Type :  


Patricia "Patti" D'Arbanville is an American actress and former model.


 early life
D'Arbanville, born May 25, 1951 in New York City, New York, is the daughter of Jean (née Scott), an artist, and George D'Arbanville, a bartender, and attended PS 41 on Eleventh Street. She went to High School at Quintano's School for Professional Children.

 Early recognition
She acted in her first film in 1960 at age 8; a New York University student film about a girl and her cat Tuesday and Blue Silk. Andy Warhol discovered her during a gig as a club disc jockey at age 13, and cast her at age 16 in his 1968 film Flesh.

 Flirting with fame
In the late 1960s she pursued a career as a model in London, where she met Cat Stevens and they developed a romance. She was the inspiration for at least two of his hit songs: "Lady D'Arbanville", and "Wild World", which were recorded on Mona Bone Jakon, and Tea for the Tillerman. She left him for periods of time to continue her modeling career in Paris and New York City, and was a part of Warhol's Factory scene. In an interview with Warhol she said wistfully that she'd heard the song "Lady D'Arbanville": "Steven wrote that song "Lady D'Arbanville" when I left for New York. I left for a month, it wasn't the end of the world was it? But he wrote this whole song about 'Lady D'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still.' It's about me dead. So while I was in New York, for him it was like I was lying in a coffin... he wrote that because he missed me, because he was down... It's a sad song." Stevens had adopted a stage name which D'Arbanville never used; instead preferring his true name, Steven Demetre Georgiou.

After Flesh, D'Arbanville performed in Warhol's L'Amour , and as the title character in David Hamilton's movie Bilitis .

After her unabashed risqué performances in her youth, D'Arbanville has worked steadily in film and television series in the United States and France. In 1987, D'Arbanville won a Drama-Logue Award as Best Actress for her 1987 stage performance, in Italian American Reconciliation. She was well known for her role as Lt. Virginia Cooper on the FOX series New York Undercover.
