  Biography  

 early life
Born as Clémence Guichard in L'Haÿ-les-Roses a southern suburb of Paris, the daughter of actor/writer Étienne Guichard and a French teacher, Poésy took her mother's maiden name as her stage name. She was sent to an alternative school in Meudon. She was not the "popular girl" at school, and described herself as maladjusted and "a bit strange". Her father gave Poésy her first acting job when she was a child; then she had two lines at age 14. She has a younger sister, Maëlle Poésy-Guichard, who is also an actress.

 career
Since leaving La Source — the bilingual alternative school she attended at the age of 16 — Poesy has studied drama at Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique , 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 , for which she portrayed Mary, Queen of Scots, subsequently winning the 2005 Golden FIPA for actress in a TV Series and Serial.

In 2005, Poésy 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.

In 2008, Poesy starred in the Academy Award nominated film In Bruges, where she acted alongside Colin Farrell, and reunited with Harry Potter co-stars Ralph Fiennes and Brendan Gleeson. In 2009, Poésy appears in Heartless opposite Jim Sturgess. She reprised her role as Fleur Delacour in both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies.

As a model, Poésy has been featured in magazines, including the covers of i-D, twice on French magazine Jalouse, Australian's Yen, and Nylon. Since October 2007, Poesy has been one of three spokesmodels for the self-titled fragrance by Chloé, and has modeled in Gap's 2008 fall advertising campaign. In December 2011, Clémence has been chosen to be the new face of G-Star Raw.

She played Chuck Bass's new French girlfriend, Eva, in the fourth season of the CW hit show Gossip Girl. In 2010, Poesy also appeared alongside James Franco in 127 Hours, directed by Danny Boyle. 127 Hours was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12, 2010, following its premiere at the 2010 Telluride Film Festival.

In 2011, she appeared alongside Rupert Friend in Lullaby for Pi, a romantic drama which is Benoit Philippon’s directorial debut. The film is about a jazz singer who has just lost his wife and meets a mysterious woman (Poésy). Forest Whitaker also starred.

She will also be heard singing on the album Colour of the Trap by Miles Kane. She is featured on the track "Happenstance".
