Intense, almond-eyed, soulful yet spirited young French lead, daughter of popular film actor Richard Bohringer. She spent much time on the shoots of her father's films while growing up and played a few roles, but only began pursuing her own career vigorously when director Peter Brook cast her as Miranda in a staging of "The Tempest." Bohringer received critical raves for her first prominent film role, that of a volatile teen who becomes involved with an HIV-positive bisexual man who does not tell her of his condition in "Savage Nights" (1992). She clinched both her popularity and national sympathy and esteem when she won a Cesar as Best Female Newcomer for the role and addressed the tragic death three days earlier from AIDS complications of director-star Cyril Collard (whose film also copped the Best Picture Cesar). Bohringer followed up with an equally expressive but much more inwardly directed performance as "The Accompanist" (1992), a shy woman involved in both romantic triangles and WWII intrigue as she travels with an operatic diva and her husband (played by Richard Bohringer).
