Sophie Marceau


Sophie Marceau was born on 17th of November 1966 at Paris, France.From her childhood she was obsessed with acting. At the tender age of 14 she auditioned for various roles but she became famous for her role in the movie `La Boum` in the year 1981. This success led her to do `La Boum 2` in 1982 and also received a Cesar award from the French Academy of Cinema. Then in the year 1984 she was cast in Gaumont Pictures’ `Joyeuses Paques` and `Fort Saganne` and after that in `Police` in 1985. She also met Andrzej Zulawski (director and her future husband) who was influential in casting her in `L’Amour Braque` the same year and `Mes Nuits Sont Plus Belles Que Vos Jours` in 1989 and `La Note Bleue` in 1991. She also starred in `Descente Aux Enfers` in 1986, `Chouans` and `L’Etudiante` in 1988), `Pacific Palisades` in 1990 and `Pour Sacha` in 1991. She also achieved an `International Film Festival` award in the year 1988 for `Chouans`. With `Euridyce` she made her debut on stage and captured a `Moliere award` for the `Most Promising Newcomer`. This followed, with her presence in various French films `FanFan` in 1993, `La Fille de d’Artangnan` in 1994 and `Par-Dela Les Nuages` in 1995. That moment of life she was hugely popular in France and in Asia but she achieved her American stardom after 15 years of her starting career with her appearance in the Hollywood blockbuster `Braveheart`. Then she followed it with `Marquise`, `Anna Karenina` in 1997, `Firelight` in 1998, `Lost and Found`, William Shakespeare’s `A Midsummer Night’s Dream` and `The World Is Not Enough` in 1999. Her appearance in these hugely popular James Bond flick resulted in two Brazil Movie award nominations followed by a Blockbuster nomination. Then `Fidelite` and `Belphegor` got into the theaters. She was not satisfied with her acting career only. She went on to do recording with `Pierre et le Loup` and `Histoire de Babar` in 1994. She was also the author and director of the nine minute long Cannes hit film `L’Aube a l’Envers` and in the year of 1997 became the publisher of the semi-autobiographical novel `Menteuse`. Almost everyone is enthusiastic about the actor’s intelligence, charm, elegance and the critics hope that the best of Sophie Marceau is yet to come
