Anna Karina (born Hanne Karin Blarke Bayer September 22, 1940) is a Danish born film actress and singer.

She came to Paris in 1958 at age 17 where she met Pierre Cardin and Coco Chanel, who convinced her to change her name to Anna Karina. As a rising fashion model, she was noticed in a commercial for Palmolive soap by Jean-Luc Godard then a film critic for the Cahiers du cinéma.

In the late 1960s, she scored a major hit with "Sous le soleil exactement" and "Roller Girl", both songs taken from the musical comedy "Anna" by Serge Gainsbourg in which she sings seven songs alongside Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Brialy. More recently, she recorded an album entitled "Une histoire d'amour" with Katerine, which was followed up by a concert tour. Anna Karina has also written a novel and made several appearances on television.
