Unfortunately, her plan to join the Paris Opera fell through, when she was told that she couldn’t perform because all other dancers were white. Instead, she was given a Baccalaureat with a theater option. She obtained DEUG in law when she was only 20, then joined the École des Enfants Terribles in Paris, and completed an acting degree at the highly competitive French National Academy of Dramatic Arts.
