Roxane Mesquida (born 1 October 1981) is a French actress and model based in Los Angeles.
Mesquida grew up in Le Pradet, a little town located in South of France. Her mother, writer Françoise Mesquida, is French/Spanish and her father is Italian/American but Mesquida never got to know him. Mesquida is fluent in English and French, and she also speaks Spanish, Italian and German.
Mesquida wanted to go to Art School (the Beaux-Arts) but finally abandoned the idea to pursue her career in acting. She is still passionate about the Arts and often visits museums. Her favorite painting is The Scream by Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch.
She is known for being an avid movie-goer (she watches about 400 movies a year) and for choosing her movies very carefully. Among her favorite movies are Béla Tarr's Sátántangó, Carlos Reygadas's Silent Light, Claire Denis's Beau Travail (Good Work), Bruno Dumont's Humanité (Humanity) and Abdellatif Kechiche's Black Venus.
Following her collaboration with Quentin Dupieux, a.k.a. Mr. Oizo, and Gaspard Augé from Justice (band) on Rubber, Mesquida started DJing with American rapper MDNA in Fashion events.
She lives in Charlie Chaplin's former house in West Hollywood.
Mesquida is currently writing a book with her mother.
