Born on July 21, 1971 in London and raised in Paris, Charlotte Gainsbourg she is a daughter of art, her parents are actors and singers Serge Gainsbourg is Jane Birkin, which is why he is fluent in both French and English. Gainsbourg and Birkin were both at the height of their fame at the birth of Charlotte, but the marriage between the two ends when the girl is only nine years old and from then on, Charlotte continues to live with her mother in Paris; her father, on the other hand, turns to alcohol, an addiction that will cause her death in 1991. It was her mother who pushed her towards an acting career from a very young age, encouraging her to make her big screen debut at thirteen with Love and music (1984) as the daughter of Catherine Deneuve, a film in which he immediately shows his bilingualism with dialogues in both French and English. His second role gets it in 1985 thanks to Jacques Doillon, at that time companion of the Birkin, which he was directing The Tentation d’Isabelle.
