Hollywood eyes two French actresses
Will they follow in the footsteps of Isabelle Huppert, Juliette Binoche and Eva Green?
Adèle Exarchopoulos, the youngest winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or for her co-starring role in Blue Is the Warmest Color, has just signed with the American talent agency UTA.
It's no surprise as the French actress acquired international recognition since the release of the film in 2013 and has already landed an English-speaking role in Sean Penn’s The Last Face with Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem.
UTA also announced that they signed Camille Cottin, best known for her roles in the French comedy series available on Netflix Call my agent! (Dix pour cent) and in BBC America hit series, Killing Eve. First known for her sketches, she has since managed to find roles in popular comedies as well as indie films like Christophe Honoré’s On a Magical Night.
Camille Cottin, a former English teacher, will soon star in Tom McCarthy's drama Stillwater alongside Matt Damon, her first American film.
