Marie-Sophie Nélisse (born March 27, 2000) is a Canadian teen actress. She is known for her Genie Award–winning performance in Monsieur Lazhar, and as Liesel Meminger (the lead character) in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel The Book Thief.
Nélisse was born in Windsor, Ontario on March 27, 2000. She is of French-Canadian descent. Her younger sister is actress Isabelle Nélisse, best known for her role in Mama.
Her family moved to Montréal, Québec when she was four.
She spent her early years training in gymnastics, aiming for the 2016 Olympics, and signed to a talent agency to make money to pay for the training, but after getting the part in The Book Thief (and subsequent accolades) she shifted her focus to acting.
Besides her Genie Award for Monsieur Lazhar, she won a Jutra Award for her performance and a Young Artist Award nomination as Best Leading Young Actress in an International Feature Film. She also had roles in the film Ésimésac and in a Québec sitcom called Les Parent. She will play the title role in the upcoming film The Great Gilly Hopkins, which finished filming on June 15, 2014.
