Jeanne De Rougemont
Jeanne was born in France and grew up around the world in South Africa, South Korea and Spain. She studied acting at the Laboratory of Physical Theatre Training in Paris, and at the Court Theatre Training Company, and is now based in London. She is a native French speaker who is also fluent in English and Spanish, and intermediate in Korean.
In Paris, she played Mère Ubu in a highly energetic physical production of Ubu Roi, directed by Lucas Borzykowski. After settling in London, she took the title role in an adaptation of Phaedra, a one-woman show mixing classical and modern texts. In Blood Wedding by Federico García Lorca, she played a desperate but determined wife, and in The Funeral by Katie McLeod, she portrayed a traumatised woman finally standing up for herself.
Her screen credits include horror feature film Granny Krampus, in which she played the lead antagonist; short film Who Art Thou?, in which she played the lead character; and docudrama Cher: The Greatest Showgirl, directed by Steve Webb for Channel 5.
Jeanne spends a lot of time developing her physical skills - she is a taekwondo red belt and is aiming for a black belt, and she is learning aerial hoop. She is also highly skilled in physical theatre, a stilt walker, and is trained in stage combat.
