French actress seen in international films.
She was the illegitimate daughter of actor Daniel Gélin, who she only ever met three times, and who, because he was married when she was born, refused to recognize her as his child until she was in her teens.
Schneider made a stage debut at 15 and began playing second leads in films in 1971. She was chosen from a hundred contestants for the plum role in "Last Tango in Paris." Along with Bertolucci and Brando, she was indicted by an Italian court on charges of obscenity for the film.
She died on 3 February 2011 in Paris after a long, unspecified illness.
