Maria Schneider (Above), the French actress who was Marlon Brando’s young co-star in the steamy 1972 film "Last Tango in Paris," has died, her talent agency said. She was 58.
A representative of the Act 1 agency said Schneider died in Paris on Thursday "following a long illness," but declined to provide details.
Schneider was 19 when she starred opposite Marlon Brando in Bernardo Bertolucci’s racy "Last Tango in Paris." In it, she played a young Parisian woman who takes up with a middle-aged American businessman, played by Brando.
