Pom Klementieff was conceived in Quebec City, Canada, to a Korean mother and French-Russian father, who was working there as a consul with the French government. Her parents chose the name “Pom” because it is similar in articulation to the Korean words for both “spring” and “tiger”. Klementieff lived in Canada for one year before her family ventured out extensively because of her father’s activity. They lived in Japan and the Ivory Coast, before settling in France.
Klementieff’s father kicked the bucket of malignant growth when she was 5, and her mother had schizophrenia and was not able consideration for kids, so Klementieff was raised by her fatherly uncle and auntie. Her uncle, whom she described as “like [her] second father”, passed on her eighteenth birthday celebration, and her more established brother ended it all just seven years after the fact, this time on her 25th birthday celebration. Klementieff quickly gone to graduate school after her uncle’s passing to appease her auntie yet did not discover the vocation way engaging. She also filled in as a waitress and saleswoman in France. She started acting at age 19 at the Cours Florent show school in Paris. A couple of months into her training, she won a theater rivalry that granted her free classes for two years with the school’s top teachers.
Klementieff’s first professional acting occupation was the French free film Après lui (2007), depicting the stepdaughter of the protagonist played by Catherine Deneuve. Taping for her scenes took three days. During one scene, Klementieff was supposed to push someone down a set of stairs yet coincidentally tumbled down the stairs herself, and executive Gaël Morel kept that shot in the last film. Her first driving job was in Loup (2009), a French film about a clan of reindeer herders in the Siberian mountains. During shooting, Klementieff stayed in a camp, hours from the nearest town, where temperatures dropped well underneath zero. During shooting she got to know nomads who lived there, worked with genuine wolves, rode reindeer, and swam with a horse in a lake.
Klementieff made her Hollywood introduction in Spike Lee’s Oldboy (2013), a change of the South Korean film of the same name. She depicted Haeng-Bok, the guardian of the antagonist played by Sharlto Copley. A devotee of the first film, Klementieff caught wind of the part through Roy Lee, a maker with the change, and took boxing lessons subsequent to learning the job involved hand to hand fighting. In the wake of showcasing her boxing skills during her tryout, Lee asked her to return home and return wearing an increasingly female outfit and make-up, similar to her character in the film. She contributed some of her own clothes to the character’s closet, and prepared three hours every day for two months for an on-screen battle with star Josh Brolin. Klementieff thought of the name Haeng-Bok, Korean for “happiness”, herself after Lee asked her to research possible names for the character.
Klementieff moved to Los Angeles after Oldboy was shot and started pursuing increasingly Hollywood auditions. She proceeded with taekwondo after the film, and has a purple belt as of the summer of 2014. Her next acting job was the film Hacker’s Game (2015), in which she plays a hacker she contrasted with Lisbeth Salander from the novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Klementieff used her confining skills again the film, and because of the motion picture’s low spending plan, she needed to do her own make-up and choose her very own closet. It was her plan to color her hair purple for the job, to which the directors first questioned however later acquiesced. She joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the job of Mantis in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) and showed up in the same job in the film Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
