Aurore Clément

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. She was born Marie-Thérèse Aurore Louise Clément 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. 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 U.S. 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 films made for television.
