came to international attention with her screen debut in Jean-Jacques Annaud
's art-house hit, The Lover
, the story of a young woman in 1920s Saigon caught up in an obsessive affair with a man twice her age. A native of Middlesex, England, March was already a top model at the time of her motion-picture debut, having graced the pages of fashion magazines since she was 15. (Director Annaud had seen March in her layout for Just Seventeen magazine while he was searching for an actress to portray the lead in the screen adaptation of Marguerite Duras' semi-autobiographical novel.)
The life-changing experience of working on Annaud's film and subsequently touring the world giving press interviews convinced her to pursue an acting career. She followed The Lover with starring roles in The Color of Night (opposite Bruce Willis), Provocateur and Never Ever.
