On returning to France she continued with dance but also registered for the Simon Course and was admitted to the Conservatoire, from where she graduated in 1972 with a second prize in comedy, dramatic comedy and foreign theatre.
Mainneville is a commune in the Eure department in Normandy in northern France.
Normandy is the northwesternmost of the 18 regions of France, roughly referring to the historical Duchy of Normandy.
Her second cinema appearance was in Two People (1973) directed by Robert Wise. She became more widely known as the script girl in La Nuit américaine (Day for Night) by François Truffaut. Throughout the 1970s she played the good girlfriend or nice provincial girl in film and television.

Robert Earl Wise was an American film director, producer and editor. He won Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture for both West Side Story (1961) and The Sound of Music (1965). He was also nominated for Best Film Editing for Citizen Kane (1941) and directed and produced The Sand Pebbles (1966), which was nominated for Best Picture.
Day for Night is a 1973 French film directed by François Truffaut. It stars Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Pierre Léaud. It is named after the filmmaking process referred to in French as la nuit américaine, whereby sequences filmed outdoors in daylight are shot using a filter placed over the camera lens or also using film stock balanced for tungsten (indoor) light and underexposed to appear as if they are taking place at night. In English, the technique is called day for night, which is the film's English title.
In 1981, she won her first César, for best supporting artist in Sauve qui peut (la vie) by Jean-Luc Godard. There then followed Le Retour de Martin Guerre (The Return of Martin Guerre, 1982) and La Balance (also 1982).

The film had a total of 4,192,189 admissions in France becoming the 5th highest-grossing film of the year.
Baye won two more Césars (Best Supporting Female for Une étrange affaire (A Strange Affair), and Best Actress in 1982 for La Balance). Her four-year relationship with Johnny Hallyday made them a celebrity couple and their daughter Laura is now actress Laura Smet.
