Guest TV Roles
Geraldine Chaplin attended the Royal Ballet Academy in London. She was discovered by David Lean (I) when she was dancing in Paris, which is what led to her role in Doctor Zhivago (1965). She has two children, Shane and Oona.
- (1991) Festival tribute at the Créteil International Women's Film Festival, France.
- Sister of 'Christopher Chaplin (I)' (qv), Eugene Chaplin, 'Michael Chaplin (I)' (qv), 'Josephine Chaplin' (qv), and 'Victoria Chaplin' (qv).
- Son, Shane Saura Chaplin O'Neill (born 1974) with, 'Carlos Saura' (qv). Daughter, with longtime companion and now husband 'Patricio Castilla (I)' (qv), 'Oona Chaplin (II)' (qv) (born 1986).
- Has had long time relationship with Spanish director 'Carlos Saura' (qv)
- While filming her nude scened in _Welcome to L.A. (1976)_ (qv), one of the first experiments with digital photography involved positioning Chaplin's head on the body of a former Penthouse Pet. This became necessary to avoid embarrassing her father ('Charles Chaplin' (qv)) prior to his death. Although she was anxious to perform in the nude, director 'Alan Rudolph' (qv) feared the loss of financing if Lion's Gate Films and producer 'Robert Altman (I)' (qv) fell into disfavor with the World Famous Film Icon. Ultimately, 'Geraldine Chaplin' (qv) performed the scene in a nude body stocking and it took almost an entire month, using antiquated production equipment, to digitally transfer the nude body to the head of Chaplin. In turn, this put the production way over budget and as a result, 'John Wayne (I)' (qv) was replaced by 'Denver Pyle' (qv) as the father of 'Keith Carradine' (qv).
- Member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1982
- Sister-in-law of 'Jean-Baptiste Thiérrée' (qv).
- Great-granddaughter of 'James O'Neill (I)' (qv).
