From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Marina Vlady (born Marina de Poliakoff-Baidaroff in Clichy, Hauts-de-Seine on 10 May 1938) is a French actress. She won the Best Actress Award at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival for The Conjugal Bed. 1955-1959 she was married to actor/director Robert Hossein. 1963-1966 she was married to Jean-Claude Brouillet, a French entrepreneur, owner of two airlines and member of French Resistance during the WW II. From 1969 until his death in 1980 she was married to Russian poet and songwriter Vladimir Vysotsky. Marina Vlady is the sister of actresses Odile Versois, Hélène Vallier and Olga Baïdar-Poliakoff; her father was a noted artist of Russian heritage. Like her siblings, she began acting as a child and for a while pursued a ballet career. Projecting a more sensual, alluring image than her sisters, she gained international renown. She was also starred by Jean-Luc Godard in the female lead in 2 ou 3 choses que je sais delle (1967). One of her few English roles was Kate Percy in Orson Welles Chimes at Midnight. Her TV credits include the 1983 mini series La Chambre des Dames.
