After a small uncredited role in Jacques Becker's Rendezvous in July (1949), she had her first credited role in Richard Pottier's crime story Ouvert contre X (The Case Against X) (1952). Later the same year, she made her first Italian film, Gian Paolo Callegari's debut film as director: Eran trecento… (They Were 300). The following years, she appeared in a number of Italian films, including two of Carmine Gallone's films about famous composers, Puccini (1953) and Casa Ricordi (1954), and Mario Camerini's Vacanze a Ischia (1957), where she played opposite director Vittorio De Sica.

In 1957, she went to Germany to do her first German film for veteran director Rolf Hansen: Resurrection (based on Leo Tolstoy's novel Resurrection). On the set she met the German heartthrob Horst Buchholz, and the following year they married in London. Her last film, made shortly before she married, was Renato Castellani's prison film Nella città l'inferno, in which she played a female prisoner.

Later in life, after her children were grown up, she became a theatrical agent in Paris.[2]
