Rendez-vous with Clémence Poésy

Clémence Poésy is an actress/model born in France. Clémence started acting at the age of 14 and continued schooling until the age of 16, when she got an agent and went on to study acting. She has appeared in several French films and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is only the second English film she has been in. The other was Gunpowder, Treason and Plot (2004), in which she played the role of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Clémence on acting in an other language: "It’s – strangely – easier. It’s a bit like playing with a mask on. You allow yourself to do more than you do in your own language. You’re not listening to [the words] as much, which is the worst thing you can do when you’re acting. You’re closer to playing the emotions. Well, maybe that’s just me."
The 25-year-old has a perfectly unstudied style. She favors a street-smart mix peppered with designer names like Balenciaga, Chloé, and Isabel Marant. She has been spotted in the front row at exclusive Paris fashion shows, has a penchant for girlie yet edgy labels, and exudes a serene beauty. "Beauty comes from who you’re with, what you’re doing, what you’re reading, the sport you’re doing,"
The only thing I can say after this quote is: GO CLÉMENCE!
