Though she was the daughter of silent film legend Charlie Chaplin, actress Geraldine Chaplin blazed her own trail with a prominent career as a supporting actress in major films in both Hollywood and abroad. After beginning her career with a small part in her father's film "Limelight" (1952), Chaplin made her official debut as Omar Sharif's spurned wife in "Doctor Zhivago" (1965) before starting a long romantic and professional collaboration with Spanish director Carlos Suava in the late 1960s. In the following decade, she was Queen Anne in "The Three Musketeers" (1973), a role she reprised in the 1974 and 1989 sequels, and delivered a Golden Globe-nominated performance as the celebrity-obsessed BBC reporter in Robert Altman's "Nashville" (1975). From there, she collaborated several times with director Alan Rudolph on "Welcome to L.A." (1976) and "The Moderns" (1988), while playing her own mentally-disturbed grandmother in "Chaplin" (1992), starring Robert Downey, Jr. as her father. She went on to acclaimed supporting turns in Martin Scorsese's "The Age of Innocence" (1993), Jodie Foster's "Home for the Holidays" (1995) and Pedro Almodóvar's "Talk to Her" (2002), while appearing in more commercial Hollywood fare like "BloodRayne" (2006) and "The Wolfman" (2010), making Chaplin one of the more prolific character actors in film.
