Early life[edit] Exarchopoulos grew up in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, near the Place des Fêtes. Her father, Didier Exarchopoulos, is a guitar teacher, and her mother, Marina Niquet, a nurse. Her paternal grandfather was Greek.[2][3] Career[edit] In 2006, Exarchopoulos was spotted by an agent and made her first television appearance in an episode of the French police series R.I.S, police scientifique. At thirteen, she had a role in the 2007 film Boxes.[2] She also appeared in the films Les Enfants de Timpelbach (2008), The Round Up (2010), Turk's Head (2010), Chez Gino (2011), Carré blanc (2011), Pieces of Me (2012) and I Used to Be Darker (2013).

She attracted international attention and critical acclaim for her performance in Blue Is the Warmest Colour, a 2013 film based on the 2010 French graphic novel of the same name.[4] The film won the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Exarchopoulos and co-star Léa Seydoux were awarded the Palme d'Or alongside director Abdellatif Kechiche, becoming the only women apart from director Jane Campion to have won the award;[5] Exarchopoulos is the youngest person to ever receive the award.[6] She received extensive critical praise and her performance was cited as one of the year's best.[7] IndieWire critic Eric Kohn stated that he believed Exarchopoulos' performance was the best female performance of 2013.[8] Her performance was praised for its "rawness."[9] Exarchopoulos discussed her process with The New York Times, explaining:

Abdellatif tried to keep us close to reality. He asked us to play with our own emotions. For example, I kept my own voice. It’s very subtle, very delicate, the things that are a part of you and the things that are a part of your character.

In March 2014, she was in consideration to play Tiger Lily in Pan but lost to Rooney Mara.[10] She then appeared in The Last Face alongside Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron, directed by Sean Penn, which premiered in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.[11] She plays Judith in the 2015 period drama film The Anarchists. She is to appear in Racer and the Jailbird, a film by Belgian film director Michaël R. Roskam,[12] and Orpheline,[13] a French film by director Arnaud des Pallières in 2017.[14][better source needed] Personal life[edit] Exarchopoulos is good friends with Léa Seydoux, her co-star in the movie Blue is the Warmest Colour. In March 2017, Exarchopoulos revealed that she was expecting a baby.[15] Filmography[edit]
