 Who is Camille Cottin?




Camille Cottin didn’t come from a family of artists, but always wanted to be an actress. Her family was always very supportive of her dream of being a movie star. Camille Cottin’s parents asked her first to finish a more traditional education before trying her luck in the movie industry. She received a master’s degree in English, after studying for a few years in England. There she developed her love for acting and for the English language, and would often go see plays in London. Waiting for her big breakout, she first started to teach English in a French junior high school. At the same time, she made her debut on stage. She played in both classic plays from Corneille and Boulgakov as well as comedy plays. In 2009, she became a regular in a cabaret showcasing young comedians and upcoming stand-ups. During that time, she landed small roles in TV series. She appeared in low budget daytime TV movies as well as on famous French cop shows PJ and Femme de loi. She also landed her very first Hollywood role in… a TV ad! She was cast in an advert for the Japanese market directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou), featuring Brad Pitt!


Everything changed in 2013, when she rose to fame for playing a capricious Parisian woman in the Canal+ hidden camera-sketches series Connasse (translated for the US market as The Parisian Bitch!). Her character, Connasse, was a huge success and brought her significant mainstream success in France. For two years, she voluntarily became the most hated French person.


If the sketch comedy brought her her first success, it was her role in Call My Agent! that made her a household name. The show debuted on France 2 in 2015 and quickly became a hit, with Cottin’s performance as the lead character earning her critical acclaim. Camille Cottin was awarded an International Emmy for Best Actress for this role. The show was later picked up by Netflix and gained an international audience. Cottin’s performance in Call My Agent! has earned her international recognition and has made her one of the most sought-after actresses in France, England and America. Brits loved the show for how outspoken it was, and how ‘French’ its characters were. In 2017, Camille Cottin went to Kilkenny in Ireland for a casting director festival. That’s when she suddenly realized people in the industry recognized her. This trip to the United Kingdom with her agent proved to be great for networking. There she met the casting director for the hit BBC show Killing Eve. She later joined the third and fourth season of the show as one of the main characters.

Camille Cottin's Hollywood debut was in the 2016 romantic thriller film Allied directed by Robert Zemeckis, which starred Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. In the film, she played a small but memorable role as Monique, a French resistance member who helps Pitt's character during World War II. Her performance was well-received by audiences and critics alike, and helped her gain recognition in Hollywood. Cottin's next notable Hollywood role was in the 2021 film Stillwater directed by Tom McCarthy, where she played a French actress named Virginie. The film starred Matt Damon as a father who travels to Marseille, France to clear his daughter's name after she is imprisoned for a murder she claims she did not commit. Cottin's performance in the film once again earned her critical acclaim and further established her as a rising star in Hollywood.

Cottin's Hollywood career reached new heights when she was cast in the crime drama House of Gucci directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator). The film is based on the true story of the murder of Maurizio Gucci, the former head of the Gucci fashion house.. The film boasted an impressive ensemble cast, including Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, and Al Pacino. House of Gucci was released in November 2021 and scored really well at the box office across the world.

Although she spends more and more time in Hollywood, her career in France is far from over. She’s been cast in as many comedies as she has dramas. One in particular brought her much attention from critics: The Dazzled (Les éblouis). In this movie about a family drawn into a cult, Camille Cottin delivers a powerful performance as the mother, totally under the spell of the cult, who cannot even see she’s no longer being a mother to her young teenager. The movie The Dazzled is currently available on TV5MONDE, alongside most of Camille Cottin recent French movies like Premières Vacances, Le mystère Henri Pick, Deux moi.
