Actress Orane Demazis is most famous for playing the ill-fated Fanny in Pagnol's Marseilles trilogy, Marius (1931), Fanny (1932), and Cesar (1936). Originally, she played Fanny on stage in Paris. Demazis was a longtime lover and companion to the French director/playwright Pagnol and appeared in many of his works. When the two parted, her career basically died--though she did occasionally land small roles in films through the late 1970s.
