Geraldine Leigh Chaplin (born July 31, 1944) is a Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-nominated actress.
Chaplin was born in Santa Monica, California, the first child of actor/director Charlie Chaplin and Oona O'Neill (who was the daughter of playwright Eugene O'Neill and author Agnes Boulton). Chaplin was educated at a boarding school in Switzerland where she learned French & Spanish to a fluent level, the former being standard in any Swiss school, with the latter being aptly demonstrated during her many performances for her Spanish director/ husband. Chaplin had a twelve year relationship with Spanish director Carlos Saura, and she has starred in nine of his movies, including Cría cuervos (1976), Elisa, vida mía (1977), and Mama Turns a Hundred (1979). She also appeared in several of Robert Altman's films during the 1970s. She married a long time companion, Chilean movie operator Patricio Castilla in 2006. She has two children, Shane (b. 1974, by Carlos) and Oona (b. 1986, by Patricio). From time to time, she makes Miami, Florida her home as she has a home by the beach.
