Claude Gensac had begun his career in theatre, performing Corneille as well as Claudel or Giraudoux, but she remains associated in the collective memory with Louis de Funès, of whom she was the mischievous and unflappable wife at the cinema, an unforgettable couple dear to the hearts of millions of French people.

In recent years, on stage and on the screen, his liveliness and spiciness continued to do wonders.

Always curious to participate in new adventures, his recent interpretation in Lulu naked woman of Solveig Anspach showed us once again the extent of the sensitive talent of this great actress.

Audrey Azoulay, Minister of Culture and Communication, sends her condolences to her family and loved ones.
