Clémence Poésy’s Daryl Dixon Character Gives Fleur Delacour a Shot at Redemption

Let’s hope Isabelle on The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon is a fiercer competitor than Clémence Poésy’s Harry Potter character Fleur Delacour.

Naturally, Darly Dixon himself (Norman Reedus) is the main character of the latest Walking Dead spinoff, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. But that doesn’t mean our eponymous hero has to endure the ravages of post-apocalyptic France alone.

The supporting cast of Daryl Dixon is headlined by Clémence Poésy playing Isabelle: a nun with a mysterious past. The French actress has enjoyed a vibrant career in both modeling and acting, with major roles in projects such as In Bruges, 127 Hours, Tenet, and countless other French and English-language productions. To the millennials among us (Hello! And sorry!), however, Poésy will forever be known as Triwizard Tournament contestant Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Though she never really went away, Poésy popping back up in a pop cultural powerhouse like The Walking Dead gives us a chance to reflect upon her big debut mainstream film role. It also gives Poésy’s Isabelle a chance to succeed where Fleur Delacour failed. What I’m trying to say is that Fleur dropped the ball in the Triwizard tournament. I mean, she really shit the bed.
