Maria Schneider

27 March 1952 to 3 February 2011

An actress forever tied to one notorious film, Schneider starred opposite Marlon Brando in Bernardo Bertolucci’s sexually frank drama Last Tango In Paris (1972) when she was just 19 years old. The film overshadowed her whole screen career, though she did later star in The Passenger (1975) for Michelangelo Antonioni.
