Léa Hélène Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne (born 1 July 1985 in Paris, France), known professionally as Léa Seydoux, is a French actress.

She has family ties to the two oldest and biggest French film production companies (and oldest in the world), being the granddaughter of Jérôme Seydoux, the owner and CEO of Pathé, the niece of film producer Michel Seydoux and the grand-niece of Gaumont's CEO Nicolas Seydoux.

She first came to attention after she was nominated for the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance in The Beautiful Person (2008) and later for a second time for her role in Belle Épine (2010), and the César Award for Best Actress for Farewell, My Queen (2012). In 2013, she came to international attention when she was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in the critically acclaimed lesbian romance film Blue Is the Warmest Color.

She's become one of the most prominent French actresses to be cast in Hollywood productions along the likes of Marion Cotillard, starting with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. She later played the Second Love of Daniel Craig's James Bond, Madeleine Swann, in Spectre and No Time to Die. On a trivia note, this made her, so far, the only actor who can claim to have been in both the James Bond and Mission: Impossible film series.

She is in a relationship with French model André Meyer and gave birth to their son on January 18th, 2017.
