Mélanie Laurent | Acting is Only the Beginning

While Mélanie Laurent is currently an extremely in-demand actress, she is far from resting on her laurels. Her director on Beginners, Mike Mills, described her as “the most on-fire jazz improviser,” a very apt description given that music is another creative passion. Summer 2011 sees not only the release of Beginners but also of En T’Attendant, Laurent's first album, on which she collaborates with Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice. "He taught me everything about being a musician,” she tells the Irish Herald. Of course, she also told Screencrave that working with directors, like Quentin Tarantino and Mike Mills, have made her want to be a director,  “because that is the best job ever.” In 2008, Laurent wrote and directed the short film De moins en moins and contributed a segment to the anthology film X Femmes, and she is currently planning her first full-length feature as director.
