Early life and career

Bouchez is best known for her César Award's Most Promising Actress winning film Wild Reeds (1994) by André Téchiné, and the Best Actress Award for the film La Vie rêvée des anges at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.[1] She also won the Best Actress award for Poetical Refugee (original French title - La faute à Voltaire) at the Cologne Mediterranean Film Festival-2001.

In the fall of 2005, she joined the cast of the American TV series Alias for its fifth and final season. She played Renée Rienne, an assassin who works unofficially for a black ops division of the CIA. Although considered a main cast member, she only appeared in select episodes, her character acting as something of a "secret weapon". Bouchez has also guest starred on Showtime's lesbian drama series The L Word, where she portrays Claude, a French writer who meets Jenny on a trip to Canada.

Personal life

Bouchez lives in Beverly Hills, California with her husband Thomas Bangalter (of the electronic music duo Daft Punk) and their two children, Tara-Jay and Roxan. Songwriter David Mead wrote his song "Élodie" about her.
