Early life and family[edit] Rampling was born in Sturmer, Essex, the daughter of Isabel Anne (née Gurteen; 1918–2001), a painter, and Godfrey Rampling

(1909–2009), an Olympic gold medalist and British Army

officer.[8] She spent most of her childhood in Gibraltar, France, and Spain, before she returned to the UK in 1964.[9] She attended Académie Jeanne d'Arc in Versailles and St. Hilda's School, a boarding school in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England. She had one sister, Sarah, who committed suicide in 1966, aged 23. She and Sarah had had a close relationship, and they had performed in a cabaret act together during their teenage years.[10][11][12][13] Career[edit] 1960s: Modelling career, starting as actress[edit] She began her career as a model and first appeared in a Cadbury advertisement. She was noticed by a casting agent while walking down a street in London. Her first screen appearance, which was uncredited, was as a water skier in Richard Lester's film The Knack ...and How to Get It. She also appeared as an extra in the Beatles
Beatles
film A Hard Day's Night (1964).[14] In 1965, she was cast in the role of Meredith in the film Georgy Girl

and was given a role by John Boulting in the comedy Rotten to the Core. In 1967, she starred opposite Yul Brynner

(Sequestro di persona) (1968), directed by Gianfranco Mingozzi.[15] On television, Rampling played the gunfighter Hana Wilde in "The Superlative Seven," a 1967 episode of The Avengers.[16] In 1969, she starred opposite Sam Waterston
Sam Waterston
in the romance-drama Three, and in 1972, she starred opposite Robert Blake in the drama Corky and portrayed Anne Boleyn
Anne Boleyn
in the costume drama Henry VIII and His Six Wives. After this, her acting career blossomed in both English and French cinema. Despite an early flurry of success, she told The Independent: "We weren't happy. It was a nightmare, breaking the rules and all that. Everyone seemed to be having fun, but they were taking so many drugs they wouldn't know it anyway."[17]

Rampling at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival

Rampling has performed controversial roles. In 1969, in Luchino Visconti's The Damned (La Caduta degli dei), she played a young wife sent to a Nazi concentration camp. Critics praised her performance, and it cast her in a whole new image: mysterious, sensitive, and ultimately tragic. "The Look," as her co-star Dirk Bogarde
Dirk Bogarde
called it, became her trademark.[18] 1970-Early 1980s: Transition to adult roles, Hollywood and Italian cinema[edit] She appeared in the cult classic Vanishing Point, in a scene deleted from the U.S. theatrical release (included in the U.K. release). Lead actor Barry Newman
Barry Newman
remarked that the scene was of aid in the allegorical lilt of the film. In 1974's The Night Porter, in which she again appears alongside Dirk Bogarde, she plays a former concentration camp inmate who, after World War II, reunites with a former camp guard (Bogarde) with whom she had had an ambiguous relationship. Their relationship resumes, and she becomes his mistress and torture toy once again. In Max mon amour, she played a woman who fell in love with a chimpanzee. In 1974, she posed nude for Playboy.[19] In 1976 she co-presented for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration Award with Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins
at the 48th Academy Awards.[20] In 1974, Rampling starred in John Boorman's science-fiction film Zardoz

opposite Sean Connery. She also starred with Peter O'Toole

television adaptation of Great Expectations (1998), and starred in the film adaptation of The Cherry Orchard (1999), directed by Michael Cacoyannis.[citation needed]. In 1997, she was a member of jury at the 54th Venice International Film Festival. The 2000s[edit]

Rampling credits François Ozon
François Ozon
with drawing her back to film in the 2000s, a period when she came to terms with the death of her elder sister Sarah who, after giving birth prematurely in 1966, committed suicide at 23. "I thought that after such a long time of not letting her be with me," she told The Guardian, "I would like to bring her back into my life."[18] The character she played in Ozon's Swimming Pool (2003), Sarah Morton, was named in her sister's honour. For most of Rampling's life, she would say only that her sister had died of a brain haemorrhage; when she and her father heard the news, they agreed they would never let her mother know the truth. They kept their secret until Rampling's mother died in 2001.[18] Rampling appeared in Tony Scott's Spy Game
Spy Game
(2001), and she earned César Award
César Award
nominations for Under the Sand

(2000), Swimming Pool (2003), and Lemming (2005). At 59, she appeared in Laurent Cantet's Heading South

to get the sexual attention she does not get at home.[citation needed] On her choice of roles, Rampling said, "I generally don't make films to entertain people. I choose the parts that challenge me to break through my own barriers. A need to devour, punish, humiliate or surrender seems to be a primal part of human nature, and it's certainly a big part of sex. To discover what normal means, you have to surf a tide of weirdness."[citation needed] The actress has continued to work in sexually provocative films, such as Basic Instinct 2
Basic Instinct 2
(2006). In 2008, she portrayed Countess Spencer, the mother of Keira Knightley's title character, in The Duchess and played the High Priestess in post-apocalyptic thriller Babylon A.D.. In 2002, she recorded an album titled Comme Une Femme, or As A Woman. It is in both French and English, and includes passages that are spoken word as well as selections which Rampling sang.[citation needed]. In February 2006, Rampling was named as the jury president at the 56th Berlin International Film Festival. She has been seen on the covers of Vogue, Interview, and Elle Magazines and CRUSHfanzine. In 2009, she posed nude in front of the Mona Lisa

for Juergen Teller.[21] In 2009, Rampling appeared in Todd Solondz's Life During Wartime. 2010s[edit] In 2010, she completed filming Cleanskin, a terrorist thriller, and played Miss Emily in the dystopian romantic fantasy Never Let Me Go.[22][23] She also appeared as Helena in the dance drama StreetDance 3D and the nun Mary in The Mill and the Cross

and Rutger Hauer. In 2011, she appeared in Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. For her role in the 2012 miniseries Restless, Rampling was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 2013, she appeared as Dr. Evelyn Vogel in the final season of Dexter.[24] Rampling also appeared as Alice in the drama Jeune et Jolie

In 2016, Rampling accused those boycotting that year's Academy Awards ceremony of hostility towards Caucasians.[33] Her comments were called "offensive, outrageous and ignorant" by Chelsea Clinton, while they were defended by Clint Eastwood. Rampling later apologised for her comments and expressed regret that her statements were misinterpreted.[34][35] That same year, Rampling backed children's fairytales app, GivingTales in aid of UNICEF together with Roger Moore, Stephen Fry, Ewan McGregor, Joan Collins, Joanna Lumley, Michael Caine, David Walliams, Paul McKenna

and Michael Ball.[36] In 2017, Rampling co-starred as Veronica Ford with Jim Broadbent

in Euphoria, directed by Lisa Langseth.[43] Personal life[edit] In 1972, Rampling married New Zealand actor and publicist Bryan Southcombe and had a son, Barnaby, who became a television director as an adult, before divorcing in 1976. The couple was widely reported to have been living in a ménage à trois with a male model, Randall Laurence,[17] and in 1974, Rampling was quoted by the syndicated columnist Earl Wilson as saying: "There are so many misunderstandings in life. I once caused a scandal by saying I lived with two men [...] I didn't mean it in a sexual sense [...] We were just like any people sharing a flat."[44] In 1978, Rampling married French composer Jean-Michel Jarre
Jean-Michel Jarre
and had a second son, David Jarre, who eventually became a musician and singer in his own right. She raised her stepdaughter Émilie Jarre, who grew up to become a fashion designer. The marriage was publicly dissolved in 1997, when Rampling learned from tabloid newspaper stories about Jarre's affairs with other women and had a nervous breakdown. She was engaged to Jean-Noël Tassez, a French journalist and businessman, from 1998 until his death in 2015.[45] Rampling lives in Paris.[17][46] She also suffered from depression.[47] Screen and stage[edit] Main article: Charlotte Rampling
