Biography by Hal Erickson

Canadian leading lady Alexandra Stewart studied acting in Paris, where she launched her film career in 1958's Les Monards. An intriguing combination of high intelligence and earthy sensuality, Alexandra quickly became a favorite amongst the New Wave directors of the 1960s. She may well be the only actress who can boast of having been directed by Francois Truffaut (The Bride Wore Black, Day for Night), Roger Vadim (Les Liaisons Dangereuse) and Otto Preminger (Exodus), Arthur Penn (Mickey One) and Louis Malle (Black Moon), by whom she had a daughter, Justine. On television, Alexandra Stewart was seen in the miniseries Mistral's Daughter (1984) and Sins (1986).
