C'est x Elle est

In the sentence "She's a French actress", supposing I'm pointing out to a picture of the actress in my hand or the actress is standing herself by my side, presenting her to others, in these cases, can I say "Elle est une actrice française" ? Or even though it remains "C'est une actrice française" ?

This question relates to:

Hi Marcio,

You can say;-

Elle est actrice” 


Elle est française” 


“C’est une actrice française” is the only correct sentence...

You cannot say ‘Il est un...’

Elle est une ...’ in French
