In the 1950s and 1960s television opened up a lot of opportunities for child actors. One of the more popular and talented at the time was the French actress Sylviane Margollé Barberine (1950 - 2005).

Sylviane Margollé began acting at age 6 and her last screen credit was when she was 29. She received rave reviews, such as her 1964 role on the television show Combat! She played an age-appropriate 13 year old "aspiring to serve the Americans as a nurse after they liberate her home town." As IMDb said: "A youngster 13 years of age putting on this caliber of performance makes The Little Carousel very, very special."

Her career continued into the 1970s with voice-overs, and she went on to marry and have a child. We remember this talented woman

Only lived to age 54. Sad. I don't remember that episode of Combat, but I was in college and not watching much TV!

Sylviane Margolle Barberine
Sylviane Margolle-Barberine, birth name Sylviane Christiane Paulette Margollé, was born in the 17th district of Paris, France. Sylviane Margollé began acting at the age of 6 and appeared in television shows and movies from 1957 through her last credit in Les Aventures de Plue d'Elan in 1979. She appeared in A Monkey in Winter (1962), The Case of Dr. Laurent (1957), and Experiment in Evil (1959) She also played Claudine in a 1964 episode of COMBAT! (called The Little Carousel) and also did voices for French animation as well as French language dubbing for American TV shows. A review from IMDb of her acting in the "Combat!" episode: "Sylviane Margolle puts on an absolutely superb performance of a 13 year old French girl, "Claudine", aspiring to serve the Americans as a nurse after they liberate her home town. When Little Carousel was made, Sylviane, in reality, was not quite 14 years old. A youngster 13 years of age putting on this caliber of performance makes The Little Carousel very, very special." Sylviane Margollé married New York native Gerard John Barberine Jr., 1955-2013, and they had one son. Having permanently moved to the United States, she quit acting in the late 1960s to early 1970s and mainly did voiceovers. Unfortunately, she died after "a surgical operation" and there is no record of where she is buried.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces.

My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
