Christine Pascal (November 29, 1953 – August 30, 1996) was a French actress, writer and director.

Born in Lyon, RhĂŽne, Pascal made her film debut at 21 in Michel Mitrani's Les Guichet des Louvres (1974), and began an association with Bertrand Tavernier with her next film, L'Horloger de Saint Paul (1974). Other films with Tavernier include Que la fĂȘte commence (1975), for which she received a CĂ©sar nomination for Best Supporting Actress, The Judge and the Assassin (1976), Des enfants gatĂ©s (1977), which she co-scripted, and Round Midnight. Other film appearances include Black Thursday (1974), La Meilleure façon de marcher (1976), The Maids of Wilko (1979), Entre Nous (1983) and Le Grand Chemin (1987). She made her directorial debut with FĂ©licitĂ©, and also directed La Garce, Zanzibar, Le petit prince a dit (which won the Louis Delluc Prize) and AdultĂšre, mode d'emploi.

Christine Pascal had contemplated suicide at various times in her life, and the opening scene in the first film which she directed - Felicite - opened with a suicide scene. In 1984 when asked how she would like to die she replied, "En me suicidant, le moment venu." She proved to be true to her word when she threw herself from a window of a clinic in Garches in the suburbs of Paris ( source: Times newspaper obituary ).

While staying in a Paris psychiatric hospital, Pascal committed suicide.[1]
