Does the Nun From TWD: Daryl Dixon Look Familiar? Yes, This Actress Was in Harry Potter
How Clémence Poésy jumped from the magical world of Hogwarts into post-apocalyptic survival.
Have you ever had that moment when you're watching a show, and you see a face that looks oh-so-familiar? Well, if you've watched the first episode of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon series, you might have had one of those moments.
A nun named Isabelle, Daryl’s savior who was introduced in the first episode, might have sparked a memory. If you're a Harry Potter fan, that’s the answer. The actress behind Isabelle is Clémence Poésy, who portrayed Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter series.
Clémence Poésy, with her ethereal beauty, first graced the Harry Potter universe as Fleur Delacour, the Beauxbatons champion in the Triwizard Tournament.
Fleur's character was not just about beauty; she also showed bravery, especially in the later movies, fighting alongside Harry and the gang against the dark forces.
But Clémence's journey didn't just start or end with Harry Potter. Born in France, she's enjoyed international success, taking on roles in both her native language and English.
While her role as Fleur Delacour brought her into the limelight, Clémence Poésy has worked on various projects. She has even played historical figures like Mary Stuart for the BBC. Her love for languages and words, possibly inherited from her literature teacher mother, has played a significant role in her career choices.
One of her notable English-speaking roles was alongside Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes in the thriller In Bruges. Her most recent movie role was in Christopher Nolan ’s Tenet, where she portrayed Barbara.
Poésy's fluency in English began early. She shared in an interview with The Connexion that she was put in a European school where she learned English from a young age. And her love for languages didn't stop there.
She speaks Italian and used to speak Spanish. But it's her perspective on acting in English that's truly intriguing. For her, it feels like wearing a mask, allowing her to express emotions differently. It's a freedom she cherishes.
Her character in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, even though only one episode was released, seems to be already becoming a fan-favorite, and fans can’t wait to see more of her.
