Madrid: French actress Madeleine Lebeau, the last surviving cast member of the classic 1942 film "Casablanca", has died. She was 92.

Lebeau died on May 1 in Estepona, Spain, after breaking her thigh bone, her stepson, documentary filmmaker and environmentalist Carlo Alberto Pinelli told hollywoodreporter.com.

In "Casablanca", Lebeau played late actor Humphrey Bogart's spurned lover.

Born in 1923 near Paris, she fled Nazi-occupied France with her then husband, prominent actor Marcel Dalio, in 1940.

Following "Casablanca" and her divorce from Dalio in 1942, Lebeau had a prominent role in the film "Paris After Dark" (1943) and then appeared in "Music for Millions" (1944).

She returned to Europe after the war and worked in films such as "The Royalists" (1947), "Cage of Gold" (1950), "Sins of Madeleine" (1951) and "La Parisienne" (1957).

Lebeau was also married to Tullio Pinelli, a screenwriter who earned Oscar nominations for "8 1/2" and "I Vitelloni" (1953), "La Strada" (1954) and "La Dolce Vita" (1960). They were married from 1988 until his death in March 2009 at age 100.
