Julie Delpy (1969)

Type :  


Julie Delpy is a French-American actress, director, screenwriter, and singer-songwriter. She studied filmmaking at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and has directed, written, and acted in more than 30 films, including Europa Europa , The Voyager , Three Colors: White , Before Sunrise , Before Sunset , and 2 Days in Paris . She has been nominated for three César Awards, two Online Film Critics Society Awards, and an Academy Award. After moving to the United States in 1990, she became an American citizen in 2001.


 early life
Julie Delpy was born 21 December 1969 in Paris, France to Albert Delpy, a theater director, and Marie Pillet, an actress in feature films and the avant-garde theater. She was an only child. On the stages of Paris, Delpy's parents were involved in underground theater. At an early age, Julie was exposed to the arts.
I couldn't hope for better parents. They really raised me with a love of art, bringing me to museums and seeing things that a child wouldn't see at that age. I would see Ingmar Bergman movies when I was 9 and totally go for it. And they would bring me to see Francis Bacon's paintings, which I loved: so dark and at the same time it's so wonderful.

Delpy has said she has been plagued by health problems since childhood and had to wear callipers at age 8. She also experienced migraines and panic attacks.

 film career
In 1984, at the age of 14, Delpy was discovered by film director Jean-Luc Godard, who cast her in Détective . Two years later, Delpy starred in the title role in Bertrand Tavernier's La Passion Béatrice . For her performance, Delpy received a César Award Nomination for Most Promising Actress. She used the money she earned to pay for her first trip to New York City. Delpy became an international celebrity after starring in the 1990 film Europa Europa. In the film, she plays a young pro-Nazi who falls in love with the hero, Solomon Perel, not knowing that he is Jewish. She had to speak fluent German for the part.

Following the success Europa Europa, Delpy appeared in several Hollywood and European films, including The Voyager , The Three Musketeers , and Killing Zoe . In 1993, she was cast by director Krzysztof Kieślowski to play the female lead in Three Colors: White, the second film of Kieślowski's The Three Colors Trilogy. Delpy also appeared briefly in the other two films in the same role.

Delpy may be best-known internationally for her co-starring role with Ethan Hawke in director Richard Linklater's 1995 film Before Sunrise, for which she has stated she wrote a lot of her own dialogue uncredited. The film received glowing reviews and was considered one of the most significant films of the 1990s' independent film movement. Its success led to the casting of Delpy in the 1997 American film ''An American Werewolf in Paris.

In late 2001, she appeared alongside comedian Martin Short in the 30-minute film CinéMagique, a theatre-show attraction presented several times daily at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Resort Paris. Delpy attended the March 2002 opening of the park and the inauguration of the film-based attraction which sees her star as Marguerite—a female actress with whom Short's character, George, falls in love as he stumbles through countless classic movies. CinéMagique won the coveted 2002 Themed Entertainment Association award for "outstanding" themed attraction. Delpy reprised her Before Sunrise character, Céline, with a brief animated appearance in Waking Life , and again in a 2004 sequel, Before Sunset. The later film was well-received and earned Delpy, who co-wrote the script, her first Academy Award nomination for Writing Adapted Screenplay. In addition, she has been nominated for César Awards three times.

 personal life
Delpy moved to New York in 1990 and moved to Los Angeles, California a few years after that. She has been a naturalized citizen of the United States since 2001, although she also retains her French citizenship. She now divides her time between Paris and Los Angeles. Since 2007, she has been dating the German film score composer Marc Streitenfeld. The couple had a son named Leo in January 2009.
