Capucine

Saint-Raphael
Departement du Var
Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France
Death: Mar. 17, 1990
Lausanne
District de Lausanne
Vaud, Switzerland

Actress, Fashion Model. More famous in Europe than America, yet she seduced John Wayne in "North to Alaska" and was the perfect comic foil as Peter Sellers' wife, Simone, in the classic "Pink Panther." Her beauty was undeniable and her comedic timing impeccable. She was genuine, whether her feet were tickled in "North to Alaska" or just were chilled when the champagne popped in bed with Clouseau. Her humor, grace and intelligence were tragically cut short by suicide. (bio by: Portia)
