Early life and education
Polanski made her acting debut in her father's 2002 film The Pianist. She appeared in two more of his films, Oliver Twist (2005) and The Ghost Writer (2010), in the latter of which she had her first speaking role.
In 2015, Polanski appeared in the British independent film Unhallowed Ground and began portraying Princess Gisla in the History Channel series Vikings. Princess Gisla was introduced in season three of Vikings as a daughter of the French Emperor Charles the Bald (while a legendary French princess named Gisela was the daughter of his grandson, Charles the Simple).
She directed the shorts The Stroke (2016) and The Understudy (2018), the former of which she also wrote.
In 2019 Polanski starred in Rene van Pannevis debut feature Looted. Pannevis stated, “I hadn’t worked with Morgane before so she was a bit lost after her first scene. Thankfully, she picked it up very quickly and her performance is beautiful. I mean, growing up in that environment, I knew she had the skills.”
