Showing up to WWD’s offices in flat sandals, a slouchy tweed jacket and striped button-down, her hair thrown into a topknot and sans makeup, Clémence Poésy is embodiment of chic French insouciance. It would be easy to hate her for exuding effortless cool so expertly, but it’s her lack of pretension that makes her likable. When she opens hermouth to speak about her latest film to hit American theaters this Friday, the British art house project “The Ones Below,” her accent is a mix of French and British, evidence of her lives in both cities.

“I’m French, but I’m not sure where I base myself really. I guess both Paris and London,” she says. She’s in Los Angeles for the week to see old friends and do a bit of promotion for the film, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.


“There’s not one drop of blood,” she says of the psychological thriller, about two pregnant couples living on different floors in the same building. “I thought it was a really interesting take on a moment in your life of having a new life to be responsible for and I found the way David [Farr, screenwriter and director] wrote the script incredibly smart and playful. The two women characters become close friends even if they are incredibly different, and then something goes wrong. The house they live in becomes almost a character,” she alludes.02~8.jpg

Poésy, 33, actually likes to keep people guessing. It’s hard to pinpoint her acting style, since she’s appeared in French, English, Italian and American productions as varied as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Parts 1 and 2,” “In Bruges” and “Gossip Girl.”

Clémence Poésy on her role as Elise in The Tunnel, Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter, the possibility of Brexit and why the Parisian actress loves spending time in London

Clémence Poésy has been a regular magazine fixture for decades, whether in glossy adverts for French designer fragrance Chloé, or papped in her everyday coveted style of ‘Parisian chic meets Dalston hipster’. Notably, she played Fleur Delacour in three of the Harry Potter films, Chloe in In Bruges, Rana in 127 Hours and Eva Coupeau in Gossip Girl.

Now, she’s focused on series two of Sky Atlantic police thriller, The Tunnel. Poésy stars as French detective Elise Wassermann who once again, teams up with English cop partner Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) to uncover a series of gruesome crimes and a plane crash in the English Channel and Channel Tunnel. It’s been hailed as the French version of The Bridge, a label Poésy is keen to shake off. There are certainly comparisons – both are gripping, emotionally charged and feature a socially awkward and promiscuous but brilliant female detective – but Poésy says this is where the similarities end and the show forms its own complex identity.

L’Express talked with Clémence (in french) about The Tunnel 2 (here):

Divided between the big and the small screen. Sometimes in France, sometimes elsewhere. Between films, Clémence Poésy reprised his role of Elise, a tortured cop, in season 2 Tunnel on Canal + from Monday night. At 33, Clémence Poésy, daughter of actor and director of theater Étienne Guichard and a French teacher, has spent half her life on camera. Growing up, she soon discovered the reality of this precarious profession, but also saw from her father the fun as much as her mother.

Acting satisfies her urge to tell stories and to tell stories about her characters. This is also the moment she prefers, the one where she built step by step into a new role. Since 1999, she had time to embody some. And learned from each of them.

The telefilm Gunpowder, Treason and Plot, where she played Mary Stuart, proved that she had a place in this business. The saga Harry Potter has placed on the media world and allowed her to access to other roles. Jeanne Captive finally gave her the feeling of playing in a movie as someone important. In season 2 The Tunnel, Clémence Poésy shows her character Elise, a tortured cop this time “going through something brutal, to face someone she was and that she had forgotten.” She found mostly the actor who most taught her, Stephen Dillane. “It has changed my way of working. This is someone who questions many things. He does not share a scene if doesn’t have all the answers, if he did not understand at all the nuances. So he creates different layers of depth and reading, and it is amazing to see. “

127 Hours

As one of the first movies Clemence did, still in french, she played a quiet girl who then surprised by not being as shy as she looked.
