About Špela Rozin

Špela Rozin: The Slovene Actress Who Conquered the World

Špela Rozin was born on January 31, 1943, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. From a young age, she showed a natural talent for acting, and by the time she was a teenager, she was already performing in local theater productions.

In the early 1960s, Rozin moved to Paris to study acting at the prestigious Conservatoire de Paris. It was there that she met her future husband, the French actor Jean-Pierre Léaud, who was best known for his work with director François Truffaut.

Rozin's big break came in 1967 when she was cast in the lead role of the Italian film "La Cina è vicina" (China Is Near), directed by Marco Bellocchio. The film was a critical and commercial success, and Rozin's performance was widely praised.

Over the next few years, Rozin appeared in a number of European films, including "La Maman et la Putain" (The Mother and the Whore), which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973.

In the late 1970s, Rozin moved to the United States and began working in Hollywood. She appeared in a number of films, including "The Big Red One" (1980) and "The Hunger" (1983), but it was her role in the 1985 film "Out of Africa" that brought her international fame. Rozin played the role of Karen Blixen's friend and confidante, Farah, and her performance earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Despite her success in Hollywood, Rozin continued to work in Europe, appearing in films such as "La Vie en Rose" (1997) and "The Son's Room" (2001), which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Throughout her career, Rozin has been known for her intense and emotional performances, as well as her dedication to her craft. She has been praised for her ability to bring depth and complexity to her characters, and for her willingness to take on challenging and controversial roles.

Today, at the age of 78, Rozin continues to work in film and theater, and she remains one of Slovenia's most beloved and respected actresses.
