Rising to fame with Christophe Honoré’s The Beautiful Person in 2008, Léa Seydoux has become one of the most in-demand actresses of her generation both in France and worldwide. An award-winning actress, notably the Palme d’or for Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Colour at the 2013 Festival de Cannes, she successfully alternates between art and popular films. We saw her in Rebecca Zlotowski’s Dear Prudence and Grand Central, Benoît Jacquot’s Farewell, My Queen and Diary of a Chambermaid, Bertrand Bonello’s Saint Laurent and in Sam Mendes’ Spectre as the new James Bond Girl. She returned to Cannes, competing with Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster in 2015 and Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World in 2016. She will soon be staring in Thomas Vinterberg’s Kursk and Drake Doremus’ Zoé.
