Emma De Caunes

Emma De Caunes has filmed more than 20 films in France, establishing herself as a leading lady in cinema.

Born and raised in Paris, de Caunes is no stranger to acting; her mother and father have been in the business since she was a little girl. Her big break was at age 10, in the film Remarquable Imitation de Lio. In 1997, her role as Sophie in the film Un Frere won her a César for Most Promising Actress. In 2002, she received the Romy Schneider Prize for Best Promising Young Actress in French film.

de Caunes starred in her first English-language role in Short Order, a musical about how love and wisdom come together over one night in the culinary underbelly, where life is a buffet and everything is short order. In 2006, de Caunes starred in Michel Gondry's The Science of Sleep, opposite Gael Garcia Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Most recently, she filmed The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, for director Julian Schnabel (Before Night Falls).

de Caunes currently resides in Paris.
