Sylvia Lopez (November 10, 1933 – November 20, 1959) was a French model and actress.
Career as a model
Born Tatjana Bernt, she was raised in Paris, where she began a career in modelling. Eventually she modeled for couturier Jacques Fath, the first French fashion designer to export his creations to the United States. Appearing under the name "Sylvia Sinclair", Bernt earned enough exposure to attract the attention of film producers.
Career in acting
In November 1956 she became the second wife of the composer Francis Lopez. As Sylvia Lopez, she made her first of two French-language films following which she appeared in several Italian swashbucklers with American stars such as Steve Reeves and Lex Barker that were commercially successful and for which she received favorable reviews.
Diagnosed with leukemia, Lopez died while working on the set of a film Voulez-vous danser avec moi? with Brigitte Bardot.
Sylvia Lopez is interred in the Cimetière du Montparnasse in Paris.
