Biography

Geraldine Chaplin was born in Santa Monica, California, the fourth child of filmmaker Charlie Chaplin. She was the first of his eight children with his fourth and last wife, Oona O'Neill. Her paternal grandparents were English singers Charles Chaplin, Sr. and Hannah Harriet Pedlingham Hill and her maternal grandparents were Nobel- and Pulitzer-Prize-winning American playwright Eugene O'Neill and English-born writer Agnes Boulton. When Geraldine was eight years old, the family moved to Switzerland, where she attended boarding school and became fluent in French and Spanish. In 1967 she began what would become a twelve-year relationship with Carlos Saura, who directed her in several films between 1967 and 1979.

In 1978 the Chaplin family were the victims of a failed extortion plot by kidnappers who had stolen the body of Charlie Chaplin. Geraldine negotiated with the kidnappers, who threatened to shoot her infant son in the knees. In addition to her home in Miami, she also lives alternately between Madrid and Switzerland.
