Brohan. I. Augustine Suzanne, a French actress, born in Paris, Jan. 29,1807. She was educated at the Paris conservatory, where in 1821 she obtained the first prize for proficiency in comedy. She made her first appearance on the Parisian stage at the Theatre Francais in 1824, and during the next 18 years acted at that theatre, the Odeon, and the Vaudeville, identifying herself chiefly with the last named. In 1842, when at the height of her reputation, she retired from the stage. Her personations were noted for acuteness, vigor, and an unusual command of the conventional stage resources. II. Josephine Felicite Augustine, a French actress, sister of the preceding, born in Paris, Dec. 2, 1824. She was educated at the conservatory, and like her sister gained at 14 years of age the first prize for comedy. Being of a devotional turn of mind, she almost immediately afterward entered a Convent, and was with great difficulty persuaded to make her debut on the stage. She first appeared at the Theatre Francais in 1828, as Dorine in Moliere's Tartufe, and created a favorable impression by her grace, vivacity, and modesty.

She was at once engaged at this theatre, and soon became a skilful interpreter of Moliere, excelling in such parts as Dorine, Toinette in the Malade imaginaire, Cleanthis in Amphitryon, and Suzanne in Beaumarchais's Mariage de Figaro. She has also acted in many modern pieces, including Hugo's Le roi s'amuse and Dumas's Mlie. de Belle-Isle. A few slight pieces of her own have been successful on the stage, and she has figured occasionally as a journalist; but her attacks in the Figaro on her old friend Victor Hugo aroused so much feeling against her that she relinquished journalism. After the death of Rachel she succeeded to her chair at the conservatory. III. Emilie Madeleine, a French actress, sister of the preceding, born in Paris, Oct. 21, 1833. She was educated at the conser-vatory, where she gained the prize for comedy, and at 17 made her debut at the Theatre Francais. She soon became a favorite, being not less noted for her personal charms than for her vivacity and intelligence as an actress, particularly in the modern drama.

In 1854 she was married to Mario Uchard, a dramatic author.
