Catherine Spaak (born 3 April 1945) is a French actress and singer.

Biography[edit]

Spaak was born at Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine (Ile-de-France).

She spent most of her career in Italy, where she became a teenage star. From age 15 to 18, Catherine Spaak was the lead actress in at least twelve movies and, as a singer, was regarded by some as the Italian equivalent of French chanteuse Françoise Hardy, some of whose songs she recorded in 1963. Notable appearances include classic Italian movies such as I dolci inganni (1960), La voglia matta (1961), The Easy Life (1962), The Girl from Parma (1963), The Empty Canvas (1963), L'armata Brancaleone (1965), Hotel (1967) with Rod Taylor, The Libertine (1969) and The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971). She starred in Take a Hard Ride with Jim Brown (1975). She later hosted several TV shows for RAI TV and published some books in Italian.

In 2011 she appeared in BBC TV's "mini-series" Zen.
