Similarly: why is it, tu me rapelles ma mère, and not, de ma mère?

Because the French structure is different: there's no preposition in front of the thing being remembered.

Then why, Cette fille me rappelle une actrice célèbre?

Same thing?

Tu me rapelles ma mère - "You remind me of my mother." There's no equivalent for "of" in French. Cette fille me rappelle une actrice célèbre - "This girl reminds me of a famous actress." Same thing.

Similarly: why is it, tu me rapelles ma mère, and not, de ma mère?
