Maria Schneider, a truly great European Film Icon, has reportedly passed away at the tragically young age of just fifty-eight. Maria, whose performances in Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris and Antonioni's The Passenger are the stuff of legend, was one of my favorite actors and I am so saddened to hear this news this morning. I will be posting a full tribute in the upcoming days but I did want to take a moment to pass along my best to her friends and family.
She was truly unique and brought something extremely special to every film she appeared in throughout her iconic career.
