Christa Theret

France

Credits: “La Brindille” (2011), “Freeway” (2011), “Renoir” (2012)

The gamine Theret has been acting professionally since her early teens, but really caught the attention with her role in Emmanuelle Millet’s “La Brindille” as a pregnant student who wants to give her baby up for adoption. The jury said, “We loved the maturity of her interpretation in ‘La Brindille.’ She is a very precise actress, who is able to go very deep and avoid the easy trap of acting too sentimentally. She offers a shining mix of fragility, melancholy and charisma.”
