Charlie Chaplin’s daughter, Josephine Chaplin, died July 13 at age 74.
“She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her beloved family and friends,” a statement shared by Chaplin’s estate said. “For years, Josephine managed the Chaplin Office in Paris on behalf of her siblings until she took leave to care for her husband Jean-Claude Gardin.”
The cause of death has not been released. A funeral service was held for Josephine at Père Lachaise Friday afternoon.
Josephine was one of the eight children Chaplin shared with his fourth wife, Oona O’Neill. Chaplin fathered 11 children with three of his four wives. Before O’Neill, the English comic was also married to Mildred Harris, Paulette Goodard and Lita Grey.
Josephine followed in her father’s footsteps and launched her own acting career. She appeared alongside her father in “Limelight,” which was also written and directed by Chaplin.
The actress starred in another Chaplin film in 1967, “A Countess From Hong Kong.” Other notable credits include “The Man Without a Face” and “Shadowman.”
