VANESSA PARADIS (Avigal) is a celebrated French singer, model and actress. Born in Saint-Maur-des Fosses, Paradis started her singing career appearing on TV when she was 8, recorded her first single at 11, and had an international hit record, "Joe le taxi,” successful in fifteen countries, at the age of 14. Paradis has continued to release albums every few years up until the present day. She has modeled frequently, notably in Jean-Paul Goude's famous "Bird in a Cage" video as the Face of Chanel.

Paradis made her film debut at 17 in NOCE BLANCHE (1989), for which she won the Cesar Award for Most Promising Actress. She followed this success with ELISA, PLEASURE (AND ITS LITTLE INCONVENIENCES, voice), UN AMOUR DE SORCIeRE, with Jeanne Moreau and Jean Reno, UNE CHANCE SUR DEUX, with Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo, and Patrice LeConte's GIRL ON THE BRIDGE, for which she was nominated for the Best Actress Cesar, and which was successfully released in the United States by Paramount Classics. Her subsequent films include LOST IN LA MANCHA, ATOMIK CIRCUS and MON ANGE. After appearing in this last film in 1999, Paradis took five years off from acting, coming back with THE RETURN OF JAMES BATTLE, MY ANGEL, SPRUNG! THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT (animated, voice), LE SOLDAT ROSE (TV), THE KEY, HEARTBREAKER, A MONSTER IN PARIS, CAFe DE FLORE (Genie Award , Jutra Award, and Vancouver Film Critics Awards for Best Actress), DUBAÏ FLAMINGO, JE ME SUIS FAIT TOUT PETIT, and CORNOUILLE.
