Jane Mallory Birkin, OBE is an English singer, songwriter, actress and former model. She attained international fame and notability for her decade-long musical and romantic partnership with Serge Gainsbourg. She also had a prolific career as an actress in British and French cinema.
A native of London, Birkin began her career as an actress, appearing in minor roles in Michelangelo Antonioni's Blowup, and Kaleidoscope.

The duo released their debut album Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg, and Birkin also appeared in the controversial film Je t'aime moi non plus under Gainsbourg's direction. Birkin would attain further acting credits in Agatha Christie's films Death on the Nile, and Evil Under the Sun.
After separating from Gainsbourg in 1980, Birkin continued to work as both an actress and a singer, appearing in various independent films and recording numerous solo albums. In 1991, she appeared in the miniseries Red Fox, and in the American drama film A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries, in 1998.
