Marilou Berry (born 1 February 1983) is a French actress.

Life and career[edit]

Marilou Berry is the daughter of filmmaker Josiane Balasko and sculptor Philippe Berry, and the niece of actor Richard Berry. Uninterested in school studies, she left high school and enrolled at the Conservatoire de Paris.

She made her first appearance on the screen at the age of 8 years in My Life is Hell, a comedy produced by her mother and co-starring her uncle, Richard Berry.

Berry has roles several times in films as teenagers who find their salvation in music. As Lolita Cassard in Look at Me (2003), she was a girl crushed by the notoriety of his father, an author, while trying to get him to notice her singing talent. As Hannah Goldman in The First Time I Turned Twenty (2004), she was the only girl in a traditionally all-male school jazz band in 1950s France.

She is moving rapidly toward comedy with Once Upon a Time in the Oued and then Nos jours heureux (Our Happy Days).
