Tarzan and the Lost CityAfter GCSEs, March moved to an apartment in Wimbledon with friends and continued to model before a call to audition in Paris on her 17th birthday following a cover shoot of Just Seventeen which had attracted the attention of French director Jean-Jacques Annaud's wife, Laurence Duval Annaud. March was chosen to play the female lead in 1992 film The Lover, based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras.
Two years after The Lover, she co-starred with Bruce Willis in the erotic thriller Color of Night (1994), directed by Richard Rush. The script was the first March had received since The Lover. Color of Night became a box office failure, but the film went on to do very well in the home video market and became one of the top 20 most-rented films in the United States in 1995. Maxim magazine also ranked her sex scene in the film as "the Best Sex Scene in film history".
