Early life and education
Nora is of mixed descent, since her father Wolfgang is from Austria and is Catholic while her mother Piera is of Egyptian- and Sephardic-Jewish descent. Though she was born in Paris, she was raised in Aix-en-Provence together with her younger sister Lea Arnezeder. She claims how her strongest memory from her childhood is listening to Asian, jazz, classical and Indian music, as her parents were listening to these genres all the time. She became interested in acting when she was a small girl – she went to live in Bali in Indonesia for a year when she was 14, and after she came back to France, she moved to Paris to attend high school, and then decided to start practicing acting and singing at the Cours Florent drama school.
First modelling offer
Nora told one of her interviewers that she was once sitting in a restaurant with her parents when she was 14, and some people came to her and asked her if she wanted to be a model. She went to see them afterwards, and they told her that she had to lose seven kilos to which she replied that she’d rather eat French fries.
Nora landed her first role in 2007 when she played Lyri in “Les deux mondes” movie. She won her first significant role the next year in “Paris 36” (originally “Faubourg 36) – she performed so well that she won the Lumieres Award and the Etoile d’Or Award. She also sang a song called “Loin de Paname” in the movie, and it was later nominated for Best Original Song during the 82nd Academy Awards.
She took a break from 2008 to 2011 when she voiced Katia in the “Louis la Chance” movie, and played Chloe in “La Croisiere” film. In 2012, she landed four roles – the major role of Emilie in “What the Day Owes the Night” romantic drama film, which is based on the novel by the same name written by Yasmina Khadra; appeared in “The Words” and “Maniac” movies, and then landed the role of Ana Moreau in the “Safe House” action thriller film in which she played alongside famous actors Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington.
In 2013, Nora won her first lead role in the costume historic romantic movie entitled “Angelique” and after that in 2014, she played Sandra in the “Fiston” movie, and was cast in her first recurring role, of Anna Maria in the “Mozart in the Jungle” TV series, which went on to win two Golden Globes. In 2015, Nora won the first of two roles for which she is famous today – she played Chloe Tousignant in the first and the second seasons of the “Zoo” TV drama series based on a novel of the same name written by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge.
She appeared as Nadia in the “Riviera” Irish TV drama in 2017, and landed three roles in 2018: she was Z in “In the Cloud” science fiction movie, she had a lead role of Juliet in “Le Musk” reality film. The second role for which she is famous for is the lead role of Evelyn Rey in the “Origin” horror science-fiction web TV series, for which she is currently shooting.

Personal life and likes
Nora never talked openly about her ex-boyfriends, but although she tries to keep these things to herself, it is known that she dated actor Cristophe Barratier for about a year before they separated in 2009. She then dated Gad Elmaneh, but there is nothing known about their relationship except for the facts that they dated and later split. In 2014, it came to public attention that Nora might be in a romantic relationship with a famous Pirates of the Caribbean actor Orlando Bloom. She was seen with him on the beach in Formentera as well as at “The Roger Room” bar located in Los Angeles, in January 2014. Neither one of them admitted that they were in a relationship, and if they were, they aren’t anymore as Nora began dating Guy Burnet in 2015, but they broke up soon afterwards. She appears to be single at the moment, has never married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Two of the people Nora admires the most from the film industry are the actor and director Woody Allen, and the film producer and musician Quincy Jones. She is a big fan of Walt Disney movies and used to be in love with Aladdin, she had a plan to meet him when she was little, and was very disappointed when she realized that was never going to happen. She also claims how she would love to voice an animated character as she hasn’t had a chance to do that yet. She is currently busy playing the guitar and writing her own songs, as she plans to release her first album sometime soon. If she hadn’t ended- up being an actress, she said how she would have become a sports coach, psychologist, or would have turned into a psycho.
