When she was only 5, the renowned ballet instructor and dancer Max Bozzoni recognized her amazing talent in ballet dancing, and trained her extensively through her childhood.

Anne-Sophie started her professional career landing several national commercials for companies such as Chanel No. 5 and NCSF – the French railway system.  She made her feature film debut in the award winning film ‘Comedy of Power’, starring Isabelle Huppert, one of the most famous and respected actresses in France, often compared to Meryl Streep in the U.S.  Her next role was equally impressive, this time in Isabelle Mergault’s ‘Enfin Veuve’ where she appeared alongside Michele Laroque.  It was during the filming of ‘Enfin Veuve’ that renowned film distributor and programmer Denis Chateau advised Anne-Sophie to move to the United States to further her career.  She followed his advice, and it has proven to be the right choice. She has worked on many impressive theater productions in the U.S., including, most notably, ‘The Rimers of Eldritch’ which featured Anne-Sophie playing and 80-year old woman, as well as Waiting for Lefty, directed by Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Milton Justice, as well as a modern adaptation of ’12 Angry Men’ simply entitled ‘12’ directed by May Quigley Goodman.
