Camille Cottin as "Virginie"

Camille Cottin joined the theater and drama school Jean Périmony at the age of 17. After that, she worked with the team from the Theatre du Voyageur in Paris for two years and took part in numerous shows with the actors and directors she met over the years.

She worked several times under the direction of Régis Santon at the Sylvia Montfort Theater. During this time, she met Camille Chamoux, as they starred together in Love and Fish, directed by Israel Horovitz. She also joined La troupe à Palmade in 2012 and participated in several shows under the direction of Pierre Palmade.

Cottin met Eloise Lang and Noémie Saglio at the start of the project Connasse in which she held the lead role. A few months later, Canal + bought the series, and 70 episodes later, they shot the feature film together.

In 2015, she played one of the main characters in the series Call My Agent (Dix pour cent), which was broadcast in France and worldwide via Netflix. Between 2015 and 2016, Cottin appeared in various films: Iris, directed by Jalil Lespert, Allied, directed by Robert Zemeckis and Cigarettes and Hot Chocolate, directed by Sophie Reine where she held the female lead role alongside Gustave Kervern. She also lent her voice to Félicie’s character in the animated film Ballerina.

In 2017, she starred in Noémie Saglio’s feature film Like Mother, Like Girl (Telle mère, telle fille), alongside Juliette Binoche and Lambert Wilson, and resumed her role in Season 2 of Call My Agent. She also directed L’Esprit De Contradication, the one-woman show starring Camille Chamoux (which was performed in Paris and on tour). In 2018, Cottin starred in Larguees, the comedy, directed by Eloise Lang, with Miou-Miou and Chamoux; Big Bang, directed by Cécilia Rouaud, alongside Jean-Pierre Bacri and Vanessa Paradis; and in Les Fauves, directed by Vincent Mariette, alongside Lilly-Rose Depp.

In 2019, she starred alongside Fabrice Luchini in the popular film directed by Rémi Bezançon Le Mystere D’Henri Pick and became the French Fleabag in the Canal + adaptation of the popular British series directed by Jeanne Herry. She also was cast as the character Helène on season three of the acclaimed series Killing Eve.

Recent feature film appearances include the Cédric Klapish film Deux Moi and Christophe Honoré’s On a Magical Night, which premiered in Cannes. Camille will return as Andréa in Call My Agent for the fourth and final season.
