Joséphine Jobert (born 24 April 1985 in Paris) is a French actress and singer, best known for playing Detective Sergeant Florence Cassell in the BBC One series Death in Paradise.


Jobert was born to a French family, the daughter of Véronique Mucret Rouveyrollis, a photographer, musician, writer, actress, and director, and Charles Jobert, a camera operator and director of photography. Her father is from a Sephardic Pied-Noir family from Algeria,[1] and her mother's ancestry is Martiniquaise, Spanish and Chinese. Jobert comes from a family of artists, which includes her paternal aunt Marlène Jobert and cousins Eva Green and Elsa Lunghini.[2][3]

In 1997, aged 12, she moved with her parents to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, for eight years, where she studied singing and acting, and took her first steps into television. With her friends and her parents, she participated in the creation of songs, videos, a web series, and a television series on the internet. She attended drama workshops by Stéphane Belugou as well as Coda Music School.[4]


From 2008 to 2014, Jobert had steady work in various French television series. She took on her first English-language role as Detective Sergeant Florence Cassell in the BBC One series Death in Paradise at the beginning of its fourth season in 2015. She left the show for "personal and professional reasons" after episode six of the eighth series.[5]
