Louise Bourgoin, (born November 28, 1981 as Ariane Louise Bourgoin), is a French actress, model and television presenter.

Early life and career[edit]

She was born on November 28, 1981 in Vannes.[1] As her parents, both secondary level teachers, were encouraging her to pursue a stable career, Bourgoin studied for five years at the École des Beaux-Arts in Rennes.[2] She became a plastic arts teacher[citation needed] while simultaneously beginning to work as a model; some of her most notable early work as a model was for the photographer Ian Sanderson.[1]

After she graduated in 2004, Bourgoin became a presenter for the television program "Kawaï !" on the Filles TV channel. Two years later, she made a brief appearance on "Direct 8".[1] At the same time, she worked with TV presenter Marc Lacombe on a pilot program for PlayStation TV. This television channel never started broadcasting, and the pilot was never distributed[citation needed].

In 2006, she worked as the weathergirl for "Le Grand Journal" with Michel Denisot, broadcast nightly on Canal +. In order to avoid audiences confusing her for fellow "Grand Journal" presenter, Ariane Massenet, Bourgoin selected the pseudonym of "Salomé". As this was rejected by Canal +[citation needed], she chose the name "Louise Bourgoin" as a tribute to her favorite sculptor, Louise Bourgeois.[2]

In 2007, she was offered a first role in a film, playing a television weather girl in The Girl From Monaco.[3] Subsequently she played in several films including The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec from Luc Besson[4] and Black Heaven (original title L'autre monde) from Gilles Marchand that was Out of Competition at 2010 Cannes Film Festival.[2]
