Life and career

She was born on 28 November 1981 in Rennes.[1] Bourgoin's parents, both secondary level teachers, encouraged her to pursue a stable career. She studied for five years at the École des Beaux-Arts in Rennes.[2] She became a plastic arts teacher[3][4] while simultaneously beginning to work as a model; some of her most notable early work as a model was for the photographer Ian Sanderson.[1]

After graduating in 2004, Bourgoin became a presenter for the television program Kawaï ! on Filles TV channel. Two years later, she made a brief appearance on Direct 8.[1] At the same time, she worked with TV presenter Marc Lacombe on a pilot program for Playstation TV. This television channel never started broadcasting, and the pilot was never distributed.[5]

In 2006, she worked as the weather girl for Le Grand Journal with Michel Denisot, which broadcast nightly on Canal+. To avoid audiences confusing her for fellow Le Grand Journal presenter, Ariane Massenet, Bourgoin selected the pseudonym of "Salomé". As this was rejected by Canal +, she chose the name "Louise Bourgoin" as a tribute to her favorite sculptor, Louise Bourgeois.[2]

In 2007, she was offered a role in a film, playing a television weather girl in The Girl From Monaco.[6] Subsequently she played in several films including The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec directed by Luc Besson[7] and Black Heaven directed by Gilles Marchand, a film that was screened Out of Competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.[2]

Personal life

She is currently in a relationship with electronic musician Tepr. In December 2015, it was announced that Bourgoin and Tepr were expecting their first child.[8] Bourgoin gave birth to her son, Étienne, on 7 April 2016.[9]
