She was named twice as the best female newcomer for the Molière Award.
She has been twice nominated in 2001 for her role in Danny et la grande bleue and in 2004 for 84 Charing Cross Road for a Molière Award for best female newcomer. In 1991, she won a first role in Philippe Galland’s La Thune. She scattered castings with several appearances; Mathieu Kassovitz’s assassin(s), Cornuau’s Bouge and perhaps Kedric Klapish’s.
