“I could see myself playing a psychopath or a serial killer!”
Initially drawn to dance and piano, Alice Isaaz decided just before graduating high school to test out the film world, when one summer in Biarritz, a man offered her a role in a short film. She then undertook studies at Cours Florent that ended up convincing her to pursue an acting career. She made her television debut in 2011, then graced the big screen in Ruben Alves’ The Gilded Cage.
In 2014, she nabbed her first major role in Kim Chapiron’s Smart Ass, which introduced her to general audiences, followed by Cécile Telerman’s The Yellow Eyes of the Crocodiles with Julie Depardieu, Emmanuelle Béart, Patrick Bruel and Édith Scob. She then booked three roles in 2015, in Jean-François Richet’s One Wild Moment, as well as Christian Carion’s Come What May and Julien Rappeneau’s Rosalie Blum.
In 2016, she joined the cast of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle and the following year she played the lead role in Gilles Bourdos’ Endangered Species. In 2018, she acted alongside Franck Gastambide in Christophe Régin’s On the Sly, and played Mademoiselle de Joncquières in Emmanuel Mouret’s The Art of Seduction.
She is currently in theaters in Rémi Bezançon’s adaptation of the David Foenkinos book The Mystery of Henri Pick and is part of Anthony Marciano’s cast in Play, coming in May 2019. She will also appear later this year in David Perrault’s Western, Wild State.
