PHILIPPINE

Leroy-Beaulieu started her acting career landing roles in such films as "Surprise Party" (1982), the comedy "Trois hommes et un couffin" (1986) with Roland Giraud and the crime picture "Flag" (1987) with Richard Bohringer. She also appeared in "Camomille" (1988) and "Les Possedes" (1988). She continued to act in productions like "Natalia" (1989), the comedy "Les Cles du Paradis" (1991) with Gérard Jugnot and "Coupable d'Innocence" (1992).

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, a.k.a. Sylvie of “Emily in Paris,” spills the beans on acting the part of a French femme fatale. (Source: www.nytimes.com PARIS — France may have gone back into lockdown last month, but it still has an international ambassador on small screens everywhere thanks to the actress Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, a.k.a. Sylvie Grateau in the love-to-hate-it Netflix series “Emily in Paris.” As the head of a luxury marketing agency who overdresses, smokes, mocks political correctness and oozes meanness, she is the extreme version of the “Parisienne,” disseminating style and scorn in equal measure. (Source:www.nytimes.com))

She landed the role of Sylvie in “Emily in Paris” by chance. Darren Star, the creator of “Emily in Paris,” asked Juliette Ménager, an international casting agent, to find an actress to play Sylvie — the most challenging part of all the French roles Ms. Ménager had to cast. “I told her, ‘Listen Philippine, you’re too old,” Ms. Ménager said. “But energy-wise you don’t look your age, so why don’t we try?’” (Source: www.nytimes.com)

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu is a French actress who is well known for appearing in multiple French TV series and films, like Trois hommes et un couffin (1985), Neuf Mois (1994), Natalia (1988), and Call My Agent (2015).

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu was born on Thursday, April 25, 1963 (age 57 years; as of 2020) in Rome, Italy. She grew up in Rome, and at the age of sixteen, she moved to Paris to pursue a career in acting after her parents had divorced. In Paris, she pursued a two-year acting course and simultaneously worked in a few commercials to earn a living.

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu was born on April 25, 1963 in Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine, France. She is an actress, known for Call My Agent! (2015), Two Brothers (2004) and Neuf mois (1994).

If you grow up in Paris with a mother who is head of accessories at Dior, your teenage years are guaranteed to be more glamorous than most. Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu doesn’t disappoint in this department. Over Zoom, the Emily in Paris and Call My Agent! star – whose father is the famous French actor Philippe Leroy-Beaulieu – describes how as a schoolgirl she would spend afternoons at the Dior atelier, and then in the evenings pilfer her mother Françoise’s silk scarves, chunky necklaces and platform heels to go dancing in the nightclubs of Saint-Germain. (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu playing Sylvie in Emily in Paris Credit: Netflix (Source:ww.telegraph.co.uk)))

‘I was there at Dior hanging out with the models all the time,’ Philippine says. ‘As a girl going through puberty, it was disturbing in some ways as they were so beautiful and I felt like s—t. But at the same time there was this very feminine tribal atmosphere that I loved. The clothes were wonderful: it was the era of disco then, and it was all about glamour and standing out.’ (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk Philippine with Lily Collins in Emily in Paris Credit: Netflix (Source:www.telegraph.co.uk wAnd yet, unlike Sylvie, Philippine sees that glossy French fashion world with clear – and often surprisingly critical – eyes. Maybe this is because she spent her early childhood in Rome, moving to Paris aged 11 when her parents got divorced. Once there, she was ridiculed at school because she made mistakes in written French, and her fellow students – and even sometimes her teachers – would call her names and treat her like an outsider. (Source:ww.telegraph.co.uk)))

Philippine has nonetheless made Paris her home and tells me she lives alone in an apartment behind a church in the 7th arrondissement. Her long and varied career in France won her a Cesar nomination for Trois Hommes et un Couffin – a huge hit domestically that was remade in America as Three Men and a Baby – and also saw her play an assassin in the French Revolution and a Polish refugee during the Second World War. Then in 2015 she appeared in Call My Agent!, little guessing that, fast-forward five years, it would become an international Netflix sensation during the pandemic. The show focuses on four film industry agents and their starry clients, with Philippine playing Catherine Barneville, the rich, beautiful wife of the most senior agent who – surprise, surprise – has a wandering eye. (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)

In the meantime, Philippine gave us Emily in Paris’s Sylvie, a bitchy but impossibly chic marketing executive, who treats her American employee with disdain. And, naturellement, it was Philippine’s mother who helped her prepare for it. ‘My mother was so beautiful and stylish that I think I felt a bit intimidated by her world when I was young,’ she says of Françoise, who sadly died last year. ‘I didn’t want to work in fashion and I rejected the whole industry for a while – but I can also see now that I was completely influenced by her in a very unconscious way. She taught me so much about taste, which was why when I read the script for the role of Sylvie, I thought, “I know you, I can play you.”’ (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)

Sylvie is the most memorable character in the show (which has just started filming its second season) and some of that is because you can see the vulnerability lurking beneath her flinty exterior. ‘I’ve known women like that since I was 13, so it was simple for me to understand the jealousy, the fear of being old and of someone coming to take your job when you’ve given everything to your career,’ says Philippine. ‘She’s right to kick Emily’s ass because Emily is really arrogant. But really, Sylvie is full of all these negative emotions because she is scared. Women as they age in that world, it’s difficult – they get looked at as disposable goods.’ (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk Props helped. Once she was confirmed for the role, Philippine unearthed some of the jewellery her mother designed and wore it on set: cuff bracelets, an amethyst pendant, and a large, angel-shaped gold brooch. As well as the accessories, she tried to capture that ‘mean-on-the-outside attitude that Sylvie has – and that my mother had too. In fashion in Paris you had to be mean – you had to bite.’ (Source:www.telegraph.co.uk))

And yet Philippine is now 58 and has found more international success recently than she ever did in her 20s and 30s, particularly in Call My Agent!. ‘I love it; it’s so different and so French,’ she says. ‘Catherine is sophisticated but there was something about her and the fact that she lost some of her power as she aged that made me sad – I wanted her to have revenge in season four but we couldn’t because I was shooting Emily in Paris at the exact same time.’ (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)

Age keeps cropping up – including the fact that Sylvie was originally meant to be played by an actor in her late 30s. Philippine’s understanding of the role no doubt helped her win the part despite being nearly two decades older, but there is also something youthful about her. This is particularly clear when the conversation moves to MeToo. She has a view on it that is markedly different to the ‘let men be men’ attitude sometimes expressed by French women of her generation. (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu in 1994 Credit: Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images (Source:www.telegraph.co.uk))

She does, however, admit that she enjoyed dressing in an overtly sexy way for Emily, has a love of Rick Owens tailoring and Tod’s boots, and is excited to be collaborating with Alaïa and Roger Vivier in the next season of the show. It may seem a bit of a contradiction but it’s all part of Philippine’s charm – she casts a sharp, often amusing, eye over the world and describes it exactly how she finds it – a trait clearly inherited from her mother.

And yet Philippine is now 58 and has found more international success recently than she ever did in her 20s and 30s, particularly in Call My Agent!. ‘I love it; it’s so different and so French,’ she says. ‘Catherine is sophisticated but there was something about her and the fact that she lost some of her power as she aged that made me sad – I wanted her to have revenge in season four but we couldn’t because I was shooting Emily in Paris at the exact same time.’ (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)

Age keeps cropping up – including the fact that Sylvie was originally meant to be played by an actor in her late 30s. Philippine’s understanding of the role no doubt helped her win the part despite being nearly two decades older, but there is also something youthful about her. This is particularly clear when the conversation moves to MeToo. She has a view on it that is markedly different to the ‘let men be men’ attitude sometimes expressed by French women of her generation. (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk We discuss the difference in French and British attitudes to not only MeToo but seduction and ageing. ‘In the Anglo-Saxon world, there are a lot more roles for older women than in France,’ she says. ‘In France, you’re either a whore or a mother, and we know where that leaves someone of my age. It’s quite dogmatic and all based on appearance – and, yes, that’s probably because of fashion. But I’m tired of this whole myth of Paris and being seductive. There’s not a lot of space for expression of something else when your worth is based around how desirable people find you.’ (Source:www.telegraph.co.uk))

Is there anything better than a binge-worthy Netflix show? I’ll answer that for you: no, there’s not! Emily In Paris is everyone’s latest obsession, and while we’re excited to cozy up on the couch and watch all ten episodes, we’re curious to know more about the cast of mostly French actors and actresses starring in the show, like Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays the character of Sylvie. (Source: www.yourtango.com)Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu is a French actress who was born in Rome, Italy on April 25, 1962, which makes her a Taurus. Although she grew up in Italy, she moved to Paris when she was just 16 years old to pursue a career in acting. Her father, Phillippe Leroy-Beaulieu, who is also an actor, didn’t want her to follow in his footsteps. She obviously didn’t listen to him and thanks to her gut-decision as a teen to follow her dream, she’s now starring in what’s set to be a Netflix cult classic. (Source: www.yourtango.com)

Was Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu a photographer in another life? The French beauty not only looks amazing in front of the camera but takes some incredible shots behind the lens, too! Her Instagram profile is flooded with beautiful pictures of nature, architecture, and of course, all of the amazing sights France has to offer. (Source: www.yourtango.com)

She starred in the title role of the French film Natalia, which was screened at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, a.k.a. Sylvie of “Emily in Paris,” spills the beans on acting the part of a French femme fatale. (Source:www.nytimes.com))

And though she inhabits the role so completely that it has made her into a star at 57, Ms. Leroy-Beaulieu has some very definite feelings about the myth of what she calls “the French bitch”: what is fact, what is fiction and what is worth considering. It’s a useful reminder that, while stereotypes are easy to sell — the French have described the series as a ragout of ridiculous clichés — the more complicated reality is often better.
