“I went into this line of work because I dreamed a lot as a child. I dream so much about other lives, other people. I hope I keep dreaming my whole life.”
She showed a very early interest in comedy: at age 7 she began doing amateur theater, then joined an improv team. She first appeared on television at 14, and the following year joined the cast of Bruno Chiche’s Barnie’s Minor Annoyances with Fabrice Luchini, Nathalie Baye and Marie Gillain. She next appeared in Marie-France Pisier’s Like an Airplane, in Daniel Duval’s A Year in My Life and Tonie Marshall’s Off and Running.
In 2011, she ventured into action filmmaking with Julien Leclercq’s The Assault as well as animation, voicing Nadia in Zep’s Titeuf; she also worked alongside Audrey Tautou and François Damiens in Stéphane and David Foenkinos’ Delicacy.
On the heels of Régis Roinsard’s Popular, she reunited with Julien Leclercq for Gibraltar, then played a young woman exasperated by Max Boublil and Alain Chabat’s The Brats – directed by Anthony Marciano; the film became a runaway hit. She followed up with Nicolas Bary’s The Scapegoat and Rémi Bezançon’s Our Futures, while Clovis Cornillac offered her the lead role in his first film Blind Date.
In the past three years she’s been directed by Axelle Ropert and Serge Hazanavicius among others, and is eagerly anticipated in actor Mathias Mlekuz’ first film, the comedy Mine de rien, as well as in Patrice Leconte’s next two films.
