Tessa Charlotte Rampling , OBE (born February 5, 1946 in Sturmer , Braintree District , England ) is a British actress who has worked in numerous international film productions since the mid-1960s. She became famous through films such as Der Nachtportier , Zardoz , The Verdict , Swimming Pool and 45 Years .
Youth and career start
Born to Isabel Anne (née Gurteen), a painter, and the British officer and track and field athlete Godfrey Rampling , Charlotte Rampling attended prestigious schools in France and England before embarking on a career as a model .
However, she soon said goodbye to this career and took a year of lessons at the London drama school The Royal Court . In Richard Lester's sex comedy The Knack (The Knack) had in 1965 with a brief appearance as waterskiing runner her first contact with the film. A year later she took on her first major role as a roommate of Lynn Redgrave in the comedy Georgy Girl . The supporting role made her known beyond Great Britain and gave her other role offers. In 1967 she appeared as an art shooter Hanna Wilde in the episode Fly without (The Superlative Seven) of the television series With Umbrella, Charm and Melon .
Appearances in Italian films
In her home country, however, mostly superficial comedies were filmed in the late 1960s. The roles offered were therefore, according to Rampling, "dollybirds, and girls following plots, and girlfriend of the hero" (German: "Little dolls, girls who devise schemes and the hero's girlfriend"). In search of more exciting roles, she turned to Italian cinema and took on a supporting role in Luchino Visconti's controversial political drama The Damned .
Until the mid-1970s she worked in many Italian productions, including in 1974 in Liliana Cavani's The Night Porter , which triggered a major scandal because he had a sadomasochistic relationship between the former concentration camp guard ( Dirk Bogarde ) and his female prisoner (Rampling) portrays. The film was banned in Italy and sparked heated debates among European and US film critics.
However, her appearance in this film propelled her career forward and drew the attention of directors such as Woody Allen , Sidney Lumet and Alan Parker to her. Directed and alongside Allen, she took on the female lead in Stardust Memories in 1980 . Since she was offered complicated female roles from now on, she worked mostly in Europe in the 1980s.
France / marriage
In 1972 Rampling married her agent, the sculptor Bryan Southcombe , and settled in the south of France. In the same year, their son Barnaby Southcombe was born. In 1976 she met the electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre at a party . She left her husband the next day and married Jarre that year. The marriage was divorced in 1996. Rampling contributed the photos for Jarre's album Oxygène , and she also documented many of Jean-Michel Jarre's concerts. Together they have their son David Jarre (* 1977).
In 1999 she took over the short-term female lead in Michael Cacoyannis ' adaptation of the Chekhov classic The Cherry Orchard alongside Alan Bates , Katrin Cartlidge , Xander Berkeley , Gerard Butler and Michael Gough .
In 2000 she played the leading role in François Ozone's film drama Unter dem Sand , for which she received a nomination for the French César Film Prize and the European Film Prize for Best Actress. Her success made her known to a new audience and was the starting signal for her second career, which has continued since then.
For her services to the cultural relations between France and Great Britain, she was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire at the end of 2000 .
In 2002 she released an album called "comme une femme", on which she sings French and English songs penned by Michel Rivegauche and Jean-Pierre Stora . She is accompanied by the pianist Claude Rogen .
2003 saw the second collaboration with Ozon with the film Swimming Pool . Again she was nominated for a César and a European Film Award in the Best Actress category. This time she won the European award.
In the same year she started her theater career and appeared in the Paris Théâtre Édouard VII in the play "Petits Crimes Conjugaux". The following year she received excellent reviews in London for her performance in Pierre Marivaux 's play "The False Servant".
She also spent a week with the German photographer Juergen Teller in a Paris hotel with an excessive long-term performance . The resulting pictures were first exhibited in Vienna in the summer of 2004 under the title “Louis XV” and also published in a book.
At the 56th International Film Festival in Berlin from February 9th to 19th, 2006 she was jury president.
In 2011 a portrait film about Charlotte Rampling, The Look , made by the German director Angelina Maccarone was released . 2013 she played in the eighth season of Dexter psychiatrist Dr. Evelyn Vogel , who specializes in serial killers.
In 2015 she published her autobiography Qui je suis (Who I am) , which she wrote in French together with the writer Christophe Bataille .
