Born: 6 May 1961
Birthplace: Paris, France
Best known as: The star of the film La Femme Nikita
Actress Anne Parillaud made it big in France and on the international art-house circuit, but still best known for playing the title role in La Femme Nikita (1990) -- a hit woman with high heels. The performance won her a César Award as Best Actress. That flush of international recognition led to a few more American films, including Map of the Human Heart (1992) and The Man in the Iron Mask (1998, starring Leonardo DiCaprio). She married electronic composer/musician Jean-Michel Jarre in 2005 and has collaborated with him on recordings and performances.
