Julie Depardieu was born on June 18, 1973 in Paris. She is the daughter of the famous actor Gérard Depardieu and the actress and lyricist Elisabeth Guignot. After her training at the Pierre Corneille high school in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, she studied philosophy. At the same time, she did many internships in the film industry.
While she was not destined for an acting career, she did extra work for the first time alongside her father Gérard Depardieu. She notably gave him the reply in the film Le Colonel Chabert in 1994. Since her first appearance, Julie Depardieu took a liking to cinema. She plays in stride in many films and television productions. We find her in A long engagement Sunday, Who loves me follows me, Women in the shadows or The yellow eyes of crocodiles by Cécile Telerman. In 2004, she received two supreme awards at the Césars: the prizes for best hope and best supporting actress for the film La Petite Lili by Claude Miller. Four years later, she received a third prize: the César for best actress in a supporting role thanks to her acting in the film A Secret by Claude Miller. The star also tries his hand at directing. In 2008, she staged with the playwright Stéphan Druet, an open-air opera entitled Les Contes d’Hoffmann d’Offenbach.
If Julie Depardieu is an accomplished actress, on the side of her private life, everything has not been rosy. Julie Depardieu loses her big brother Guillaume Depardieu at the age of 37. The latter died while filming in Romania for the film L’Enfance d’Icare. The actor, who contracts pneumonia and a staphylococcus aureus infection, dies three days later.
If the young woman remains discreet about her private life, we nevertheless know that she was in a relationship with the violinist Laurent Korcia from 2001 to 2008. Since 2010, she lives with the singer Philippe Katerine, met on the set of the film Je am a no man’s land. Together, the couple have two children, Billy born in June 2011 and Alfred born in August 2012.
On February 9, 2011, while Julie Depardieu was expecting her first child with her companion Philippe Katerine, Le Parisien released a scoop: the actress would be the victim of sextape blackmail. Indeed, according to the daily, a 34-year-old Haitian allegedly demanded 130,000 euros from him in exchange for an intimate video. The star would have spent an evening with him and he would have filmed her without her knowledge in a compromising situation. However, the celebrity lawyer quickly denied the site’s accusations. He explains that because of the word “compromising” written in Le Parisien, the press would have made a “striking shortcut” by announcing that it was a sextape. In reality, she would not have been filmed in any way having sex, she would simply have been filmed “fired up” and in a “very festive” state. Five months pregnant at the time, the future mother would have been very affected by these false insinuations.
After several years of career, actress Julie Depardieu is back on television. We find her in particular in the police register where she has played since 2018 Alexandre Ehle, the atypical forensic doctor in the eponymous series on France 3. “The character is very friendly. She is a little disobedient and does not do everything that is said. I think she does a good job of disobeying with a smile. As a result, she gets a little yelled at”, admits the famous actress to the Gala.fr site.
This Wednesday, May 24, it is in the skin of Léonore Etchegarray that she returns to the screen in the fictional Disappearance disturbing on France 2. She also gives the answer to the actor Daniel Russo and the former erotic actress Brigitte Lahaie .
