Christine Boisson (born 8 April 1956 in Salon-de-Provence, Bouches-du-Rhône) is a French actress.

Biography[edit]

After she registered in a model agency, Just Jaeckin liked her photo, and she got a part in the film Emmanuelle starring Sylvia Kristel, in which she played a lollipop-sucking teenager who masturbates over a picture of Paul Newman. Then she got some more film roles, but she also continued to study acting.

In 1977 she made her stage debut in Chekhov's The Seagull directed by Bruno Bayen.

In 1984, she received the Prix Romy Schneider (most promising actress awards) for Rue Barbare.

In 2005, she was starring in the stage play Viol by Botho Strauß (based on Titus Andronicus), directed by Luc Bondy.

In 2010 it was widely reported that she had attempted suicide after she climbed over the parapet of her 5th floor apartment and was stopped by firefighters. In a later interview she said she had done this after an argument with her partner at the time as an act of psychological manipulation, an action she was not proud of. She also described growing up with an abusive mother who constantly reminded her that she had almost died giving birth to her, and sexually abused both her and her brother.[1]
