From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Jacqueline Bisset (born September 13, 1944) is a British actress, born in Weybridge, Surrey, England.
Her French mother taught her to speak the language fluently, which has led many to erroneously believe she was born in France. When Bisset was a teenager, her mother was diagnosed with disseminating sclerosis.
After her parents divorced, she moved in to help her mother. She had taken ballet lessons as a young child, and now began taking acting lessons, and fashion modelling to pay for them.
In 1968, Mia Farrow, who was having personal problems, dropped out of a movie named The Detective (1968), and her job was given to Bisset instead. She was cast opposite Steve McQueen in "Bullitt in 1968.
In 1973, she appeared in Francois Truffaut's movie Day for Night, where she earned the respect of European critics and moviegoers as a serious actress.
In 1977, Bisset made great strides towards becoming a better known entertainer in America with her movie The Deep (1977), co-starring Robert Shaw, where her appearance swimming underwater wearing only a T-shirt made many to credit her with popularizing the wet T-shirt contest. At the time, Newsweek magazine declared her to be "the most beautiful film actress of all time."
Soon thereafter she played in the movies Rich and Famous (1981) with Candice Bergen, and Under The Volcano (1982) with Albert Finney, which was made in 1984 and gave her a Golden Globe award nomination. In 1978 she had already earned her first nomination for Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?. In 1996, she was nominated for a Cesar Award, France's version of the Oscars, for her role in La cйrйmonie.
During her career, Bisset has worked with such legendary directors as Franзois Truffaut, John Huston, George Cukor and Roman Polanski, among others. Several of her movies are French or Italian productions.
Bisset has also appeared in many made-for-TV movies, especially during the last 10 years, some of which have been quite successful. One of her later TV movies, released in 2003, was America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story, in which she portrayed Jacqueline Kennedy.
