St. Petersburg, Russia
Mary Marquet studied acting at the Conservatoire and was encouraged by Sarah Bernhardt to become an actress. She made her stage debut in "La cathédrale" by the dramatist Eugène Morand. Her real triumph soon followed with "L'aiglon" by Edmond Rostand. She joined the Comédie Française in 1923 and was one of its most revered actress for over twenty years before being fired. In 1944, she was arrested and sent to Fresne prison, near Paris: she was accused of collaborating with the Germans during the war as well as being instrumental to her son's arrest by the Gestapo.
