Marie-Ange Casta

 

Those genes, she shares them with older sister Laetitia – but hers is a unique aura. Meet the actor, model, mother and born-again Parisian.

“I am who I am … When you accept yourself completely, you are beautiful in your way.”

“I love natural beauty. But when I go out I love to play with it. It’s a way to transform myself and to explore a different part of my personality.”

She has lived many lives – as her job allows her to do – but her first one started in Paris. As a child, she asked her parents to move to Corsica, where island living restored her inner harmony. But eventually the capital would win her back, and it’s there she lives a life of shoots, shows, films and building a family of her own.

“My daughter … is the most important thing in my life. Finally the rest is just a detail.”
