Date of Birth : Dec 19th 1964
She was working as a model when she met filmmaker Jean-Jacques Beineix. Beineix cast her in the lead role in the 1986 film 37°2 le matin (later released in the United Kingdom and United States under the title Betty Blue). She went on to appear in a series of major roles in French films. She is seen in a feature role in the 1991 music video “Move To Memphis” by Norwegian band a-ha.
She made her debut to American audiences in Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth in 1991. In 1997, she was cast in The Blackout, her first film made in the United States. The film itself was a commercial failure. She was cast to play opposite Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense in 1998. However, she lost the part when she was denied a work permit as an “undesirable immigrant” because of her arrest record. 1998 also saw the break up of Dalle’s engagement to actor Alessandro Gassman when he unexpectedly married another woman.
In 2001, Dalle appeared in the controversial film, Trouble Every Day, in which she played a cannibal. More recently, she starred in A l’intérieur, in which she played a cruel psychopath stalking a pregnant woman. On 3 January 2005 she married Guénaël Meziani, a prison inmate.
