Biography of Anne Parillaud

Anne Parillaud is a French actress who was born on May 6, 1960. She has appeared in 24 films, with some of her most well-known roles being in "Nikita," "Intimate Scenes," and "The Man in the Iron Mask." For Parillaud, cinema is a way for her to escape from herself. Her life off-screen is too ordinary and mundane. Now, she can openly admit that film allows her to break the rules, be crazy, be different, be someone else.

The Iconic "Nikita"

The most notable role of Parillaud is undoubtedly Nikita. This cult character, known for her physical strength and sharpshooting skills, is the actress's most notable "protégé." Parillaud was drawn to Nikita primarily because of her emotional state, her unique psychological world that can be pondered over during moments of leisure.

The Influence of Luc Besson

Luc Besson played a significant role in both Parillaud's career and personal life. She briefly became his muse, and he became the father of her daughter, who will surely be inspired by Parillaud's acting career. When choosing roles, Parillaud follows her instincts, which rarely deceive her. Every action she takes on set is driven by love – love for her character and the film being created. When working with a director, Parillaud prefers not to think and instead fully surrender to her emotions. Emotions cannot be programmed.
