Cécile de France (born July 17, 1975, Namur) is a Belgian actress. She left Belgium at the age of 17 to go to Paris where she studied l'art dramatique for two years at Jean Paul Denizon while preparing the ENSATT (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Techniques du Théâtre), the "National Superior School of Arts and Techniques of Theatre". Accepted, she spent three years (from 1995 to 1998) attending the Département Comédie (Comedy Section) at first rue Blanche in Paris, then in Lyon.

She was discovered by the agent Dominique Besnehard and appeared in French cinema hits such as L'Art (délicat) de la séduction (2001) and Irène (2002).

Her international breakthrough came through the horror thriller Haute Tension (2003, UK title: Switchblade Romance, US title: High Tension), which was a worldwide success. She caught the eye of Hollywood producers and soon landed her first major role in a US feature, Around the World in 80 Days (2004), in which she starred alongside Jackie Chan.
