French actress Julie Delpy progressed from ingenue roles to become one of the most respected members of the international film community. A native of Paris, and raised in an acting family, she began her career while still a teenager with a small role in Jean-Luc Godard's "Detective" (1985). Roles followed in French films, including "Beatrice" (1987) and "The Dark NIght of the Soul" (1989). She found international acclaim for her role in "Europa, Europa" (1990), playing a pro-Nazi German who falls in love with a Jewish man. After starring opposite Sam Shephard in the French film "Voyager" (1991), Delpy began moving more into English language roles. She starred in Roger Avary's thriller "Killing Zoe" (1993), and then joined the all-star cast of Disney's "The Three Musketeers" (1993). At the same time, she starred in Krzysztof Kieslowski's trilogy "Three Colors: Blue" (1993), "Three Colors: White" (1994), and "Three Colors: Red" (1994). She then took what many considered her signature role, starring in Richard Linklater's romantic drama "Before Sunrise" (1995). She played Celine, a young woman who spends an evening in Vienna with Ethan Hawke's American writer, Jesse. She continued mixing American studio films like "An American Werewolf in Paris" (1997) and "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) with international productions such as "The Treat" (1998) and "Beginner's Luck" (2001). She also joined the American television hit "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009) for a memorable storyline, playing the girlfriend of Goran Visnjic's doctor. She rejoined Linklater and Hawke for the director's experimental animated film "Waking Life" (2001). The trio then began working on a sequel to "Before Sunrise." They shared writing credit on the resulting "Before Sunset" (2004), which saw the two original characters brought back together in France. The script earned them an Academy Award nomination. In addition to screenwriting, Delpy made her feature directorial debut with "Looking for Jimmy" (2002). She went on to write and direct multiple features, including the critically acclaimed "2 Days in Paris" (2007), "The Countess" (2009), and "Lolo" (2015). Delpy joined forces on more time with Hawke and Linklater for "Before Midnight" (2013), exploring what happened to Celine and Jesse after they entered into a relationship. The trio were once again nominated for an Academy Award for the script. Besides acting in films that she wrote or directed, Delpy continued working as an actress in films including "The Bachelors" (2017) and "Burning Shadows" (2018). She continued her filmmaking career with "My Zoe" (2019), which she wrote, directed, and starred in.
