Sylvia Kristel

Sylvia Kristel first came to international attention in the early 1970s with Emmanuelle (1974) for director Just Jaeckin. Then two more sequels followed in which she also starred. Included in her credits are a long list of European films including the film Julia (1974), in which she played the lead. In 1979, she came to Hollywood, appearing in The Concorde… Airport ’79 (1979) for producer Jennings Lang, who also featured her in the comedy film The Nude Bomb (1980). However, this was all a prelude to the most successful film in Kristel’s career — Private Lessons (1981) — in which she played the housekeeper who initiates 15-year-old Eric Brown to the wonders of sex.
