Lilyan Chauvin

Birthday: May 7, 1925
Birthplace: Paris, France
French-American character actress Lilyan Chauvin is one perhaps one of many actors or actresses that you know the face, but do not know the name. Chauvin is a long time veteran of the European stage, and is adept at playing strict, but sometimes loving characters. To horror fans, she might be best known as the sinister Mother Superior in Silent Night Deadly Night (1984), but her career started back in the 1950s when she was plucked from the stage to appear in small minor roles in motion pictures. One notable film was with John Wayne in North to Alaska (1960). Over the past thirty years, Chauvin has found herself as one of the busiest character actresses in Hollywood appearing in over forty films and numerous appearances on television. Her many film credits have included "Private Benjamin", "Predator 2", "No Place to Hide", "Universal Solider" (as Jean-Claude Van Damme's mother) and most recently co-starred with Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio in Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can".
