Early life[edit] Morgan was born Simone Renée Roussel[2] in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine, a wealthy suburb of Paris.[3][4] She grew up in Dieppe, Seine-Maritime, France.[3][4] Career[edit] Morgan left home at the age of 15 for Paris
determined to become an actress.[3][5] She took acting lessons from René Simon while serving as an extra in several films to pay for her drama classes.[3] It was then that she took the stage name "Michèle Morgan".[3] She argued that she did not have the body type of a Simone, and "Morgan" sounded more Hollywood-friendly.[3] Morgan was first noticed by director Marc Allégret, who offered her a major role in the film Gribouille (1937), opposite Raimu.[3] Then came Le Quai des brumes

Upon the invasion of France in 1940 by the Germans, Morgan left for the United States and Hollywood where she was contracted to RKO Pictures in 1941.[3] Her career there proved rather disappointing, apart from Joan of Paris
(1942) opposite Paul Henreid, and Higher and Higher (1943) opposite Frank Sinatra.[4] She was tested and strongly considered for the female lead in Casablanca but RKO
would not release her for the amount of money that Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
offered.[6] Morgan did work for Warners however in Passage to Marseille

She married French actor Henri Vidal (1919–1959) in 1950. She remained with him until his death in 1959. She then lived with film director and actor/writer Gérard Oury
