At the age of two, VIRGINIE LEDOYEN (Francoise) received her first modeling assignment and at age nine was cast in her first film. That same year she enrolled in performing arts school in Paris. At age thirteen she starred in "Mima" with Nino Manfredi, directed by Philomène Esposito. In 1993 she appeared in Christian de Chalonge's "Le Voleur d'enfants," with Marcello Mastroianni, and Elie Chouraqui's "Les Marmottes" with Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Hugues Anglade.

Her breakthrough part came in Olivier Assayas' 1994 film "L' Eau froide" in which she played a troubled French teenager. Her next film was Claude Chabrol's "La Cérémonie" with Isabelle Huppert and Sandrine Bonnaire.

In 1995 she starred in Benoît Jacquot's "La Fille seule" for which she was nominated for the Most Promising Young Actress at the 1996 César Awards. Ledoyen next appeared in Edward Yang's "Mahjong," Gérard Krawczyk's "Héroïnes," and Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau's "Jeanne et le garçon formidable," which won first prize at the Paris Film Festival in 1998, with Ledoyen awarded best actress.

Most recently, Ledoyen appeared in James Ivory's "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries," Pierre Jolivet's "En Plein Coeur" and Olivier Assayas' "Fin août, début septembre."

Ledoyen will next star in "Les Miserables" with Gérard Depardieu and John Malkovich, directed by Josée Dayan, and she is currently shooting an as yet untitled film directed by Jean-François Richet.
