Personal life

Geraldine Chaplin was born in Santa Monica, California, the first child of actor/director Charlie Chaplin and Oona O'Neill (daughter of playwright Eugene O'Neill and author Agnes Boulton). Chaplin was educated at a boarding school in Switzerland where she became fluent in French & Spanish, the former being standard in any Swiss school and the latter being demonstrated in some of her performances in films by the Spanish director Carlos Saura, her former husband, with whom she had a twelve-year relationship. She married a long time companion, Chilean movie theater operator Patricio Castilla, in 2006 and has two children, Shane (b. 1974, by Saura) and Oona (b. 1986, by Castilla). From time to time, she makes Miami, Florida her home, where she has a house by the beach.Fact|date=January 2008


When Chaplin was eight years old, she appeared uncredited in her father's film "Limelight". When her dream of becoming a ballet dancer ended, she followed her father into the acting profession. David Lean chose her to play Tonya, the main character's devoted wife in his film "Doctor Zhivago" (1965). During the 1970s she appeared in several of Robert Altman's films. She also starred in nine movies directed by Carlos Saura, including "Cría cuervos" (1976), "Elisa, vida mía" (1977), and "Mama Turns a Hundred" (1979). She played the role of her grandmother Hannah Chaplin in the biographical film about her father, "Chaplin".
