françoise Gailland.
In 2002, she was awarded the César Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Piano Teacher. She collaborated with director Michael Haneke again, in the 2005 film Caché.
Another of her best known roles was as Nadia the prostitute in Luchino Visconti's epic Rocco e i suoi fratelli (Rocco and His Brothers, 1960). Nadia's beauty drives a wedge between Rocco and his brother Simone (Renato Salvatori), who eventually rapes her. In contrast to their violent on-camera relationship, Girardot and Salvatori married in 1962. They had a daughter, Giulia, and later separated but never divorced.
The 21 September 2006 issue of Paris Match magazine revealed that Girardot was suffering from Alzheimer's disease. On 28 February 2011, Girardot died in a hospital in Paris, aged 79. She was interred at Pere-Lachaise cemetery


Actriz de teatro, televisión y cine de larga carrera y multipremiada - ganó dos veces el Premio César y el Premio Molière -, se consagró en 1960 como Nadia en Rocco y sus hermanos de Luchino Visconti que también la dirigió en teatro junto a Jean Marais en la pieza de William Gibson "Two for the Seesaw".
Entre 1962 y 1965 estuvo casada con el actor Renato Salvatori con quien tuvo su hija Giulia (Roma, 1962).2 Entre 1980 y 1993, vivió con Bob Decout, un músico de rock.3
Murió en 2011, después de una larga batalla contra el mal de Alzheimer, enfermedad de la que hizo una película Ainsi va la vie en 2008. Había publicado su autobiografía en 1989, Vivre d'aimer.
