Emmanuelle Seigner

Emmanuelle Seigner comes from a well-known family of actors. Both her grandfather, Louis Seigner, and her aunt, Françoise, belonged to the venerable Comédie Française; Louis Seigner also served as Managing Director of the company, which dates back to 1680.

Daughter of a photographer and a journalist, Seigner began her career as a model at the age of fourteen, and transitioned into acting when she was featured in Jean-Luc Godard's Detective. Her subsequent films include Pierre Granier-Defferre's Cours Privé; Roman Polanski's Frantic and Bitter Moon; Mario Monicelli's Il Male oscuro; Claude Miller's Le Sourire; Michel Deville's La Divine poursuite; and Gabriele Salvatores' Nirvana. Seigner was nominated for a 1998 César Award (the French equivalent of the Academy Awards) for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Nicole Garcia's Place Vendôme, opposite Catherine Deneuve. She will next be seen in Mark Hanlon's debut feature, Buddy Boy.
