Jean Seberg was an actress from the 1950s to the 1970s. Her career started in as promising a way as any actress ever! Otto Preminger held a massive worldwide search for the star of his Saint Joan, and Seberg was chosen from 18,000 entrants! She made an even greater mark in Jean-Luc Godard's A Bout De Souffle (Breathless). She seemed to have unlimited potential at that time, and over the next decade, she starred in Lilith, opposite Warren Beatty, as a young woman suffering from schizophrenia, and she turned down many of the more memorable young female parts of that time, including in The Graduate. But she suffered from depression, and she became involved with the Black Panthers. Seberg also married the much older Romain Gary, and became pregnant by another man. She gave birth, but the child died, and she blamed herself, and tried to commit suicide many times, and finally succeeded in 1979 (although some think that she was actually murdered). She was 40 years old.
