Charlotte Lucie Marie Adèle Stephanie Adrienne Faës (20 March 1865 – 14 October 1956), known by her stage name Jeanne d'Alcy or Jehanne d'Alcy, was a French film actress. She was the wife of French cinema pioneer Georges Méliès from 1925 until his death in 1938.

D'Alcy had achieved success in theatrical productions by 1896, but left the stage to devote herself to film, becoming one of the first performers to do so.[1]

Born in Vaujours, Seine-Saint-Denis, she appeared in Le Manoir du diable (1896), Jeanne d'Arc (1900) and Le Voyage dans la lune (1902). She died in Versailles at age 91.[2] She was portrayed by actress Helen McCrory in Martin Scorsese's 2011 film Hugo.[3]
