Actriz francesa. Hija ilegítima de una cortesana, fue animada a seguir la carrera de actriz por el duque de Morny, uno de los amantes de su madre. Después de participar breve tiempo en la Comédie-Française (1862–63), se unió al teatro Odéon (1866–72), donde actuó en Kean de Alexandre Dumas padre y Ruy Blas de Victor Hugo, con el cual encantó al público con su "voz dorada. Al regresar a la Comédie-Française (1872–80), protagonizó Fedra con gran éxito en París y Londres. Formó su propia compañía en 1880 y realizó una gira mundial con La dama de las camelias de Alexandre Dumas hijo, Adriana Lecouvreur de Eugène Scribe, cuatro obras escritas para ella de Victorien Sardou y El aguilucho de Edmond Rostand.

Es una de las figuras más célebres en la historia del teatro. Fue nombrada miembro de la Legión de Honor de Francia en 1914.
