Born in Dijon, France, beautiful brunette Catherine Wilkening started her acting career in a bunch of TV shows and short films, starting as Zani in L’histoire en marche in 1985. She started adding feature films to the mix and did just two before giving the skinsational performance of a lifetime as Catherine in Mon bel amour, ma déchirure (1987), aka My True Love, My Wound. There isn’t an inch of her body this brunette goddess doesn’t reveal in the throes of passion in this film; from her ripe breasts to a very furry kitty, it’s all there, splayed out for ogling and admiration (and Mr. Skin does admire…and yes, ogles, too). She’s sexy and sexed up, even going bottomless in a public concert venue to have a bit of orgasmic fun. Where does an actress go from here? How about into awards territory, with the film Jesus of Montreal (1989), a French and Canada collab. Catherine plays Mireille in the movie about a play, and in the play, Mireille plays a Mary Magdalene figure (got all that?). Catherine got herself a Genie Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (it’s like an Oscar), and got temporarily topless in the film—Mr. Skin uses his Skin Vision to prolong the moment. The star continued to rack up credits on both the big screen and the little screen all the way through 2018, including popular turns as Léa in Le crime d’Antoine (1989), Angela in The Days of Desire(2008), and Nanou in Frenchmen (2003), along with its sequels in 2007 and 2013. Catherine retired from acting to pursue her other passion, sculpting, and has been featured in art shows and exhibitions steadily since 2015.
