Alyson Le Borges is a French model and actress. She was born in Paris, France, the daughter of Marie-Hélène Le Borges and actor Anthony Delon. Her father was born in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., to French parents. Her mother is French. Alyson’s mother is pictured here.

Alyson’s paternal grandfather is French actor and businessperson Alain Delon (Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon, the son of François Fabien Delon and Édith Marie Suzanne Arnold). François was the son of Jean Marcel Delon, who was of French descent, and of Marie-Antoinette Evangelista, who was of Corsican Italian background, from Prunelli-di-Fiumorbo. Édith was the daughter of Alfred Louis Arnold, who was of mostly German, and some French, origin, and of Maria Minard, who was likely of French ancestry.

Alyson’s paternal grandmother is actress Nathalie Delon (originally Francine Canovas, the daughter of Louis Canovas and Antonietta Rodriguez). Nathalie was born in Oujda, Morocco. She is likely of Spanish descent. People of French and other European ancestry who lived in French North Africa were known as Pied-Noir (literally Black Feet).

Her paternal grandmother was actually born in Morocco to a French mother and a Pied-Noir father, Louis Canovas.

Based on his surname, Canovas (Cánovas), Louis could have Spanish ancestry, which makes sense since he was a Pied-noir.
