Actress. She was born in Paris, France, on January 21, 1962, to French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant and his wife, French film director Nadine Trintignant. Between 1967 and 2003, she appeared in over 57 films, several television series, and several specials. In 1967 she made her debut, opposite her father in the film, "My Love, My Love" at the age of 4. The film was directed by her mother. Trintignant's other film roles include "Betty" (1992), "Harrison's Flowers" (2000), Total Kheops" (2003), "Lost Seaman" (2003), and "Janis Et Joplin" (2003), in which she played the role of rock singer Janis Joplin. She also played in the television shows, "Sueres Froides" in 1988, and "Madame Le Juge" in 1977. On July 26, 2003, she sustained massive head injuries at her hotel room in Vilnius, Lithuania, after a severe beating by her boyfriend, Bertrand Cantat, lead singer of the French rock group, 'Noir Desir.' After the police arrived, she was taken to the hospital, along with Cantat who was treated for alcohol poisoning, a suspected overdose, and what appeared to be cuts and bruises on his hands. The actress underwent two operations to relieve the pressure on her brain, but after little success she was sent home to a hospital in Neuilly-Sur-Seine, France. Trintignant remained in a coma and on August 1, 2003, she passed away. Among those who sent out condolences to her family was French President Jacques Chirac.
