Charlotte Le Bon (born 4 September 1986) is a French Canadian actress, model and television presenter. She is known for her work in the Canal+ talk show Le Grand Journal, and the films Yves Saint Laurent, The Hundred-Foot Journey,[1] and The Walk.

Life and career[edit]

Le Bon was born in 1986 in Montreal, to Brigitte Paquette and Richard Le Bon, both actors.[2] She began modelling at 16 years old[3] and left Canada when she was 19 to model overseas.[4] After spending brief periods in Tokyo and New York City,[3] she eventually settled in Paris in 2011. She never enjoyed modelling, however, saying that "I was a model for eight years and really hated it."[4] Soon after, she was cast in Le Grand Journal, a news- and pop culture-based talk show on the French television channel Canal+, appearing as the show's weather girl, "Miss Météo".[4][5]

After being cast on Le Grand Journal, Le Bon began to receive offers for acting parts in films.[3] Her first film role was in the 2012 French comedy Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.[6] In 2013 she appeared in Mood Indigo and The Marchers,[5] and in 2014 she starred as Yves Saint Laurent's muse Victoire Doutreleau (fr) in the biographical film Yves Saint Laurent.[4] Her first role in an English-language film was in The Hundred-Foot Journey, a romantic comedy directed by Lasse Hallström in which she plays a chef-in-training at an upscale French restaurant alongside Helen Mirren.[3][7]

Le Bon was cast with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Walk, a film directed by Robert Zemeckis and based on Philippe Petit's famous tightrope walk in 1974, released in 2015.[8][9] In 2015, she dubbed the voice of Joy in both the French and Quebec French dubs of the Pixar film Inside Out.

She lives in Paris,[9] and is bilingual in French and English.[6]
