Background Edit

Born on 14 February 1951, Desirée Racine worked as a lounge singer in the south of France when she became involved with Immortal, Duncan MacLeod. Duncan encountered her while attending the 1978 Cannes Film Festival.

With Duncan MacLeod, 1978

The two toured the Mediterranean extensively, and when MacLeod beheaded the Immortal, Lothar on the beach near their hotel on 17 May, the pair evaded police on a motorcycle as they fled the city in the aftermath.

She and Duncan arrived at the Casino Montecour in Monaco, where Desirée won over a million francs gambling at the casino owned by Baron Lemartin and Carlo Capodimonte. Unfortunately, her money was stolen at gunpoint that night, by a masked gunman in their hotel suite. Desirée then left MacLeod forever, unable to forgive him for not saving her money by fighting off the robber.

Later, in 1982, Racine married Jacque Founry, member of the French Assembly. The marriage only lasted a few years, and in 1989, she married Pierre Dorot, a prominent French film director.
