Melanie Thierry is a French actress and model. She is best known for her roles in the films "Babylon A.D.," "The Legend of 1900," and "The Zero Theorem."
Melanie Thierry is one of France's most sought after actresses. Born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Yvelines, France on July 17, 1981, she got her start as a model at the age of 13. Before long, she was discovered by an agent named Miriam Bru, whom she describes as the the person who changed her life and career path due to seeing in her the "qualities to become an actress." And by 1996, she did just that by starring in the TV movie "L'amerloque."
By 1998, Melanie was discovered by director Giuseppe Tornatore in a Vogue Italia photoshoot and cast in the role of "The Girl" in the film "The Legend of 1900" alongside actor Tim Roth. While this role put the young actress/model on the map, she still abstained from jumping too fast into the professional acting world, choosing her projects very carefully. In 2000, she starred in another critically acclaimed Italian film by the name of "Canone inverso," slowly paving the way for her eventual Hollywood debut down the line in the film "Babylon A.D."
Between the big gap of 2000 and 2008, Melanie remained busy with her acting and modeling. During that time, she starred in a number of films, as well as TV series such as "Fete de famille," which she even won a "Best Young Actress" award for at the Luchon Festival in 2006. Since 2008, Melanie's career has continued to thrive. She even landed a starring role in Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem" in 2014, which costars rising actor Christoph Waltz, as well. But all of this success doesn't keep her away from what matters most: her two sons Roman and Aliocha Haroche, whom she shares with longtime boyfriend, French musician Raphael Haroche.
