Marina Foïs began her career in the theatre and then with a comic troupe called "The Royal Imperial Green Rabit Company". After a change of name to "Les Robins des Bois", the troupe was spotted in 1996 by Dominique Farrugia and quickly became an act not to be missed.
Marina Foïs was first seen on the silver screen in 1994 in "Blue Helmet" by Gerard Jugnot, followed by a number of small roles in comedies such as "Serial Lover" (1998) and "Influence Peddling" (1999). In 2001, bouncing off of her comic success with the troupe "Robins des Bois", she landed a number of comic roles in cinema: organizer of a sting operation in "Don't Die Too Hard!", the pretty Sucettalanis in "Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra" (2002) and a young nurse in "The Race".
In 2003, she appeared in two of Claude Duty's films: "Hypnotized and Hysterical (Hairstylist Wanted)", opposite Amira Casar and Olivia Bonamy, and "Bed and Breakfast", incarnating a character having difficulty adjusting to rural living. Back with the troupe "Robin des Bois" for a prehistoric comedy entitled "RRRrrrr!!!" (2004), her solo career continued to peak with roles in "Un petit jeu sans consequence" by Bernard Rapp and "A Ticket to Space" (2006) by Kad & O. Irresistible opposite Julien Boisselier in " J'me sens pas belle" (2005), Marina Foïs tackles a different kind of role in 2007, that of a desperate mother in the dark drama "Darling" by Christine Carriere.
The following year, she affirms her versatility as an actress, sharing billing with Sandrine Bonnaire in the adaptation of Flaubert's "A Simple Heart". In the same vein, in 2009, she joins the cast of Christophe Honore's "Making Plans for Lena", opposite Chiara Mastroianni. A remarkable lead role was offered to her in "Happy Few" (2010) by the young director Antony Cordier, who had previously made "Cold Showers" in 2005. Happy Few" was selected in the official competition at the Venice Film Fest.
