French actress Marion Cotillard has been seen getting stuck into character while filming for her latest movie in Croatia.

The 46-year-old was pictured wearing a polka-dot dress, brown summer hat and sunglasses while holding a cigarette as she stood looking over a balcony while on set in the village of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

She is playing the role of Solange D’Ayen in historical biopic Lee, which chronicles the life of Vogue model turned World War II correspondent Lee Miller.

Marion is starring alongside actors Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Josh O’Connor.

The film, called Lee, will follow the life and experiences of the photojournalist as she travels to the frontline of World War II and tries to expose the horrific truths of the Nazis. 

The actress looked relaxed in her role, bearing a concerned expression on her face as she kept character during filming. 

Her hair was worn in big curls and donned a dark red lip which perfectly matched her demure French look.

After returning to the UK post-war, Lee buried the record of her wartime work in boxes in the attic of her Sussex home and her photographs were not discovered until they were found after her death by her son.

Throughout her journey, she then comes to realise the truths of her own past – after she was a victim of rape when she was just seven years old.

In 1914, Lee had been sent to stay with family friends near New York while her mother, Florence, was ill in hospital. While there, she was raped and infected with gonorrhoea – apparently by a male friend or relative of the family she was staying with.

Later in her life, the New York fashion photographer went from appearing in American Vogue to witnessing first hand the horrors of Nazi Germany – becoming one of the most important photographers to record the 20th century.

One of only two women combat photographers during World War II, she was also one of the few female correspondents who ventured into the liberated concentration camps. 

Before the Second World War, she worked as a 20s cover girl and worked with surrealist artists in Europe before she embarked on a photojournalism career.

She felt that photography was ‘ideally suited to women as a profession, for it seems to me that women are quicker and more adaptable than men. And I think they have an intuition that helps them understand personalities more quickly than men’. 

In 1937, Picasso painted six portraits of Lee, including one in which she had a third eye.

After a stint living in Cairo, she returned to Paris, where she met the British surrealist painter and curator Roland Penrose, who would go on to teach the use of camouflage on the Second World War.
