Biography

The daughter of an actor and a ballet teacher, Mélanie Laurent was born in Paris. Her film career began when she visited the set of ASTERIX ET OBELIX CONTRE CESAR (Claude Zidis) with a friend whose father was a crew member. She fortuitously crossed paths with the star of the film, Gérard Depardieu, who was so impressed with the 13 year-old, that he immediately offered her a role in his next film, UN PONT ENTRE DEUX RIVES. At that moment Mélanie knew that acting was her dream. At 17, she was cast in Jacques Audiard's highly acclaimed film, CECI EST MON CORPS, which was nominated for 10 César Awards in 2006. Mélanie was then cast in several supporting roles in box office hits such as Michel Blanc's comedy EMBRASSEZ QUI VOUS VOUDREZ and the father-son relationship drama DE BATTRE MON COEUR S'EST ARRÊTÉ.Director Philippe Lioret, who saw her in this film, was suitably impressed, and offered her the main role in his film, JE VAIS BIEN, NE T'EN FAIS PAS - without an audition. For her compelling performance in this film, Mélanie was awarded the prestigious Prix Romy Schneider in October 2006 and the César as "Best Female Newcomer" in 2007. She has been cast in a leading role as Isabelle Huppert's daughter in the film L'AMOUR CACHÉ, directed by Alessandro Capone, in Cedric Klapisch's PARIS, and in Quentin Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.Currently she can be seen in REQUIEM FOR A KILLER by Jérôme Legris. At the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, Mélanie was chosen as Mistress of Ceremony.
