She also made her mark as a model, sashaying in the fashion circles of Montreal, New York, and Tokyo, endorsing apparels and related accessories of topnotch agencies. She eventually moved to Paris—the fashion capital of the world—and settled down in the city in 2011. Shortly after, she debuted on the small screen, successfully auditioning for the role of “Miss Météo”, the weather presenter in the talk show, ‘Le Grand Journal’ promoted by the French TV channel, Canal+. Periodic appearances on televised shows opened the floodgates of the French film industry for her as she bagged minor roles as a supporting actress in movies like ‘Le Gout du Temps’, and ‘Impossible’. Charlotte received her first major break in the silver screen in 2012 when she was offered the part of Ophélia in ‘Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia’, a French comedy movie.

Charlotte Le Bon commenced her professional career in 2002 as a model when she was just a 16 year-old teenager. After representing a string of modeling agencies in Canada for three years in a row, she went abroad to make her presence felt in the global fashion circles. Following short spells in New York City and Tokyo she flew down to Paris, the Mecca of fashion designers and trendy boutiques, in 2011, and eventually made the city her home away from home.
Despite devoting eight years to modeling, she went on record by candidly admitting in numerous interview sessions with magazines and periodicals that she abhorred the profession. An opportunity to give a fresh lease of life to her career came her way in 2010. She was selected to feature as a weather presenter-cum-standup comedienne in the French TV channel Canal +’s popular talk show, ‘Le Grand Journal’.
Her melodramatic presentation and side-splitting antics in the TV program ‘Le Grand Journal’ based on current affairs and pop culture attracted the attention of big screen luminaries in France. She was offered short roles in French movies including ‘Impossible’ (2010) and ‘The Stroller Strategy’ (2012) where she featured as Marie Deville. She appeared in a brief role as the LifeMart saleswoman in the film ‘Le Gout du Temps’ in 2007 which incidentally was her debut movie.
In 2012, she bagged a prominent part in the French comedy film, ‘Asterix and Obelix: Save Britannia’ where she enacted the character of Ophelia. The 2013 saw Charlotte portraying the characters of Isis, Natacha, and Claire in the movies ‘Mood Indigo’, ‘The Big Bad Wolf’, and ‘The Marchers’ respectively. The year 2014 turned out to be immensely prospective for her as she received an invitation from the legendary film director, Steven Spielberg, to play the part of Marguerite in ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’.
‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’ was Charlotte’s first Hollywood film where she starred opposite renowned film personalities, such as Helen Mirren and Om Puri. She earned a Cesar Award nomination for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for her poignant depiction of Victoire Doutreleau, the love interest of Yves Saint Laurent in the biopic based on the celebrated fashion-designer.
In 2015, Le Bon starred in ‘The Walk’—her second Hollywood flick—where she represented Annie Allix, a Parisian street performer. 2016 was extremely prolific for Charlotte as she was included in the main cast of five films, namely ‘Arctic Heart’, ‘Bastille Day’, ‘Anthropoid’, ‘The Promise’, and ‘Iris’. Charlotte’s heartrending portrayal of Ana in the historical drama movie, ‘The Promise’ was highly praised by public and critics though the film bombed at the box office.
