Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu

Life[edit]

After spending her childhood in Italy, she went to Paris at 16 to study drama - against the advice of her parents; her father is the actor, Philippe Leroy-Beaulieu. After appearing on the stage, she made her screen début in Roger Vadim's 1983 film Surprise Party. In 1985 she played her first major screen role (and earned a nomination for the César Award for Most Promising Actress), playing the distraught mother in Trois hommes et un couffin. The success of Coline Serreau's comedy helped her film career and a string of parts in costume films followed - films such as Andrzej Wajda's Les Possédés of 1988, Philippe Le Guay's Les Deux Fragonard, and Robert Enrico and Richard T. Heffron's La Révolution Française, playing Charlotte Corday, and released in 1989 to coincide with celebrations for the bi-centenary of the 1789 Revolution.

She starred in the title role of the French film Natalia, which was screened at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival.[1]
