Welcome to Magnifique Marion Cotillard! Marion's best known for her award winning performance in La Vie en Rose, but you might also recognise her from movies such as Inception, Midnight in Paris, The Dark Knight Rises and The French Rust and Bone. Collecting nominations for her latest film Two Days, One Night and starring in the upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Marion Cotillard is finally making a comeback to leading roles. Not stopping at movies, Marion Cotillard is also exploring her musical talents, having toured with French rock band Yodelice and recorded a song and video with British band Metronomy. She's also taken over the fashion industry as the face of Lady Dior. All the while, she is never too busy for her family and to lend her time and name to causes she believes in.

As you may have noticed Sofia came on board just before the Cannes Film Festival to help keep the site stay updated. She’s been doing a great job with adding all the latest info, HQ event pics & magazine scans. Not only that but she also added new HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard’s early TV appearances. Thank you! Be sure to check them out!

On December 28, 2002 Marion Cotillard appeared on the first edition of French TV Show “Défis des stars” (Challenges for stars). Directed by Pascal Duchêne and moderated by Nikos Aliagas and Star Academy finalist Eva 20 brave actors, singers and comedians faced challenges that revolved around the circus such as animal training, juggling, magic and cabaret acts. Marion performed using a magic wand. Judging by the screencaps by Erik she was also an assistant in one of the magic acts. Fellow participants included her co-stars from ‘Taxi‘ (Samy Nacéri performed with 4 tigres from Circus Yann Gruss and Frédéric Diefenthal with bears from Circus Phénix) and ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Ophélie Winter performed on aerial silk and Titoff in another act). Elie Semoun, Véronique Genest, Gérard Jugnot, L5, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Grégori Baquet, Anthony Kavanagh, Patrick Timsit and Pascal Sellem were also part of the show.

Moderator Nikos said in advance: “I don’t know whether it will work for viewers. But I think it’s very nice to see the stars in different roles, to see them in burlesque, funny or dangerous situations. There will be music, entertainment, it will be a party. It’s the end of the year, so we will finish it in a good mood, with completely original and magical images.” And they succeeded for the newspaper Le Parisien later called it an original evening.

Does anybody have videos of any of the shows we’ve added pictures of – or of Marion Cotillard’s other television appearances? Please send them in, we’d be very thankful!

Can I just say that it’s incredible that she looks exactly the same, over a decade after these pictures?
