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), in which she played Grace Bertrand.
Life and career
Lizzie Brocheré is a French writer, actor, producer and activist. She currently stars as the lead in Gale Ann Hurd’s sci-fi show Falling Water which airs on USA and Amazon. The second season will premiere on January 6, 2018.
She is well known to US audiences for playing the role of Coco in Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain and the role of Grace in FX’s American Horror Story. Her international TV credits include the French TV series Versailles, BBC's The Hour and Canal +’s Braquo.
Brocheré began acting at a very young age and starred in various French TV shows and films including Hugo Santiago’s The Wolf of the West Coast and Bac+7, for which she won the Best Young Actress Award at the Luchon Film Festival. Her big break came when she landed the lead role in the sensual Dogme film One to Another directed by Jean Marc Barr and Pascal Arnold with whom she collaborated again a few years later on with the thriller American Translation.
Since she started with Dogme's provocative way of making films, she's always been eager to explore different and new forms of storytelling. She was in the experimental video Linear by Anton Corbjin and also starred in Lou Viger’s, Do Me Love, which was one of the first features to be shot with a camera. She also starred in the VR film Alteration, which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca and Venice Film Festivals.
Her other film credits include: F. Javier Gutiérrez’s Rings; David Verbeke’s Full Contact, for which she won the award for Best Female Actor at the Chicago Film Festival; Eric Schaeffer’s After Fall, Winter; Frederic Jardin’s Nuit Blanche; Nakache and Toledano’s Tellement Proches and Karin Albou’s The Wedding Song, for which she won the Best Actress Award at the Saint- Jean-de-Luz Film Festival.
Brocheré received her master’s in film and Literature at the Sorbonne and went on to ESCP business school for Media Management. During her time there, she worked as a production assistant for Acajou Films and launched the “7 days for a film” script contest. She also produced the winning short film Les Oreilles by Gilbert Babena.
Her humanitarian work includes starting the non-profit organization Iemanja with Léo Leibovici, whose goal is to promote sustainable environmental awareness and create dialogues between cultures and generations. Through Iemanja, she produced the short environmental documentary Une Zone Humide à Défendre and Terre Ferme, which explored the issue of everyday racism in the month leading up to the 2017 French elections. She also works to help teach literacy and foreign language by applying the tools of performance to social integration techniques. She also teams up with Dr. Alden.
