After her father, Charlie Chaplin was refused re-entry to the United States, their family moved to Switzerland. Geraldine attended boarding school there, and would become fluent in both French as well as Spanish. She appeared in a small part in her father’s film “Limelight” which was released in 1952.

At the age of 17, Geraldine then chose to pursue a dance career instead of going to college. She studied ballet for two years in England, and would turn professional, performing in Paris. She then found work as a model after leaving her dance career, before deciding to follow her father’s footsteps into acting. She would start to get noticed after appearing in 1965’s “Doctor Zhivago” for which she gained a Golden Globe Award nomination. Two years later, she made her Broadway debut in “The Little Foxes” which earned good reviews, and in the same year, she starred in the thriller “Peppermint Frappe”. Her net worth started to increase thanks to all of these opportunities.

In 1970, she starred in “The Hawaiians” alongside Charlton Heston, and three years later, she appeared in “The Three Musketeers” and would reprise her role in the sequel “The Four Musketeers”. She was also part of 1975’s “Nashville”, playing the BBC reporter Opal which earned her a second Golden Globe nomination. She then appeared in various Altman films, such as “A Wedding” and “Roseland”, but all these appearances boosted her nnet worth.

While involvedac in ting projects, Chaplin occasionally wrote scripts too, and she would win the Special Jury Prize at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival for her performance in “Cria cuervos”. She continued making films into the late 1970s, gaining critical acclaim for her role in “Remember My Name”.

In the next decade, she started taking French roles, appearing in films such as “Life Is a Bed of Roses”. In 1992, she appeared in the biographical film “Chaplin” playing her grandmother, and her performance earned her another Golden Globe award nomination. The following year, she was cast in Martin Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence”.

In 2000, she would begin starring in numerous Spanish films, receiving a Goya Mejor Actriz de Reparto for her performance in “In the City Without Limits”. She was given a Gold medal by the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematograficas de Espana for her work in Spanish Cinema. A few of her latest film projects include “The Impossible” and “Sand Dollars”.

For her personal life, it is known that Geraldine married Chilean cinematographer Patricio Castilla in 2006, and they have a daughter. She also had a son from a long term relationship with Spanish film director Carlos Saura from 1967-‘79. Chaplin maintains homes in Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Charles Chaplin] Daddy has never seen anything I've done, but he is the best critic I have. He has taught me how to tear down a character. "Slug your guts out" is his philosophy of acting. Never mind the talent, just work hard.
2I thought it'd be easy to get into the movies as Charles Chaplin's daughter. And I suppose it was. Except I wasn't much good as an actress - really terrible at the beginning.
3[on Doctor Zhivago (1965)] Although I went all over the world promoting it, I'd never got to see more than the credits before being whisked away. Finally, at Cannes, I was to sit through the whole thing. When I appeared for the first time, I fainted from the shock - and woke up in the ladies room.
