The famous actress Mylène Demongeot died after a long illness at the age of 87

FREE MIDI INFO – The actress is known for her roles in “Fantomas” or even “Camping” and she died at the age of 87. It was Henry-Jean Servat, writer, journalist and friend of the artist, who announced his disappearance.

Her name was Marie-Hélène Demongeot, but she was known by her stage name Mylène.

The one who, given her blondness, had been compared to her friend Brigitte Bardot at the beginning of her career, knew how to make her place in French cinema.

She had started her career as a model.

From model to actress and producer

It was at the age of 17 that she appeared in her first film in 1953, “Les Enfants de l’amour”.

But it is thanks to her role as Abigail in “Les Sorcieres de Salem” with Yves Montand and Simone Signoret that she will experience success.

In particular, she will play in an adaptation of “Bonjour Tristesse” by Françoise Sagan by Otto Preminger and in the series “Fantomas”.

She then went into production while continuing her acting career. Recently, we will remember his role in “Camping”.

“She was a magnificent artist. She had spent her youth in Montpellier”

It is with infinite sadness that Henry-Jean Servat announced to us the news of his death, this Thursday, December 1st.

“She was a magnificent artist. She had spent her youth in Montpellier, she had married in the church of Palavas-les-Flots, she adored the region. She was committed to the protection of animals. She was a friend for over 40 years. She died after a long illness.”

I am devastated to share the flight to heaven today of Mylène Demongeot, such a beloved and beautiful artist, a magnificent actress, a dear friend of over 40 years and a very active activist in the defense of animals. Rest in peace. I love you forever.
