Clémence Poésy Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

A prolific Gallic actress with a distinct onscreen presence, Clémence Poésy kick-started her career in a series of films produced in her native France, then gradually expanded her scope to include European and (later) U.S.-based efforts. Poésy signed for one of her first major parts with a supporting role opposite the legendary [[Performer~P7640~Carole Bouquet~carolebouquet]] and [[Performer~P20323~Michel Duchaussoy~michelduchaussoy]] in [[Performer~P361256~Francis Palluau~francispalluau]]'s hostage-themed comedy [[Feature~V284382~Bienvenue Chez Les Rozes~bienvenuechezlesrozes]] (2003). She then evoked the period flair of Mary, Queen of Scots with her portrayal of that character opposite [[Performer~P11052~Robert Carlyle~robertcarlyle]] in [[Performer~P100669~Gillies MacKinnon~gilliesmackinnon]]'s U.K. miniseries [[Feature~V305665~Gunpowder, Treason and Plot~gunpowdertreasonandplot]], and then tackled a lead in the German comedy drama [[Feature~V307063~Olga's Summer~olgassommer]] (2004). In that film, Poésy played Olga, a 16-year-old who falls madly in love with a much older man and runs off with him to the French Rivera. Poésy subsequently achieved international crossover success and made her Hollywood debut as Fleur Delacour in the family-oriented big-budget fantasy [[Feature~V289461~Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire~harrypotterandthegobletoffire]] (2005) and essayed a romantic lead opposite [[Performer~P22766~Colin Farrell~colinfarrell]] in [[Performer~P467854~Martin McDonagh~martinmcdonagh]]'s steel-tough action-drama [[Feature~V385253~In Bruges~inbruges]] (2008). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
