Brigitte Bardot famously said "I already know who's destined to take my place. There can be only one, and one alone. After BB comes CC, no?".
That CC is Claudia Cardinale. Born in Tunisia to Italian parents Claudia became a huge star after winning a beauty pageant which took her to Italy with a movie contract. Only Claudia didn't speak Italian having grown up speaking French. Her initial films were dubbed so as not to confuse the audience with her french accent.
She bacame a huge star when Fellini cast her as the perfect woman.
Claudia would go on to star with Bardot in the Western 'Once Upon a Time in the West'. The two remain friends to this day.
