Fanny Ardant

  1. Kristin Scott Thomas, La Belle Epoque, France, 1995.     The last of French cineaste François Truffaut's many actress-lovers - mother of his third daughter, Josephine - was, naturally, promised the role of Louis Renault's mistress in what proved to be his final script. His plan of a three hour movie and a  TV series, 00-14, was restricted to just the TV long-form by French ratings leader TF1.
  2. Sabine Azema, La Vie et rien d’autre, France, 1989.    Although she agreed to play Irene de Courtil, the insurance companies involved did not - Fanny (and Francois Truffaut) were pregnant.So realisateur Bertrandf Tvaernier ran to Catherine Deneuve and finally, the star of his (more cheerful) Un dimanche à la campagne
  3.  Robin Wright, Adore, France-Australia, 2012.   Always up to date with the latest books,  plays, ideas,  etc, it was Jeanne Moreu who told casting icon-turned-producteur Dominique Besnehard about the Doris Lessing book, The Grandmothers. He immediately thought of (who else?) Nathalie Baye opposite, say, Ardant or Nicole Garcia - with old pals  Jacques Doillon or François Ozon directing.  Instead, it became the first English language film helmed by the former actress Anne Fontaine (put up by Besnahard in  his casting days, for Isabelle Adjani’s role in  L’Eté meurtrier, 1982). Her husband, Philippe Carcassonne,  produced with Besnahard’s Mon Voisin Productions,  among five co-producing entities. (In his autobiography, adore appears to be Besnehard’s favourite word).
