|“||I've killed the best.||„|
|~ Sabine Moreau to William Brandt.|
Sabine Moreau is a major antagonist in the 2011 film Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. She is a French mercenary for hire who is in league with Kurt Hendricks.
She was portrayed by Léa Seydoux in her first villainous role, who later played the Loner Leader in The Lobster.
When IMF agent Trevor Hanaway and his team were assigned to intercept a courier holding Russian nuclear launch codes in Budapest, Hanaway managed to intercept the launch codes before he was then chased by armed men who were also after the launch codes. After managing to kill the men who were after him, Hanaway was then killed by Moreau as she shot him multiple times before he could react. Moreau then stole the launch codes and left Hanaway's dying body on the ground.
Later, Moreau arrived at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to make an exchange with her employer Kurt Hendricks' right-hand man Marius Wistorm to trade the launch codes for diamonds. However, Ethan Hunt and IMF chief analyst William Brandt tricked Moreau into believing that Ethan was Winstrom, but Moreau then realized that they both were IMF agents and ordered her men to kill them. She then tried to escape but was caught by Jane Carter, one of Hanaway's team members who wanted to get revenge on Moreau for killing him despite Ethan's warning that they needed her alive as she had information.
Carter then brought her up to the team's room and told recently promoted field agent Benji Dunn to watch her. Sadly, Dunn was temporarily distracted long enough for Moreau to knock him out with a swift kick. She then attempted to kill him but Carter stopped her and they both fought each other. As Carter was about to kick Moreau out of a window, Brandt then comes up to the room and yells at Carter to stop, but she fails to listen to him and kicks Moreau out the window and Moreau screams as she plunges downward to her death.
