Pauline Cheviller grew up in Paris where she discovered theatre by enrolling in a workshop at school. In 2010, after a year of theatre training at Asnières Studio, she entered the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art. There, she attended Jean-Damien Barbin’s classes for three years. Also passionate about music, she took lessons in operatic singing. In parallel with her theatrical training, the young actress made her television debut in the series Mes Amis, Mes Amours, Mes Emmerdes (2010) and Léo Matteï, Brigade des mineurs (2013). She could then be seen on television with projects like: Mystère à l’Opéra (2015), Le Secret d’Elise (2014), Captain Marleau (2016); and at the theatre: in 2015, she plays in Vu du pont with Charles Berling and Caroline Proust, directed by Ivo Van Hove. In 2016, she collaborated with director Peter Sellars and played in Perséphone and Oedipus rex. In January 2016, she received the Jean-Jacques Gautier / Figaro Prize for Revelation of the Year.
