Parents maiwenn: Sa mère, l’actrice Catherine Belkhodja, wanted to turn him into a vedette, whether by choice or by compulsion. Although the realism actor has finally committed himself to this programme, it has done so on his own terms and with his own means and will.
Mawenn Le Besco was born on April 17, 1976, in the Lilas neighbourhood of Seine-Saint-Denis. She is the eldest daughter of Isild Le Besco and Jowan Le Besco, and she has two half-sisters and one half-brother. His father, a Breton of Vietnamese ancestry, is not a thuggish person. Mawenn is eight years old when her parents decide to divorce. She then relocates with her mother to Belleville, which is located in the 20th arrondissement of Paris.
At this young age, and under the influence of her mother, the young lady has already received many casting calls for her acting career and has been cast in several roles. His first appearance in a film was in the 1981 film L’Année prochaine…si tout va biende Jean-Loup Hubert, in which he played a prochaine. In 1983, she appears as Isabelle Adjani, a little girl, in Jean Becker’s L’Eté meurtrier, in which she portrays the character of Isabelle Adjani. Herve Palud’s film La Gamine, starring Johnny Hallyday, was released in 1991, and she stars as La Gamine.
Mawenn will make her big screen debut on October 28th, five years after the release of Mon roi, in which she co-starred with Vincent Cassel in the role of a narcissistic pervert. This time, Polisse, the filmmaker, goes back to her roots in a feature film titled ADN, which marks the fifth feature film of her career behind the camera. The former wife of Luc Besson appears in this film, in contrast to her previous appearance in the same project.
She takes on the role of Neige, a divorced mother who is very close to his grandfather. Neige’s universe is completely thrown into disarray on the day when the family’s pilier is killed, and a family tempest descends upon her. The cast is completed by Fanny Ardant, Louis Garrel, Dylan Robert, and Marine Vacth, among others. As a result, after delving into the ups and downs of her acting career in Le bal des actrices and the ups and downs of her love life in Mon roi, Mawenn returns to the subject of family, which she had previously addressed in her first novel, Please Pardon Me.
Mawenn’s mother is not sufficiently present in the home, and she is often seen occupying the space left by her siblings and brothers. She considers herself to be almost an adult at the age of twelve. She leaves school at the end of the fifth grade. When she is 20 years old, she appears on the cover of 20 Ans, a fashion magazine aimed towards teenagers.
Un a plus tard, she has an encounter that would have a profound impact on her life: she meets Luc Besson. He is 32 years old, and she is 15 years old. They are, nevertheless, endearing. She marries him in 1992 and gives birth to their daughter, Shanna, the following year. The pair has set up shop in Beverly Hills. In 1996, she takes on the role of the blue diva from the Cinquième Elément.
Mawenn, on the other hand, returns to France when director Luc Besson falls in love with Milla Jovovich. It is at this point that she undergoes a psychanalysis and begins to work on the creation of a spectacle in the shape of an accounting rule with her family, with her mother being the focal point. In 2001, she performs her one-woman show, titled Le Pois chiche, on the stage of the Café de la Gare in Montreal. It has been a success.
