Early life and education

Polanski is the daughter of Polish filmmaker Roman Polanski and French actress Emmanuelle Seigner. She has a younger brother, Elvis. Polanski was raised bilingually in French and Polish.[1]

Polanski was educated at the International School of Paris. She later studied acting at the Drama Centre London and the Central School of Speech and Drama, graduating in 2014.[2]


Polanski made her acting debut in her father's 2002 film The Pianist. She appeared in two more of his films, Oliver Twist (2005) and The Ghost Writer (2010), in the latter of which she had her first speaking role.[3]

In 2019 Polanski starred in Rene van Pannevis debut feature Looted. Pannevis stated, “I hadn’t worked with Morgane before so she was a bit lost after her first scene. Thankfully, she picked it up very quickly and her performance is beautiful. I mean, growing up in that environment, I knew she had the skills.”[5]

In February 2020 it was revealed that Polanski will appear in the Wes Anderson’s new film The French Dispatch.[6]
