About Roger Vadim


Vadim was born as Roger Vladimir Plemiannikov in Paris. His Belarusian father, Igor Plemiannikov, had immigrated from Ukraine and became a naturalized French citizen, and was a vice consul of France to Egypt. Vadim became a stage actor at the age of 16. In 1947 he became assistant writer to film director Marc Allégret.


Vadim was celebrated for his romances/marriages to beautiful actresses. He lived with Catherine Deneuve, by whom he had a child, Christian Vadim, prior to his marriage to Fonda. He wrote about these in his 1986 book Bardot, Deneuve & Fonda.

Candy Darling, of Andy Warhol's entourage, wrote of an alleged affair with Vadim in her diary, My Face for the World to See. In addition to Vadim's theater and film work, he also wrote several books, including his autobiography, D'une étoile à l'autre (From One Star to the Next).
