Bernadette Lafont, 74, Actress Who Helped Launch French New Wave
She starred in Truffaut's first professional film (the short The Mischief-Makers) and arguably the first Nouvelle Vague feature, Chabrol's Le Beau Serge, and she went on to perform in numerous films by those directors and others. "[Her] fresh look and performance style crystallised the movement's ideological and cinematic ambitions." The Guardian (UK) 07/26/13
