French Actress and Director. Darc, with her distinctive blonde bob hairstyle, was a fixture on French screens in the 1960s and 1970s, appearing in some 50 films, including Jean-Luc Godard's 'Weekend' and Yves Robert's 'The Tall Blond with One Black Shoe'. Often compared to Brigitte Bardot, her film career began in 1960 and she went on to make about 50 movies, including 'Dandelion By The Roots', 'The Great Spy Chase', 'La Grande Sauterelle', 'Jeff', 'Hard Boiled Ones', 'L’Homme Pressé', 'The Upper Hand', 'Les Bons Vivants' and 'Borsalino'. She took a break from film acting in the 1990s, working in several television series through the early 2000s. She also directed numerous documentaries for television. Darc, who suffered a series of strokes in September of 2016, had fallen into a coma three days before she died.
