French actress, who appeared in 19 films between 1975 and 1985. During her short career, Laffin appeared with many of France's rising young stars, including Gérard Depardieu, Juliette Binoche and Miou-Miou as well as established stars such as Yves Montand.

Laffin made her major film debut in 1977, gaining critical acclaim for her role in director Jacques Doillon's 1979 film, "La Femme qui pleure." For her performance, Laffin was nominated for the César Award for Best Actress. That same year, she co-starred with a young Roberto Benigni in the film "Chiedo asilo."
