And Then There Was One: Madeleine LeBeau Is Last Living "Casablanca" Cast Member

Joy Page has passed at the age of 83. She has long been one of the last living cast members of Casablanca. She played the young Bulgarian newlywed who Rick helps get the money she needs to escape the city without having to resort to Captain Renault's usual "price."

With her passing, just Madeleine LeBeau remains— she played Yvonne in the film (most memorably she sings "La Marseillaise" with the crowd at Rick's Cafe: shouting "Vive La France" at the end).
