Xavier Deluc

  1. Jean-Hugues Anglade, 37°2 le matin (Betty Blue), France-Italy, 1985.   Short-listed because he spoke English.  But the role of  Zorg – opposite the titular Béatrice Dalle – required rather more than that.  French casting icon  Dominque Besnehard found J-HA, while trying to cast him in Captive… again because he could handle English. But  it was the blond Deluc who was chosen to lead the rich, amateur anarchists kidnapping tycoon Olvier Reed’s daughter, Irina Brook.
