Known for her great talent and ethereal beauty, Julie Delpy is a true artist in every sense of the word. Fluent in French, English and Italian, Julie has made a name for herself as an actress, singer, writer in Europe and the U.S. She was recently nominated for an Academy Award as a writer along with her co-writers Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater for "Before Sunset," a film which she also starred in. The Warner Independent Film "Before Sunset," was a follow-up to its successful predecessor "Before Sunrise." First lauded at the Berlin film festival, "Before Sunset" opened in the states to some of the most outstanding reviews of the year. Last August Julie was seen in Focus Features "Broken Flowers" which was written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. Julie starred alongside Jessica Lange, Francis Conroy, and Bill Murray. Delpy recently wrapped production on John Stimpson's "The Legend of Lucy Keyes" in which she stars opposite Justin Theroux. Next up you can catch Delpy in Lassse Hallstrom's "The Hoax" a story about Clifford Irving, the man who wrote and sold a bogus biography of Howard Hughes. Julie will star opposite Richard Gere as Irvings wife. Since the tender age of 14, Julie has worked with some of the world's most esteemed and intellectual directors, including Jean-Luc Godard for "Detective," Agneiszka Holland for "Europa Europa," Krzysztof Kieslowski for the trilogy "Trois Couleurs," and Quentin Tarantino for "Killing Zoe" as the lead opposite Eric Stoltz. Her list of directors is as versatile as her talents and her films. Other film credits include Bertrand Tavernier's "The Passion of Beatrice," Carlos Saura's "The Dark Night," and Voker Schlondorff's "Voyager." Julie's affinity for acting can be attributed to her parents, both of whom are actors. Her love for acting has also inspired her to begin directing. In 1997, Julie inspired by her work with Jean-Luc Godard, made her directorial debut with the short film, "Blah Blah Blah" which was shown at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival. Aside from directing, Julie is also a talented songwriter and singer. In 2000, Julie began writing her self-titled debut album "Julie Delpy". Much like her personality, the album gives a fragile balance between fluid softness and sheer vendetta.
