Les Raisins de la Mort
Marie-Georges Pascal was born in Cambrai in northern France. She will later qualify her childhood as "very hard " and " very sad". Her parents, who dream to see her becoming concert artist, force her to pass every day of the long hours to work the piano. At the age of sixteen, she leaves her too rigid family and gets a job as model.
She made her debuts on screen in 1971 when she appeared in Jean-Claude Roy's French classic Les Petites Filles modèles, in which she played one of the lead roles alongside Jessica Dorn, Cathy Reghin, Michele Girardon and Bella Darvi.
From 1972 to early 1973 she performs six erotic films including Je suis frigide... pourquoi? with Sandra Julien, German film Hausfrauen Report international, Bananes mécaniques, with Anne Libert, Pauline Larrieu, Philippe Gasté and Patrice Valota, Quand Les Filles se Déchaînent, Les Infidèles and Les confidences érotiques d'un lit trop accueillant, with Olga Georges-Picot.
In 1973, she also turns in comedies, L'Historie Très Bonne et Très Joyeuse de Colinot Trousse-Chemise, with Brigitte Bardot, Gross Paris, and in a drama La Rage au poing, alongside Tony Gatlif.
But she really break though on TV screens in 1974 with the leading role in Le Dessous du ciel, playing a young woman passionate for parachute. Mixing adventure and romance, the series is a success and increase substantially her popularity in France. The series is received as well in germanic countries thanks to Pierre Brice's presence in the cast. Her next television credits include leading roles in drama series, Les Pilotes de courses, La Vie des autres and a part in an episode of the long-running crime series Les Cinq Dernières Minutes. Pascal has also starred in television films and mini-series like D'Artagnan Amoureux.
Out of France, she is best known for playing the lead role as Élisabeth in the 1978 Jean Rollin classic horror Les Raisins de la Mort, in which Rollin himself said she was very "moving" and that "she made her character's descent into madness extremely real". The same year, she also appears in Brigade Mondaine, an adaptation of a novel edited by Gérard de Villiers with a soundtrack by Marc Cerrone. During the 1980s she appeared in two films, Cauchemar and Flics de choc with Mylène Demongeot, which was her final film.
Robert Hossein gave her the opportunity to make her debuts on stage in 1970 in an adaptation of Georges Simenon's novel La Neige était sale. In 1972, she appeared in the musical Madame Pauline .She also played the role of Bubble in Marc Camoletti's Duos sur canapé (1974), Ismene in Jean Anouilh's Antigone (1975-1976), Jeanie in Henry Miller's Just wild about Harry (1977), Helene in Eugène Labiche's The Italian Straw Hat (1980), Estelle Rigault in Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit (1982) and Germaine Lechat in Octave Mirbeau's Business is business (1984-1985).
