Though Sophie Marceau is most famed for her acting credits, she turns out to be rather a versatile personality who also deals with directing, writing and producing. She rose to prominence double-quick after gaining the part in her debut movie La Boum.
In 1995, Marceau gained worldwide recognition after appearing in Braveheart. She also played in Pacific Palisades, Fanfan, Revenge of the Musketeers, Beyond the Clouds, Firelight, The World Is Not Enough, Don’t Look Back plus Cartagena movies. She plays at theater as well.
In 1995, Sophie tried her hand at directing in L’aube a l’envers and it was followed by Speak to Me of Love and Trivial films. In 2001, she presented her autobiography Telling Lies though its French version was written in 1995.
In 1985, Sophie Marceau got romantically involved with Andrzej Zulawski who directed My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days and Fidelity movies starring his girlfriend. In 1995, they welcomed their son Vincent. Having broken up with Andrzej in 2001, the French movie star started dating producer Jim Lemley. Their daughter Juliette drew her first breath in 2002, but the couple separated in 2006. From 2007 to 2014, Sophie was linked to Christopher Lambert who co-starred with her in Cartagena and Trivial.
A curious fact: Sophie’s real surname is Maupu but she uses pseudonym Marceau for professional purposes. Because of that, many people think that her dad is French mime Marcel Marceau.
