Charlotte Valandrey (née Anne-Charlotte Pascal; born 29 November 1968 in Paris, France) is a French actress. After early success she was widely tipped for stardom, but her career took a more modest course until the release of her autobiography in 2005. Born into an affluent family, Valandrey grew up in Brittany in north-western France. From the age of six she lived in the small coastal town of Val-André, from which she took her professional name in 1985. Valandrey's debut film was Véra Belmont's 1985 political drama Rouge Baiser, in which she played Nadia. Her highly acclaimed performance as a young communist in 1950s Paris was rewarded with a Ours d'argent and the César award for "Most Promising Actress" the following year. She also won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 36th Berlin International Film Festival. Valandrey's autobiography, "L'Amour dans le sang" ("Love in the Blood"; published in 2005), revealed her HIV status and the effect it had on her career. She also received a heart transplant in August 2003. In March 2007, after selling over 280,000 copies of her book, Charlotte gave approval for its adaptation in the TV movie, L'Amour dans le sang.
