Some new interviews have been published online while Sister continues to conquer US theaters. This week-end it opens in cities like Cambridge (MA), Washington (DC), Pasadena (CA) and more. Take a look at the full w-e list here.
“I work a lot now—which I like. But I didn’t know what to expect. When I made the decision to be an actress I didn’t know what that meant. You know it was strange because I was sure I was made for acting. But it wasn’t easy. It took time. I had to work, learn … get beyond my fears” – Source
Yesterday evening Léa attended the “Sister”
premiere during the BFI London Film Festival at Curzon Mayfair in London, along with Ursula Meier, Gillian Anderson and Martin Compston. Some pictures have been added to the gallery, enjoy!
With the US release of “Sister” (albeit limited) around the corner, Léa along with the cast is in NYC to promote the film and quite a handful of interviews have been posted online: The Fantasy Lives of Léa Seydoux by Interview Magazine, Actress Lea Seydoux on Her New Film ‘Sister’ by Blackbook and The Emotional Difficulties Of ‘Sister’by Indiewire. For a full list of theatres and their open dates, you can see it here.
“I always choose the director, I pay more attention to directors than to scripts because it’s subjectivity, it’s somebody’s world and somebody’s vision. So I need to know whose it will be. Because it’s not just playing characters and saying the lines, it’s something deeper–”
“It’s different, but it’s still acting, you know. You still have doubts and you’re scared, always, but I really love doing films in America, because I love to speak English. [laughs] But I think there’s something very entertaining about American films. But I also like the intimacy of French films.”
“I was doing reshoots for ‘Mission: Impossible,’ so I wasn’t there every day. I was a little like Louise in the film, always escaping. So yes, I had to spend time with Casey, and we got together and bought chocolates!”
Exciting news, it is been announced that Léa will play Louise in second narrative feature of the talented swiss director Ursula Meier (she was discovered in Cannes Critics’ Week in 2008 with “Home”). The film which has just started filming in Switzerland is titled “L’Enfant d’en haut” (“The Child From Above”). Sounds promising!
She has also been featured in the newest issue of Purple Magazine in a stunning editorial she did for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 collection. If anyone has these scans in better quality, they’d be greatly appreciated!
I have also added to our gallery some new stills from “Belle Épine”, including a very beautiful but different version of the film poster. Check them out!
