Marilyn Lima (born September 28, 1995) is a French actress known for her roles in Une sirène à Paris (2020), Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2015) and Skam France (2018–2020).

Career

Originally from Bordeaux, Marilyn Lima had no formal acting training when she was discovered by Eva Husson. The director came across Marilyn Lima's Tumblr blog while casting for her film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2015). After an informal meeting at a café, Lima was chosen to play the character of George.

She then continued her career on television with a TV movie Entre deux mères (2016) and Frank Bellocq's Des jours meilleurs (2017). In 2017, she was chosen to play the character of Manon Demissy in the French adaptation of Skam.

On April 23, 2019, she announced via Instagram that she would be in the music video for DJ Petit Biscuit's "We Were Young" featuring JP Cooper. On November 5, 2019, Lima announced via Instagram that she was filming for Julien Leclercq's Sentinelle, due to be released in 2020. The film was released on Netflix on March 5, 2021.

Screen Daily reported that Lima had been cast along with Nicolas Duvauchelle in Une Sirène à Paris, Mathias Malzieu's directorial debut based on his novel of the same name. The film secured a theatrical release on March 11, 2020 but was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Once theatres began to reopen following the initial stay-at-home order, the film was re-released on June 22, 2020.

On September 28, 2020, FranceTV Pro announced that Marilyn Lima had been cast as Pauline in a miniseries called J'ai menti. Filming began in early September and will continue until December 15.

Personal life

In an interview with Constellation Magazine, Marilyn Lima shared that she is the youngest of three sisters. In her free time, she pursues her love of photography, having taken up the passion in the early 2010s. She owns about forty different cameras, favoring her 35mm Pentax and Nikon models.

At the end of 2017, she started dating Michel Biel, whom she met while filming the series Skam France. Biel played her onscreen boyfriend, Charles Munier.
