Marie Trintignant (21 January 1962 – 1 August 2003) was a French actress.
She was born in Boulogne-Billancourt, the daughter of actor Jean-Louis Trintignant and his second wife, the French film director, producer, and screenwriter Nadine Marquand. She first appeared on screen aged four in her mother's film My Love, My Love. When Marie's baby sister Pauline died when Marie was eight, she became withdrawn and virtually stopped speaking. Her parents divorced in 1976. Throughout her early life she was afflicted by severe shyness, but despite this, by her mid-teens she decided to become an actress. She had such a strong affection for animals that she had first dreamt of becoming a veterinarian, but the acting heritage proved too strong. "Cats don't raise dogs", she said succinctly.
Trintignant was the mother of four sons: Roman with drummer Richard Kolinka, Paul with actor François Cluzet, Léon with Mathias Othnin-Girard and Jules with director Samuel Benchetrit...
