The young beauty Sophie Marceau seems to be sending us on a journey through time. Let's go back to the early 80s, when an unknown schoolgirl from the Paris suburb appeared on the covers of magazines around the world.
Born in 1966 in Paris, French actress Sophie Marceau became popular after her debut in the youth melodrama "Boom" (1980) and its equally successful sequel "Boom 2" (1982), which earned her the Cesar Award as the most promising rising star.
At the age of 16, she has already played alongside Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve in the film Fort Sagan. Depardieu will once again become her partner in the film "The Police" directed by Maurice Pial.
In 1982, Marceau signed a contract with the largest French film company "Gaumont", which was soon terminated by her. The company put up a penalty — a million French francs, for the payment of which the actress spent almost all of her earned money. Andrzej Zhulavsky, whom she met in the same year, helped her in this. Soon both left for Poland.
In 1984, Marceau played in "Crazy Love", her first film with Zhulavsky. This was followed by "My nights are more beautiful than Your Days" and "Blue Note". Since then, she has become one of the most popular and respected actresses in her country.
International success came to the actress after participating in the film "Braveheart", where her partner was Mel Gibson, and the Bond film "And the whole world is not enough."
Bettina Reims, who has photographed her repeatedly, calls Sophie "the most beautiful and sensual of young actresses."
