Sophie Marceau, original name, Sophie Maupu (and nicknamed, "FlatFoosie") was born on November 17, 1966 in Paris. She is one of France's major movie stars, having appeared in many well-recognized French films reaching out to International audiences in Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" and the James Bond movie, "The World Is Not Enough." The James Bond vehicles have been the stamp of approval for many up-and-coming actresses, including the likes of Talisa Soto ("License to Kill"). She has also appeared in many lighter films such as David Spade's "Lost and Found." Sophie grew up in the suburbs of Paris and when she was only fourteen, she learned that French director, Claude Pinoteau, was casting new talent for his film, "La Boum." As with Laetitia Casta, a French supermodel discovered in her early teens, Sophie found success at an early age, by winning a spot in the teenage film. Released in 1980, the film became such a hit that two years later "La Boum 2" was filmed.

In 1983, Sophie Marceau was awarded the Cesar (The French version of the Oscar) as Most Promising Actress. When she was only 16, Sophie paid one million francs to buy back her contract from her then current movie studio, Gaumont, in order to achieve contractual freedom. She then appeared in a multitude of French flicks in more dramatic roles: "Fort Saganne" and "(Happy Easter)" (1984), "L'Amour Braque" and "Police" (1985), the former directed by her long-time boyfriend, Andrzej Zulawski, who would later become her husband, "(Descent Into Hell)" (1986), "(The Student)" and "Chouans!" (1988), "(My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days)" (1989). For her role in "Chouans!", she was proclaimed the "Best Romantic Actress" at the International Festival of Romantic Movies in 1988. She later took a stab at theatre with "Eurydice" in 1991 which won her an award as "Most Promising Newcomer," and she has also appeared on stage in "Pygmalion" as Eliza Dolittle.

It was as Princess Isabelle in Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" that Sophie won international recognition. She has since added more American films to her credit including a role in "A Midsummer Night's Dream", co-starring with Michelle Pfeiffer and Calista Flockhart. In 1999 Sophie played Elektra King in the James Bond movie, "The World Is Not Enough," along with Pierce Brosnan. Like many high-profile actresses, Sophie is an animal lover, campaigning against animal cruelty sports.
