Aurore Clément (born October 12, 1945) is a French actress. She has performed in a number of motion pictures in both the French language and the English language as well as in television films and miniseries.


Early life

She was born in Soissons, Aisne. Following the death of her father, as a young girl she had to go to work to support her family. For a time she did modeling in Paris until being offered a role in film. Since her appearance in the Louis Malle film Lacombe Lucien (1974), she has usually been cast in secondary roles but has worked steadily, respected for her talent and dedication to her craft.



Film career

Clément has appeared in more than 80 films and is most often remembered as the character "Anne" in the Wim Wenders film Paris, Texas which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984.

Her first appearance in a US movie would have been in Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now 1979, but her scenes — a long sequence where Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) meets French former colonists — were eventually cut from the film and only restored in 2001 in the Redux version. She has also been cast in numerous high quality films made for television.

Theatre career

In France, Clément made her debuts on stage in 1988, with The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs, adapted from George Moore's short story, and won an acting prize from The French Association of Theatre critics. She has been seen in several plays, including Marguerite Duras' Les Eaux et Forêts and Alexandre Dumas fils' La Dame aux Camélias alongside Isabelle Adjani, for which she has been nominated for the Molieres (the equivalent of the American Tony's)

Personal life

Aurore Clément has been married since 1986, to Dean Tavoularis, an American motion picture production designer.
