Noemie Lenoir

Noemie Lenoir first became known to American audiences when Brett Ratner cast her in the romantic thriller, After the Sunset.

Born in the French suburbs, Lenoir was discovered while standing in line at the post office at the age of sixteen. After securing her first major campaign, for the retailer Gap, Lenoir relocated to New York. She quickly began working with world renowned photographers Steven Meisel, Gilles Bensimon, Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino for top fashion magazines and campaigns such as Ralph Lauren, H&M, Tommy Hillfiger and Victoria's Secret. She has since become a spokesperson for L'Oreal Paris where she is currently representing the prestigious beauty brand as member of the Dream Team Ambassadresses of the World (alongside megastars Beyonce Knowles and Scarlett Johansson).

In 2002, Lenoir gained her first role, as a courtesan, in Alain Chabat's Asterix et Obelix: Mission Cleopatre, starring Jamel Debbouze, Gerard Depardieu and Monica Bellucci. Roles followed in films such as Gomez and Tavares, directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner; and The Valet, directed by Francis Veber, with Gad Elmaleh and Alice Taglioni. She is set to return for the sequel to Gomez and Tavares later this year.

For television, Lenoir co-produced and animated the Trace TV series Code, which celebrated urban fashion, music and art from around the world. She also appeared in the miniseries Jeff et Leo, Flics et Jumeaux, starring Olivier Sitruk.

Lenoir is an active spokesperson for the World Wildlife Fund, working for the preservation of animals and fauna in all the French islands. She is the proud mother of a beautiful son named Kelyan.
