Léa Seydoux's small but perfectly formed vignettes in films for directors including Wes Anderson, Woody Allen and Quentin Tarrantino, as well as her campaigns for Prada's latest fragrance Candy, have made her one of France's most in-demand exports. Her nuanced Palme d'Or-winning performance in the lesbian love story Blue is the Warmest Colour, which became mirred in controversy surrounding director Abdellatif Kechiche's extremely demanding techniques, including graphic sex scenes shot over 10 days, brought her world-wide acclaim. Next year, as well as Spectre, Sam Mendes's follow-up to Skyfall opposit Daniel Craig, she will appear in cult greek director Yorgos Lanthimos's The Lobster, an "unconventional love story" set in a dystopian future where singletons who don't find a mate within 45 days are transformed into wild beasts.
