19 December 1964
Brest, Finistère, France
(?-1998; broken engagement)
Béatrice Dalle (born 19 December 1964) is a French actress.
She was working as a model when she met filmmaker Jean-Jacques Beineix. Beineix cast her in the lead role in the 1986 film 37°2 le matin (later released in the United Kingdom and United States under the title Betty Blue). She went on to appear in a series of major roles in French films, including the 1989 film Chimère, which was entered into the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.
She is seen in a feature role in the 1991 music video "Move To Memphis" by Norwegian band a-ha.
In 2001, Dalle appeared in the controversial film, Trouble Every Day, in which she played a vampire. More recently, she starred in the 2007 film À l'intérieur, in which she played a cruel psychopath stalking a pregnant woman.
Dalle was arrested in 1991 for stealing jewelry in Paris; she received a fine for assaulting a traffic warden in 1998; she was also arrested in Miami in 1999 for cocaine possession. In 2001, while running[clarification needed] the catwalk for the fashion designer Marco Coretti's collection in Rome, she destroyed an haute couture dress worth €12,000.
In January, 2005, while making a film about prison life in Brest, Dalle met Guenaël Meziani, who was serving a 12-year prison sentence for assaulting and raping his ex-girlfriend. She married him after 24 one-hour visits, and spoke on his behalf at hearings for his early release. According to the newspaper Le Parisien, in May, 2009 just weeks after he was given a conditional release for good behavior, police were called to her flat in the Marais district of Paris because of a violent dispute in which Meziani allegedly threatened to kill her.
