At just 21 years old, Paris-born Exarchopoulos has not been acting for very long but she’d cut her teeth with several film roles before bursting into notoriety with her starring role in the acclaimed 2013 filmBlue is the Warmest Color.
In the film, which was nominated for a number of awards from different organizations, Exarchopoulos portrays a young teenage girl who forms a deep emotional and sexual connection with an older girl whom she meets at a lesbian bar. The movie was considered by many critics as a deep and powerful look at a particular type of intense relationship and the acting of Exarchopoulos and her costar Lea Seydoux was also widely praised.
Just as the film exuded sensuality, so too does its young star. Despite her youth, Exarchopoulos’ looks emanate a kind of playful seductiveness, the same kind of mystique as Jemima West but with a more adventurousness and boldness to it.
It’s hard to explain what exactly makes her attractive — perhaps it’s her dark features, or perhaps it’s the fact that even though she could pass for much younger than 21, the seriousness of her expressions could convince you she’s much older — but what’s not hard to explain is why audiences will be seeing much more of the young actresses’ face and talent.
Exarchopoulos has three projects currently in the works and since her career has really just started, it is likely that there will be more to come.
