Clémence Poésy (French: [klemɑ̃s pɔezi]; born October 1982 as Clémence Guichard)[1] is a French actress and fashion model. After starting on the stage as a child, Poésy studied drama and has been active in both film and television since 1999, including some English-language productions. She is known for the roles of Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter film series, Chloë in In Bruges, Rana in 127 Hours, and Natasha Rostova in War and Peace.

Early life[edit]

Born in L’Haÿ-les-Roses,[1] a southern suburb of Paris, she is the daughter of actor-writer Étienne Guichard and a French teacher. Poésy took her mother’s maiden name as her stage name. She was sent to an alternative school[3] in Meudon.

Her father gave Poésy her first acting job when she was a child; then she had two lines at age 14. She has a younger sister, Maëlle Poésy-Guichard, who is also an actress.[4]

Actress[edit]

After leaving La Source, the bilingual, alternative school she attended until the age of 16, Poésy studied drama at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique (CNSAD, the French National Academy of Dramatic Arts), the Atelier International de Blanche Salant et Paul Weaver, and the University of Nanterre.[5]

Her first English-speaking role was in the BBC mini-series Gunpowder, Treason & Plot (2004), in which she portrayed Mary, Queen of Scots, subsequently winning the 2005 Golden FIPA for actress in a TV Series and Serial.[6]

In 2005, Poésy appeared in the Harry Potter franchise as Fleur Delacour[7] in The Goblet of Fire. Between 2006 and 2007, she worked in a number of film and television productions, including the 2007 mini-series War and Peace.

In 2008, Poésy starred in the Academy Award-nominated film In Bruges, alongside Colin Farrell, and Harry Potter co-stars Ralph Fiennes and Brendan Gleeson. In 2009, Poésy appeared in Heartless opposite Jim Sturgess. She reprised her role as Fleur Delacour in both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies.[8] She played Chuck Bass‘s new French girlfriend, Eva, in the fourth season of the CW hit show Gossip Girl.[9]

In 2010, Poésy appeared alongside James Franco in 127 Hours, directed by Danny Boyle. 127 Hours was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on 12 September 2010, following its premiere at the 2010 Telluride Film Festival.[10]

In 2011 she appeared alongside Rupert Friend in Lullaby for Pi, a romantic drama and Benoit Philippon’s directorial debut. The film is about a jazz singer (Friend) whose wife has just died and who meets a mysterious woman (Poésy). Forest Whitaker also starred.[11] She can be heard singing on the album Colour of the Trap by Miles Kane. She is featured on the track “Happenstance”.[12]

She worked alongside Michael Caine in Mr. Morgan’s Last Love,[13] and in 2012 made her Broadway debut in Cyrano de Bergerac as Roxane.[14]

In 2013, Poésy was the female lead in the Sky Atlantic/Canal+ series The Tunnel.[15]

Model[edit]

Poésy has been featured in numerous magazines, including the covers of i-D, on French magazine Jalouse twice, on Australia’s Yen, and on Nylon.[4][16][17] Since October 2007, Poésy has been one of three spokesmodels for the self-titled fragrance by Chloé,[7] and has modelled in Gap‘s 2008 autumn advertising campaign.[4][18]

In December 2011, Clémence was chosen as the face of G-Star Raw.[19] In 2014, she became the poster girl for the Love Story fragrance from Chloé.[20]
