South Holland - Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel, who starred in the iconic 1974 erotic French film Emmanuelle and over 50 other movies, died in her sleep overnight after suffering from cancer, her agent confirmed to AFP on Thursday.

"She died during the night during her sleep," Marieke Verharen of Features Creative Management told AFP of the 60 year-old actress who had been admitted to an Amsterdam hospital in July following a stroke.

The stroke had come after Kristel was receiving treatment for throat cancer. She was also suffering from liver cancer.

Kristel is survived by her son, Arthur, whom she had in 1975 with her then-husband, Belgian author Hugo Claus.

funeral

Kristel became famous with her first movie Emmanuelle, which described the erotic adventures of a young woman in Asia. A worldwide success, it was shown in a cinema on the Champs-Elysees in Paris for 13 years.

A series of sequels followed, also starring Kristel, with Emmanuelle 2 in 1975, Goodbye Emmanuelle in 1977 and Emmanuelle 4 in 1984.

Verharen declined to say whether the world's most famous Dutch actress died at home or at hospital.

The funeral will be private, she said.
