Jean Davy

  1. Guy Tréjean, J’ai épousé une ombre, France,  1982.    For the parents of Francis Huster, French casting icon Dominque Besnehard suggested reuniting the Paris stage stars of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Madeleine Robinbson agreed; Raymond Gerome, did not. And how!   (“You are insolent, sir! You know very well that I didn’t get along with that woman. She’s a monster – plain nasty!”)  Besnehard ploughed on through such other  old-timers as  Davy, Georges Marchal and Maurice Teynac. Tréjean and Robinson (previously picked by Besnehard for Romy Schneider’s mother in Une histoire simple) got on so well, they co-starred in a Paris play, La Villa bleue.
