Biography

Diva Plavalaguna is a fictional character from the film “The Fifth Element” directed by Luc Besson. She is played by Maïwenn Le Besco and appears in a scene towar the middle of the film. Her singing is teamed with a fight sequence starring Milla Jovovich.

The following is taken from Wikipedia.
Maïwenn first learned about the role of the diva by Luc Besson, who was her fiance at the time. Luc originally wanted her to play the role from the start, but Maïwenn refused to take the role, believing it to be wrong that she would be working for the same man she was in a relationship with. Luc ended up finding another person to take the role, a German model, however, the model never showed up for screening. Maïwenn promised Luc she would take the role provided the model didn’t show up again for the make-up screening, which was indeed the case. She performed the opera scene in front of a live audience consisting of actors who were for the first time were seeing Maïwenn in her full make-up and costume, which took three hours of morning preparations every day while filming. After seeing the film, she confessed in an interview she was disappointed about how the opera scene was constantly being interrupted and was worried her performance would go unnoticed and unappreciated by viewers. Later, however, she states discovering the large online fanbase for the Diva eased her mind.
