(?-1998; broken engagement)
Béatrice Dalle (born 19 December 1964) is a French actress.
She was working as a model when she met filmmaker Jean-Jacques Beineix. Beineix cast her in the lead role in the 1986 film 37°2 le matin (later released in the United Kingdom and United States under the title Betty Blue). She went on to appear in a series of major roles in French films, including the 1989 film Chimère, which was entered into the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.
She is seen in a feature role in the 1991 music video "Move To Memphis" by Norwegian band a-ha.
In 2001, Dalle appeared in the controversial film, Trouble Every Day, in which she played a vampire. More recently, she starred in À l'intérieur, in which she played a cruel psychopath stalking a pregnant woman.
Dalle was arrested in 1991 for stealing jewelry in Paris; she received a fine for assaulting a traffic warden in 1998; she was also arrested in Miami in 1999 for cocaine possession. In 2001, while running the catwalk for the fashion designer Marco Coretti's collection in Rome, she destroyed an haute couture dress worth twelve thousand euros.
In January, 2005, while making a film about prison life in Brest, Dalle met Guenaël Meziani, who was serving a 12-year prison sentence for assaulting and raping his ex-girlfriend. She married him after 24 one-hour visits, and spoke on his behalf at hearings for his early release. According to the newspaper Le Parisien, in May, 2009 just weeks after he was given a conditional release for good behavior, police were called to her flat in the Marais district of Paris because of a violent dispute in which Meziani allegedly threatened to kill her.
