    Biography

    Jane Mallory Birkin was born on December 14, 1946 in London.
    A bit of a It-girl during the swinging sixties, she appeared in two of the defining movies of the era : Richard Lester's "The Knack ... And How To Get It" and Antonioni's "Blow Up".
    Then married to movie scores composer John Barry, she gave him a daughter, photographer Kate Barry (born on April 8, 1967 & dead on December 11, 2013).
    After splitting from John Barry, she relocated to France were she met Serge Gainsbourg, who was himself recovering from his own split from Brigitte Bardot.
    One of the most legendary and sexually charged artistic collaborations of the late 20th Century followed, with Jane playing the Beauty to Serge's Beast on records, most infamously "Je T'Aime... Moi Non-Plus" originaly written for and performed by Bardot but banned by Bardot herself, in movies and in French newspapers and tv shows.
    They together had a daughter, actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg (born on July 21, 1971).
    After separating from Serge at the tail end of the seventies, she lived with movie director Jacques Doillon with whom she had another daughter, model and actress Lou Doillon (born on September 4, 1982).
    Her estranged mentor kept on offering her songs to record all through the eighties until his death in 1991.
    Serge passed away, Jane concentrated on her acting career, branching out in theatre and even directing a couple movies.
    She came back to singing in the late nineties, first through various re-interpretations of Serge's back catalogue and then, in spite of her many declarations she couldn't even imagine singing someone else's words, with an album of collaborations with artists as diverse as Bryan Ferry, Caetano Veloso, Feist, Brian Molko, Manu Chao or Mickey 3D on 2004's Rendez-Vous, followed by further collaborations with Gonzales, Johnny Marr, Rufus Wainwright, The Magic Numbers, Beth Gibbons and Kate Bush on 2006's Fictions.
