Once she moved back to Paris, Arnezeder studied at L'Académie Internationale de Danse, de Chant et de Theatre and followed that with several training sessions with Jacques Walzer at the Studio Pygmalion, Cours Florent.

Arnezeder was asked to sing and perform a comedic scene for the audition, and won the part of Douce, a character that is the voice of the musical portrait of a euphoric period (1930s Paris). The film was directed by Christophe Barratier and received an Oscar nomination for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song ("Loin de Paname"). For her work on the film, Arnezeder won the 2009 Lumiere Award for Most Promising Young Actress (Meilleur espoir féminin) and the 2009 Étoile d'Or Award for Best Female Newcomer (La révélation féminine).

Arnezeder was recently seen on the big screen in France in Pascale Pouzadoux's "La croisière." Her television credits include a series regular role as Varvara Valadine on "Xanadu" and a guest-starring role on "Commissaire Valence."
