Danielle Darrieux Overview:

Legendary actress, Danielle Darrieux, was born Danielle Yvonne Marie Antoinette Darrieux on May 1, 1917 in Bordeaux, France. Darrieux died at the age of 100 on Oct 17, 2017 in Bois-le-Roi, Eure, France .


For six decades Danielle Darrieux played pretty well every kind of woman, with perhaps a slight preference for the experienced woman with something to teach the younger man. Made a star by the first version of Mayerling, she has made fewer international appearances than her contemporaries, but that was France's gain, and she remained beautiful into middle age.

Darrieux was never nominated for an Academy Award.
