In 1981, Sophie Marceau made her singing debut with French singer François Valrry on tbe record "Dream in Blue", written by Pierre Delanoe. It wasn't long before Marceau became a film star in Europe with a string of successful films, and she quickly became an international film star with her performances in 'Braveheart' (1995),, 'Firelight' (1997), and the 19th James Bond film 'The World Is Not Enough' (1999).
In 1995, Marceau wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, Menteuse (the English translation, Telling Lies, was published in 2001). Her work was described as "an exploration of female identity".
The following collection of photographs show Marceau in the 1980s at the formative stages of her music and cinema career.
