One of Hollywood’s thespians, Christine Kaufmann, of German descent, has died at the age of 72, her manager announced on Tuesday.

The actress rose to stardom in Germany at the age of nine, when she starred in the 1954 West German drama ‘Rose-Girl Resli’ directed by Harald Reinl.

It was also gathered that she gained international recognition at 14, when she starred in an Italian sword-and-scandal film ‘The Last Days of Pompeii’.

Christine Kaufmann won a Golden Globe in 1961

Kaufmann won a Golden Globe award for the 1961 film “Town without Pity,” in which she starred with Kirk Douglas and played a girl allegedly raped by four U.S. soldiers.

At 18, the legend married another Hollywood thespian Tony Curtis who she met while filming 1962 Taras Bulba. Curtis was 20 years older than her.

The marriage lasted for five years, then she returned to Germany with her two children and continued her acting career.
