‘Casablanca’ actress Madeleine LeBeau dies

(CNN)Madeleine LeBeau, widely believed to be the last surviving cast member from the classic film “Casablanca,” has died, her stepson said. She was 92.

LeBeau played Yvonne, the jilted mistress of Humphrey Bogart’s character, Rick.
In a memorable scene from the World War II-era film, her eyes fill with tears as “The Marseillase” plays, and she cries out, “Vive la France!”

In addition to her role in “Casablanca,” LeBeau also appeared in the 1950 film “Cage of Gold” and in Federico Fellini’s 1963 film “8 1/2,” according to CNN sister network Turner Classic Movies.
According to IMDB.com, there were parallels between LeBeau’s role in Casablanca and her life. The French actress escaped Nazi-occupied France, fleeing with her then-husband, Marcel Dalio, who also had a role in “Casablanca.”
