She was born Gisèle Marie Madeleine Tallone at Cannes in France.[2] Her first movie role was in 1942's L'Arlésienne.

For six years, she was involved in a relationship with Prince Rainier, and lived together in a villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.[2] Princess Antoinette, Baroness of Massy, Rainier's sister, seeking to obtain the throne of Monaco for her own son, spread malicious rumors that Pascal was incapable of bearing children. A contemplated marriage was called off when a medical examination reported that she was infertile.[2]

Pascal subsequently married actor Raymond Pellegrin on 8 October 1955 and had a daughter,[2] Pascale Pellegrin, on 12 September 1962.
