There are many stars in the Depardieu family. Like her father, Julie Depardieu was immersed in the world of cinema during her youth. But nothing predestined the star to a career in cinema, preferring to devote himself to studying philosophy in Nanterre.
Yet it was with her father Gérard Depardieu that she made her acting debut, giving him the line in Le Colonel Chabert directed by Yves Angelo in 1994. Driven by this experience, Julie Depardieu chained roles in the cinema before being revealed in La Petite Lili by Claude Miller. A key role which earned her the title of best female hope and best female supporting role at the Césars in 2004.
Questioned by our colleagues from Gala, Julie Depardieu has a special memory of this double distinction. “You have to know how to receive. At the time, I was totally dumbfounded. It gave me as much pain as joy. A lot of things got mixed up. I was so happy to have been able to meet Claude Miller. He scored a lot. Without him, I would have had nothing at all. I loved his vision. With Ludivine Sagnier, we often talk about him saying ‘ah our Claudio'”. Four years later, the actress received her third César, for best supporting actress in Un secret.
With several notable films to her credit, distinguishing herself between drama and comedy, Julie Depardieu is as popular in the theater (Snow Therapy) as on television (Alexandra Ehle). After almost 30 years of career, the companion of Philippe Katherine remains above all a passionate woman. “It’s a very diverse profession. I have the chance to do a job that I like and that changes all the time. I go from one thing to another, from a film to a series then to a play. theater. I like not being in only one box. I really like this freedom to be in two or three different boxes”, she testifies to our colleagues.
From her beginnings to today, Julie Depardieu has metamorphosed throughout her career. Between award shows and previews, the 40-year-old has an atypical sense of style and is causing a stir on the carpet in front of photographers. Anthology of her striking looks through our slideshow.
