Before either of them were stars, they were both ballerinas. Caron was a ballerina in Ballets des Champs-Elysees, as was Brigitte Bardot. Canon was discovered by Gene Kelly, and was cast in her first film, An American in Paris (1951). Bardot, who had become friends with Canon while they were both ballerinas, first became a model, where she was discovered and cast in her first film, Crazy for Love (1952). Although the friends got their starts on similar paths, they soon diverged, with Bardot’s acting career ending in 1973.
