Olga Georges-Picot (January 6, 1944 - June 19, 1997) was a French actress.

Born in Shanghai, China, she was the daughter of Guillaume Georges-Picot, the French Ambassador to China, and a Russian mother. Olga studied acting at the Actor’s Studio in Paris. Her acting career covered many diverse French and English films and television roles. She was featured in Playboy Magazine’s Sex in the Cinema and also on the front cover of the periodical Adam.

She played important roles in three classic mainstream films: Denise, the OAS mole, in The Day of the Jackal (1973); Countess Alexandrovna in Woody Allen’s Love and Death (1975); and Julie Anderson in Basil Dearden’s The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970). Her break-through role in the movies was as Catrine in the Alain Resnais’ film Je t'aime, je t'aime (1968). Earlier that year, she had appeared in the French television movie Thibaud the Crusader (1968).

Biographical information on her life and career leading to her apparent suicide on Thursday, 19 June 1997 is very limited and often incomplete. However, apparently Olga suffered from severe depression for unknown or unpublished reasons. Her bouts with depression apparently led to her suicide jump from the 5th floor of an apartment building that overlooked the river Seine, in Paris, France.
