Léa Seydoux took her first acting classes at the age of twenty, and after a starring role in La Belle Personne she swiftly springboarded into an international career. She appeared alongside Brad Pitt in the Quentin Tarantino film, Inglourious Basterds, and with Russell Crowe in Robin Hood. She was cast in Midnight In Paris and starred in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol alongside Tom Cruise. She now plays the role of Madeleine Swann in Spectre and later in the year will appear in The Lobster. Seydoux has been nominated for two César Awards and she made history at Cannes in 2013 with her co-star Adèle Exarchopoulos, being the only actors to ever receive a share of the Palm d’Or, for their work in Blue Is The Warmest Colour.
