The lovely star of “Antoine and Colette” is dead at 66. RIP, Marie-France Pisier.

Her husband, Thierry Funck-Brentano, discovered her body in the swimming pool of their home, Agence France-Presse, the French news agency, reported. The cause of death was not known, but foul play is not suspected, the investigating magistrate in Toulon said.

Ms. Pisier, a stunning beauty with refined features, caught Truffaut’s eye when, at the age of 17, she successfully auditioned for the part of Colette Tazzi, the spirited but maddeningly elusive love object of Jean-Pierre Léaud’s Antoine Doinel in “Antoine and Colette.” The film, 32 minutes long, was Truffaut’s contribution to the anthology film “Love at 20.”

The Guardian

Pisier was an outspoken defender of women's rights and legal abortion. She overcame breast cancer in the 1990s.
