Lizzie Brocheré (born March 22, 1985) is a French film, television, and theatre actress who began working as a child actress in 1995 and has become a strong television and film presence in French cinema. She moved to strong English-speaking roles in the early 2010s, with appearances in dark comedic and dramatic pieces from Jean Marc Barr (One to another with Arthur Dupont and Karl E. Landler), Eric Schaeffer (After Fall, Winter, 2011) and Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story: Asylum, 2012–2013).

Life and career[edit]

Lizzie Brocheré was born in Paris, France. Beginning her acting career at the age of 10 in the 1995 television film Parents à mi-temps, Brocheré would go on to play a string of small roles in television films and series, including Les Enquêtes d'Éloïse Rome, Sydney Fox l'aventurière, Camping Paradis and Sauveur Giordano.[1] In 2001, the 16-year-old Brocheré made her debut on the big screen as Jeanne in Hugo Santiago's Le Loup de la côte ouest (English: The Wolf of the West Coast), which screened at the Montreal Film Festival to mixed reviews.[2]

Brocheré played the supporting role of Gladys in Bernard Rapp's Un petit jeu sans conséquence (2004). In the same year she landed the recurring role of Eva in the television series Alex Santana, négociateur (2004–2007).[3] In an overlapping commitment, she played the recurring character Cécile Chalonges in the French-Swiss television series R.I.S, police scientifique (2006–2008), a remake of an Italian crime drama. Brocheré also starred in the Chacun sa nuit (2006, English: One to Another), directed by Jean-Marc Barr and Pascal Arnold, as the character Lucie alongside (Arthur Dupont and Karl E. Landler), a part for which she was preselected as Best Newcomer in the French Cesars.[citation needed]

In 2007, she was also awarded Best Newcomer at the Luchon Film Festival for her lead in comedy Bac+70, where she stars alongside Pierre Mondy. Brocheré played the leading role in Karin Albou's film Le Chant des mariées (2008), portraying Myriam, a Jewish Tunisian young woman in Tunisia in World War II, which won the Festival du Film de l’Outaouais 2009 (Quebec). Individually, she was awarded Best Actress for this role at the St Jean de Luz Film Festival. She then played series regular Elina, a Russian policewoman, in Les Bleus (2009).

In 2010, she played in a second film directed by Jean-Marc Barr and Pascal Arnold, which was released in June 2011, the French-English American Translation, a psychological thriller. She shot her first action movie Nuit Blanche (2011), directed by Frederic Jardin, where she played a minor role alongside Tomer Sisley and Joey Starr, as a young inexperienced policewoman.[4] She then went on to play a fully English-speaking role as Sophie in the Eric Schaeffer's dark adult comedic drama After Fall, Winter (2011).[citation needed] In April 2012 she was cast in a recurring role as Grace Bertrand in the American thriller/horror series American Horror Story: Asylum, the second season of that Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy franchise.[5]

Subsequent and current film and television work include credited roles in The Mark of the Angels: Miserere (2013, feature film, Dounia), Braquo (2014, TV series, recurring as Oriane), Deux petites filles en bleu (2014, TV film, Séverine), as well as short film and single episode American television appearances (e.g., The Strain, 2015). She is reported to be in filming in 2015 with the feature Full Contact.
