Early life[edit]

Arnezeder was born in Paris, France. Her father Wolfgang Arnezeder is Austrian and Catholic, whereas her mother Piera Schinasi is an Egyptian Jew and of Sephardic Jewish (Italian-Jewish) descent.[2][3][4] While she was still in high school, she studied acting, dancing and singing at the renowned drama school Cours Florent.[5]


Arnezeder's first major role was in 2008 in Paris 36 (French: Faubourg 36), which was directed by Christophe Barratier and for which she won the Lumières Award as well as the Étoile d'Or award. In the film, Arnezeder performed the song "Loin de Paname", which was nominated for Best Original Song at the 82nd Academy Awards. In 2009, Arnezeder was the face of Guerlain's fragrance "L'Idylle".

In 2012, Arnezeder appeared in the film Safe House, as the girlfriend of Ryan Reynolds' character. In the same year she appeared in role of Celia in The Words, which was presented at the Sundance Film Festival.[6] In the same year, Arnezeder also starred in the horror slasher film Maniac.

In 2013, she was the leading actress in the internationally praised costume drama Angélique by Ariel Zeitoun.

She appeared as Chloe Tousignant, a French intelligence investigator, in the main cast of the first two seasons (2015–17) of the CBS series Zoo.[7]

Arnezeder appeared in 6 episodes, between 2014 and 2018, of the series Mozart in the Jungle, playing the feisty, gifted, and rambunctious character of Anna Maria—the wife of the main character.
