Céleste Brunnquell



“There is a lot of free­dom in con­straints. When every­thing is pos­si­ble, you even­tu­al­ly don’t do much.”

Born in Paris, Céleste Brun­nquell began dra­ma class­es at age 11. In 2018, she was dis­cov­ered dur­ing an act­ing ses­sion at the Théâtre de l’Atelier by direc­tor Sarah Suco, who cast­ed her as the lead in her first fea­ture film, The Daz­zled (2019). Thanks to her laud­ed per­for­mance, she won the Youth Jury Award for Best Actress – the Gold­en Sala­man­der – at the 28th edi­tion of the Sar­lat Film Fes­ti­val. She was also nom­i­nat­ed for the 2020 César Award for Most Promis­ing Actress. She went on to per­form in Arte series In Treat­ment, direct­ed by Éric Toledano and Olivi­er Nakache. She just fin­ished film­ing Sébastien Marnier’s L’Origine du mal, and Les Clés de Jade, the direc­to­r­i­al fea­ture debut of Jeanne Aslan and Paul Saintillan.
