Jeanne Mas

  1. Isabelle Adjani, L’Etémeurtrier (UK/US : One Deadly Summer),  France, 1982.    When Adjani backed out because of the nudity required,  her potential successors included two singers (Lio and Jeanne Mas) and dancer Anne Fontaine. Once Valerie Kaprisky was signed, Adjanin called director Jean Becker. She’d  changed her mind… “You have no right to behave like that,”  fumed casting director Dominique Besnehard. (He later became her agent  – and Valerie’s).  No one told Kaprisky  the rotten news – except the media. And she was still tearful about it when telling me all  in Paris in 1984. After 12 movies as actress, Fontaine became a director,  making  14 films in 21 years including Adoreand Gemma Bovery.
