Life and career[edit]

Hardy won the title of Miss France in 1992 and represented her country at Miss Universe 1992 and Miss World 1992.

She then launched an acting career in French cinema, beginning with the 1999 film, Recto/Verso, which was followed by her role as Charlotte in the TV series H in 2000.

Internationally, her best-known role to date has been the blue-haired, blue-teared, mutant-woman-turning-human, Jill, in the 2004 science fiction film, Immortel (released in North America as Immortal). In the film, Hardy is dubbed by an English-speaking actress (Barbara Weber-Scaff), except for one piece of dialogue delivered in her French.
