Life and career
Zita Hanrot was born in 1990, to a black Jamaican mother and a white French father. She briefly studied history of art before enrolling at the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique, France's national drama academy based in Paris, in 2011; she graduated in 2014. Zita appeared in commercials such as the French army campaign (2006) alongside the French actor Karl E. Landler. She has cited the actress Béatrice Dalle as an inspiration, particularly for her role in the 1986 film Betty Blue.
Hanrot's first film role came in 2012 in Radiostars, directed by Romain Lévy, in which she plays the younger sister of Manu Payet. She subsequently played minor roles in The New Girlfriend (2013), and Eden (2014). Her breakthrough role came in 2015's Fatima (2015), for which she was awarded the César Award for Most Promising Actress. In the film, directed by Philippe Faucon, she plays Nesrine, a medical student and the daughter of a north-African immigrant, determined to improve her position in life.
Her brother, Idrissa Hanrot, is also an actor, starring notably in the 2016 film Five.
