Early life[edit]

Marlohe was born in Paris, France. Her father, a doctor, is of Chinese and Cambodian descent, while her mother, a teacher, is French.[3][4][5] She originally held aspirations of becoming a pianist, as well as an artist, studying at the prestigious French arts school Conservatoire de Paris for ten years.[4]

Career[edit]

Marlohe first appeared in 2007 in a French short film titled La discordance before appearing in French TV series such as Pas as de secrets entre nous (2008), Femmes de loi (2008), R.I.S, police scientifique (2009), and Père et maire (2009). She has appeared twice in the French crime series R.I.S, police scientifique, once in 2009 and once in 2012. In 2012 she played Laurent's, played by Maurice Barthélémy, date in Happiness Never Comes Alone.

She is best known for her role as Bond girl Sévérine in 2012's twenty-third James Bond film Skyfall. She is a strong believer in fate.[4] During an interview, she stated that she dreamt of acting alongside Javier Bardem six months before her Bond audition. After the dream, she knew that everything would be fine. It was not until the second audition for Skyfall that someone mentioned to her that Bardem might also be cast.[4] She is set to appear in the upcoming 2014 film 5 to 7 and in the Untitled Terrence Malick project alongside Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, and Rooney Mara.
