This photo was taken on the set of the 1994 English-language French thriller “Léon: The Professional” by Luc Besson. Natalie was only 11 years old when she auditioned for and won her first onscreen role as Mathilda, a 12-year old orphan who’s under the care of a professional assassin and is out to avenge her younger brother’s murder. A few years later, Natalie gains widespread popularity when she starred as Padmé Amidala in the “Star Wars” film series.
