Today is a truly special day as it is Léa’s 30th Birthday! She was born in Paris on July 1st, 1985.
2015 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Léa with her role of Madeleine Swann in the newest Bond installment, “Spectre” to be released in November. But I also think today marks a special date to look back into Léa’s 9-year acting career – In 2006, she got her first big role in Sylvie Ayme’s “Mes Copines“, a teenage comedy about four girls whose dream is to win a dancing contest.
“The Lobster” had its official presentation at the 68th annual Cannes International Film Festival on Friday and Léa was in attendance. Along with the rest of the cast, she took part in the famous photocall followed by the press conference. Later that evening, she attended the Chopard Trophy dinner in a stunning electric blue Elie Saab gown which she swapped for a beautiful custom made Miu Miu gown for the film premiere red carpet.

The 68th Cannes Film Festival has just begun and Madame Figaro has chosen Léa as its icon for the latest issue, dedicated to this majestic annual date. I’ve updated the gallery with the editorial’ scans from the digital issue and the english version of the interview that comes along with it, go and check it out! And don’t forget that tomorrow is the big day for Yorgos Lanthimos’ project “The Lobster“, we can’t wait to see Léa on the red carpet!
Exciting news! According to Indiewire and Variery Léa will star in Xavier Dolan’s next project: “Juste La Fin du Monde“. The cast includes other big names such as Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel! We’ll keep you updated!
Inspired by the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the story will follow a writer who returns home after a twelve-year absence to announce his impending death, and the reunion with his family that follows.
Production on the movie will begin at the end of May — right after Dolan finishes his Cannes Film Festival jury duties/ In the press release he describes ‘Monde’ as the bridge between his past work and his much bigger-scaled films.
At the end of March, the production of “Spectre” changed location and moved to Mexico where they are currently filming. As it’s been usual with this project, they held a press conference which Léa attended looking darling in a yellow Prada dress from their SS15 Collection.
