Life and career[edit]

Born into a farming family in Villedieu-les-Poêles, Lower Normandy, Sophie Quinton studied drama at the Millet high school in Cherbourg. The films Peau d' Ane and La nuit americaine inspired her love of cinema. After leaving school, Quinton joined a small street-theatre group.

Quinton was introduced to a wider audience when she played the heroine in Qui a tué Bambi ? which earned her a César nomination for Most Promising Newcomer.

In 2005 she joined forces with Gérald Hustache-Mathieu for his first feature film, Avril.

Sophie Quinton has two sons.
