About Clémence Poésy : Clemence Poesy (born 30 October 1982) is a French actress and fashion model. After starting on the stage as a child, Poesy had dramatic education, and has been active in both film and television since 1999, including some English-language productions.

She is known for the roles of Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter film series, Chloe in In Bruges, and Rana in 127 Hours. She is also known for her small role as Eva Coupeau on Gossip Girl. Born as Clemence Guichard in L'Hay-les-Roses a southern suburb of Paris, the daughter of actor/writer Etienne Guichard and a French teacher, Poesy took her mother's maiden name as her stage name.

 She was sent to an alternative school in Meudon. She was not popular at school, and described herself as maladjusted. In an interview she said she can seem "a bit strange". Her father gave Poesy her first acting job when she was a child; then she had two lines at age 14.

She has a younger sister, Maelle Poesy-Guichard, who is also an actress. Since leaving La Source — the bilingual alternative school she attended at the age of 16 — Poesy has studied drama at Conservatoire National Superieur d'Art Dramatique (CNSAD) (French National Academy of Dramatic Arts), the Atelier International de Blanche Salant et Paul Weaver, and the University of Nanterre, where she has since appeared in a number of French film, television, and stage productions.

 Her first English-speaking role was in the BBC mini-series Gunpowder, Treason & Plot (2004), for which she portrayed Mary, Queen of Scots, subsequently winning the 2005 Golden FIPA for actress in a TV Series and Serial.

In 2005, Poesy appeared in the Harry Potter franchise as Fleur Delacour in The Goblet of Fire, and between 2006 and 2007 she starred in a number of film and television productions including the 2007 mini-series War and Peace.
