Yvonne George

Yvonne George (February 11, 1896 Brussels-May 16, 1930 Genoa) also known as Yvonne de Knops was a Belgian actor.

She initially started her career as a stage actor and performed in several plays in Belgium and France. Yvonne gained international recognition for her role in the French film "La Roue" (The Wheel) in 1923, directed by Abel Gance. She went on to act in several other French and German films during the 1920s. Some of her notable films include "Au Secours!" (Help!) (1924), "Fièvre" (Fever) (1921), and "Les Croix de Bois" (Wooden Crosses) (1932).

Apart from acting, Yvonne was also known for her love of literature and poetry. She translated several works of literature from French to Dutch and organized poetry recitals in Belgium. Unfortunately, her career was cut short due to her untimely death at the age of 34. She passed away in Genoa, Italy, while on a trip with her lover, the French actor Michel Simon. Despite her short career, Yvonne George remains a prominent figure in the history of Belgian and French cinema.
