Daughter of the actress Nathalie Baye and Johnny Hallyday, Laura Smet, was born on 15 November 1983 in Neuilly-sur-Seine. She stopped studying at the age of 16 and took acting lessons from Raymond Acquaviva.

While attending the Emergence workshops, she was spotted at the age of 19 by Olivier Assayas, who recommended her to Xavier Giannoli for his first feature film, Les Corps impatients. The actress, who didn’t hesitate for a second to shave off her long hair to play the role of a young girl suffering from cancer, was immediately noticed: she received the Romy Schneider prize and a nomination for the César for Best Newcomer in 2004. She then went on to play the roles of Claude Chabrol’s Demoiselle d’Honneur (2004) and Pascal Thomas’ L’heure zéro (2007). In 2008, chosen to play in Philippe Garrel’s romantic comedy, La Frontière de l’aube, she is delighted not to be locked in dark roles.

On the private side, she was the companion of Frédéric Beigbeder (2004-2006). In 2009, she is the companion of Julien Delajoux, the brother of neurosurgeon Stéphane Delajoux. At the beginning of July 2012, Laura Smet finds love again on the arm of electro DJ Jean-Claude Sindres. Since 2013, she shares the life of a young man named Raphaël. On 1 December 2018, she married her partner Raphaël Lancrey Javal at the town hall of the 7th arrondissement of Paris. On 15 June 2019, the couple celebrated their religious wedding in Cap-Ferret, with many celebrities, including Nathalie Baye, posting photos of the bride and groom on social networks. On 15 July 2020, during an interview with RTL, Laura Smet announced that she was expecting her first child.
