Charlotte Le Bon
Charlotte Le Bon (born 4 September 1986) is a French Canadian actress, model and television presenter. She is known for her work in the Canal+ talk show Le Grand Journal, and the films Yves Saint Laurent, The Hundred-Foot Journey, and The Walk. Life and career Le Bon was born in Montreal in 1986 to Brigitte Paquette and Richard Le Bon, both actors. She began modelling at 16 years old and left Canada when she was 19 to model overseas. After spending brief periods in Tokyo and New York City, she eventually settled in Paris in 2011. She never enjoyed modelling, however, saying that "I was a model for eight years and really hated it." Soon after, she was cast in Le Grand Journal, a news- and pop culture-based talk show on the French television channel Canal+, appearing as the show's weather girl, "Miss Météo". After being cast on Le Grand Journal, Le Bon began to receive offers for acting parts in films. Her first film role was in the 2012 French comedy Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia. In 2013 she appeared in Mood Indigo and The Marchers, and in 2014 she starred as Yves Saint Laurent's muse Victoire Doutreleau in the biographical film Yves Saint Laurent. Her first role in an English-language film was in The Hundred-Foot Journey, a romantic comedy directed by Lasse Hallström in which she plays a chef-in-training at an upscale French restaurant alongside Helen Mirren. Le Bon was cast with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Walk, a film directed by Robert Zemeckis and based on Philippe Petit's famous tightrope walk in 1974, released in 2015. In 2015, she dubbed the voice of Joy in both the French and Quebec French dubs of the Pixar film Inside Out. She lives in Paris, and is bilingual in French and English.
