Biography

Born in Cairo, Egypt on June 5, 1944, Gillian Hills is a British actress and Yé-Yé/pop singer. Gillian is the daughter of traveler, teacher, author, and adventurer Denis Hills and Wanda Leśmianówna, the daughter of Polish poet Boleslaw Leśmian. Gillian grew up in Nice, France and was discovered at the age of 14 by director Roger Vadim, who cast her in his 1959 film Les Liaisons dangereuses. While she continued to make films – including Beat Girl (1960), Tales of Paris (1962), Blowup (1966) and A Clockwork Orange (1971) – she also became a popular singer in France. In 1960, she signed with Barclay Records and, under the supervision and production of Henri Salvador, she recorded her first EP, Cha Cha Stop, and the single “Près de la cascade”. Hills continued to record for Barclay for the next four years and released numerous singles and EPs, including “Cou-couche panier”, "Ma Première cigarette" (1960), "Zou bisou bisou" (1961), "En dansant le twist" (1962), and "Tu Mens" (1963). Her 1965 EP, Rien n’est change, was released on AZ Records and included the hit track “Tut, Tut, Tut, Tut…” Hills stopped recording music in 1965 and focused on her acting career. In the early ‘70s, she also abandoned her acting career and moved to New York, where she became an illustrator.
