Jacqueline Bisset Biography

Jacqueline Bisset has been an international film star since the late 1960s. She was first noted as a stunning on-screen beauty, but over time has become known as a fine actress respected by fans and critics alike.Her somewhat French-sounding name has led many to assume that she is from France, but she was brought up in England and had to study to learn French. Her mother was French and was an attorney before being married; her father was a doctor. As a child Jacqueline studied ballet. During her teenage years her father left the family when her mother was diagnosed with disseminating sclerosis; Jacqueline worked as a model to support her ailing mother, an experience she has said she considered character-strengthening. Her parents eventually divorced, though Jacqueline would remain very close to her father until his death. She took an early interest in film, and her modeling career helped pay for acting lessons.Jacqueline was first seen as an extra in The Knack... and How to Get It (1965), and made her "official" cinema debut in Roman Polanski's psychological thriller Cul-de-sac (1966). In 1967, following a small role in Stanley Donen's Two for the Road (1967) and an appearance as Miss Goodthighs in the popular James Bond spoof Casino Royale (1967), she had her first leading role in the otherwise unmemorable The Cape Town Affair (1967). Her career got a boost in 1968 when Mia Farrow unexpectedly dropped out of the shooting of The Detective (1968); Farrow's marriage to co-star Frank Sinatra was on the rocks, and the role was given to Jacqueline. That same year, she received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in The Sweet Ride (1968), and played Steve McQueen's girlfriend in the box office smash Bullitt (1968). Jacqueline was featured in the ensemble cast of the trendy "disaster film" Airport (1970), where she played a pregnant stewardess carrying Dean Martin's love child. In the early-to-mid 1970s, she starred in such films as The Mephisto Waltz (1971), The Thief Who Came to Dinner (1973), and The Spiral Staircase (1975), which were all good but didn't catch fire at the box office. She also starred in several European films, most notably François Truffaut's critically acclaimed Day for Night (1973). In 1977, Jacqueline received a large amount of renewed attention for her appearance in The Deep (1977), with her underwater swimming scenes inspiring the wet T-shirt craze. The following year, she received a second Golden Globe nomination for the comedy Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? (1978), and acted with Anthony Quinn in The Greek Tycoon (1978). In 1981 she co-produced and starred in George Cukor's final film, Rich and Famous (1981), which was a flop. On the other hand, she scored a minor hit with the comedy Class (1983), playing Rob Lowe's sexy mother who seduces her son's best friend. Jacqueline received a third Golden Globe nomination in 1984 for her role as Albert Finney's wife in John Huston's Under the Volcano (1984), but her career cooled down shortly thereafter. Making the transition from leading lady to character actress, she took roles in numerous made-for-TV and independent films during the 1990s and 2000s. She was nominated for a César award, the French equivalent of the Oscar, as best supporting actress for La cérémonie (1995), and received an Emmy nomination for her role in the miniseries Joan of Arc (1999) (TV). She was also very good in the Biblical epics Jesus (1999) (TV) and In the Beginning (2000) (TV), playing Mary of Nazareth and Sarah, wife of Abraham, respectively. On the big screen, she played Keira Knightley's mother in Tony Scott's action film Domino (2005). In 2006 Jacqueline had a juicy recurring role as a ruthless extortionist on "Nip/Tuck" (2003) during its fourth season. More recently, she gave a delightful performance in the uplifting TV movie An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving (2008) (TV).Jacqueline has never married, but has been involved in several long-term romantic relationships. She continues to work consistently and frequently participates in film festivals and award ceremonies around the world.
