Capucine Facts
On a certain Wednesday in 1956, she realized she was bored. Having never been to America, she flew there on Friday. She modeled in New York for a while, and one night at the Manhattan restaurant le Pavilion she met star John Wayne and agent/producer Charles K. Feldman. Feldman signed her to a contract (she later moved in with him) and sent her to California to learn English. She made her English-speaking debut as Princess Carolyne in Song Without End (1960).

Born Germain Lefebvre, she took the stage name "Capucine" during her modeling days. The name--pronounced "Kap-oo-seen"--is French for the Nasturtium flower.

Nickname to close friends was "Cap".
