Parisian actress Nathalie Richard made her first film appearance at the age of 21 in the 1983 Norwegian romance "Black Crowes. " But it was six years later--when Richard landed a role in the coming-of-age drama "The Gang of Four"--that she really began to receive the attention of casting directors and film audiences. For her performance in that film, Richard won the Prix Michel Simon prize for Best Actress. In the following years, Richard's career grew steadily. In 1995, Richard co-wrote the screenplay for "Haut Bas Fragile," a musical comedy about the lives of three different women during one summer in Paris. In addition to being a part of the writing team, Richard played the role of Ninon and performed several musical numbers in the film. On the small screen, Richard appeared in the 2005 mini-series "3 Femmes... Un Soir d'Été" and as a series regular in the 2009's "Paris 16éme." Some of Richard's most recognizable feature film roles include the lesbian costume designer Zoé in the 1996 satire "Irma Vep" and Mathilde in the 2005 thriller "Caché." Richard is also well-known for her role in the 2010 chilling dystopian drama "Never Let Me Go," starring Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, and Keira Knightley.
