Léa Hélène Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne (born 1 July 1985 in Paris, France), known professionally as Léa Seydoux, is a French actress. She's the granddaughter of Jérôme Seydoux, the owner of production and movie theater equipment company Pathé, and the niece of producer Michel 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 later played Bond girl Madeleine Swann in Spectre, a role she reprised in No Time to Die. On a trivia note, so far she's the only actor who can claim to have been in both the James Bond and Mission: Impossible (Ghost Protocol for the latter) film series.
