Who is Céline Buckens?
British-Belgian actress Amelie Margaret Céline Buckens was born in Brussels, Belgium, on 9 August 1996, under the zodiac sign of Leo. She’s appeared in 13 movies and TV series, and is perhaps best known for her playing of Talitha Campbell in the 2021 mystery crime mini-series “Showtrial”, in which she starred alongside Joseph Payne and Kerr Logan. It follows Cleo Roberts as she’s defending the main suspect in a high profile murder case – the mini-series was nominated for two awards, including a BAFTA TV.
Education and early life
Céline’s Belgian parents raised her in Brussels, but as she respects their privacy, not a lot about her mother and father is known. Céline’s yet to speak about having any siblings, and this is why some of her fans believe that she has none.
The family moved to London, England when Céline was only a couple of years old, and she studied at Thomas’s London Day Schools, prior to progressing to St Mary’s School.
She fell in love with acting when she was 12, and watched movies and TV series on a daily basis. Céline was 15 when she made her debut film appearance, playing Emilie in the critically acclaimed 2011 action adventure drama “War Horse”, directed by Steven Spielberg, and which starred Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson and David Thewlis. It follows Young Albert whose horse has been sold to the cavalry, and who because of this, has joined the British forces fighting in World War I; the movie won 15 of its 98 award nominations, including six Oscar nominations.
Céline didn’t appear in any movies or TV series in the following five years, wanting to focus on her education. Upon matriculating in 2014, she enrolled at the London School of Economics and Political Science, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in history in 2017.
Roles in movies
Céline played the main character Vanessa Kentworth in the 2016 short historical drama “The Rain Collector”, and then Mia in the 2018 adventure comedy drama “Free Rein: The Twelve Neighs of Christmas”, directed by Marek Losey, and which starred Jaylen Barron, Billy Angel and Manpreet Bambra; the movie follows the lives of girls Zoe and Gaby.
Céline starred as Elsa in the 2018 short drama “Ne M’oublie Pas”, and her only other film role has been her portrayal of Annalise in the hit 2019 mystery crime drama “The Good Liar”, directed by Bill Condon, and which starred Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen and Russell Tovey. It follows conman Roy Courtnay who’s trying to steal millions of dollars from a recently widowed woman – the film was nominated for five awards.
