Best known as: Wizard Fleur Delacour in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Clémence Poésy played Fleur Delacour, a rival to young wizard Harry Potter, in the 2005 film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. A wispy and blue-eyed blonde from a theatrical family, Clemence Poésy was not unknown to British audiences: she had played Mary, Queen of Scots in the 2004 BBC miniseries Gunpowder, Treason and Plot. As Fleur Delacour in Goblet of Fire she takes part in the Triwizard Tournament, along with Harry (played by Daniel Radcliffe), Viktor Krum (played by Stanislav Ianevski) and the always dashing Cedric Diggory (played by Robert Pattinson). Poésy has also appeared in the French films Olgas Sommer (2003), Bienvenue chez les Rozes (2003) and Le Grand Meaulnes (2006), in the dark comedy In Bruges (2008, as love interest to Colin Farrell), and as James Franco's former girlfriend in the climber-cutting-off-his-own-arm drama 127 Hours (2010). She also appeared in the sequels Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011), and guest-starred in several episodes of the TV series Gossip Girl (starring Blake Lively).
Extra credit: Reports of Clemence Poésy's birth year vary; however, in a 2004 interview with the BBC, she reported celebrating her 21st birthday while filming Gunpowder, Treason and Plot in 2003. She said she was born in October of 1982 in an interview with Elleadore TV... Clemence Poésy and Fleur Delacour did not appear in the fifth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).
