Biography

While she had been acting in her native France for many years, Ludivine Sagnier did not gain international fame until she portrayed a seductive young woman who held deep secrets in the blockbuster "Swimming Pool" (2003). She was born on July 3, 1979 in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, Yvelines, France. Sagnier made her acting debut in the films "Les maris, les femmes, les amants" (1989) and "I Want to Go Home" (1989), followed by an appearance in the comedy "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1990). During her teen years, Sagnier appeared in several made-for-TV movies, as well as films like "Les enfants du siècle" (1999). Her career heated up when she appeared nude in films like "Water Drops on Burning Rocks" (2000) and "Little Lili" (2003). Sagnier earned a Cesar Award nomination for her role in "8 Women" (2002), but it was the actress' performance in François Ozon's 2003 thriller "Swimming Pool" that made her an international star. She played the Provencal nymphet, Julie, whose life of one-night stands becomes entangled in a seemingly real-life murder mystery written by an uptight author (Charlotte Rampling). With her blonde hair and considerable curves, Sagnier became a favorite to play the sexy seductress, but she played against type as Tinker Bell in the fantasy "Peter Pan" (2003). Following the American success of "Swimming Pool," Sagnier received many offers from Hollywood, but she remained committed to appearing in French films like the ensemble feature "Paris, je t'aime" (2006), "The Girl Cut in Two" (2007), and "Lily Sometimes" (2010).
