Marie-Josée Croze


B: February 23, 1970 in Montréal, Québec

Marie-Josée Croze was adopted at the age of three, and grew up in a troubled home with an alcoholic father and a depressive and suicidal mother. As a result, she became a dark and angry teen who considered herself a victim and who contemplated suicide herself in her early 20s. Not so surprisingly, her self-loathing outlook led her to choosing a career path that ensures a great deal of rejection and failure to all but the very lucky. Croze got her first big break when she was offered the lead in the 1998 French-language short HLA Indentique by Québecois indie director Thomas Briat. Just two years later she costarred in Maelström, a film that catapulted her into the public eye.
