The Canadian-born, Paris-based Charlotte Le Bon’s birthdate is September 4, 1986. She was raised in her hometown of Montreal by her actor parents Brigitte Paquette and Richard Le Bon. Details about Le Bon’s educational background have not been disclosed.
Interestingly, the actress started out as a model, as she initially wasn’t keen on following her parent’s footsteps. Le Bon kicked off her modeling career at age 16 and eventually left home at 19 to travel the world as a model. She worked as a model for eight years before landing in Paris in 2011. Thankfully, the French city chose and favored her as it launched her acting career.
Le Bon began her showbiz career as a model and dedicated eight years of her life to the art. Although she spent a lot of her early life modeling, the actress actually really hated the fashion business. In addition to her acting career, Charlotte is an artist and painter at heart. The former model has co-organized some art exhibitions in Paris.
The actress is active on social media. While she may not be present on all popular social networking platforms, she connects with fans on a more personal note via her Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.
