Profile Bio Text
Marina Vlady was the forth, the youngest child in the family of noted Russian-born artist. All of her three older sisters became actresses: Odile Versois, Helene Vallier and Olga Baïdar-Poliakoff. She studied the art of ballet and dreamed to be one day a prima ballerina. But her acting sisters helped her to join the movie business. She played her first role at age of 11 in `The Summer Storm`, 1949. In the following four years she played some minor roles in several French and Italian comedies and melodramas. Her beauty and talent were noted. Marcello Mastroianni, Marlon Brando and Jean-Luc Godar were among her admirers. In 1955, at the young age of 17, Marina met and married director/writer/actor Robert Hossein, who featured her in a number of his films. In 1963 she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for `The Conjugal Bed`. She had two sons by Hossein, Igor and Pierre, but the marriage lasted only a few years, they divorced. From 1963 to 1966 she was married to an African airline owner and ex-pilot Jean-Claude Brouillet. They had a son Vladimir. The 1960s are the period of her brightest successes. She was invited by renowned Italian, French, Hungarian and Soviet film directors. In 1967 she was invited to Theatre-na-Taganka in Moscow where she met Soviet/Russian actor, poet and song-writer Vladimir Vysotsky. They married in 1971. Vysotsky died of heart attack provoked by chronic alcoholism in 1980. In 1981 she met her fourth husband Leon Swarzenberg, medic-oncologist. Leon passed away in 2003 from cancer. Actually Marina lives alone. Her sons live their own lifes: Igor breeds pearls on Hawai, Pierre is guitar-man, he lives in France, Vladimir breeds cattle in Paraguai.
In the evening of her life Marina became a talanted writer. By the present moment she published four books. Her `Vladimir or the aborted flight` became bestseller in Russia and was translated to many languages.
