Born in Tunisia in 1938, Claudia Cardinale first attracted attention in 1957 after winning the ‘Most Beautiful Girl in Tunisia’ contest. Her prize was a trip to the Venice Film Festival, inspiring her to pursue a career in acting. Emerging in the wake of Sophia Loren’s international success, Claudia Cardinale was originally touted as Italy’s answer to Brigitte Bardot; while never attaining a measure of global stardom comparable to either performer, she nevertheless proved herself a highly capable actress, working with many of the most renowned film-makers in world cinema.

Claudia Cardinale (born 1938) is a survivor from the era when movie giants walked the earth – most of them alongside her. But where former co-stars like John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, Marcello Mastroianni and Brigitte Bardot are all retired or deceased, She has made over 135 films in the past 60 years, and still does two or three a year. Added to which, her part in classics like , The Leopard, Once Upon a Time in The West and Fitzcarraldo keep her busy on the festival and “lifetime achievement award” carousel. “I don’t want to stop!” she laughs. “This is fantastic, to continue to work. It’s important.” Why does she keep going? She laughs again. “I don’t know.” The Guardian.
