Virginie Thevenet

  1. Dani, La nuit américaine( US: Day for Night), France-Italy, 1972.  For his love letter to cinema,  auteur FrançoisTruffaut wanted the Parisienne Thevenet to play Liliane,  the apprentice on his crrew making the  film within the film. Until he felt she “looked too much like a baby.” Perfect, therefore,  for his film about kids, L’argent de poche (Pocket Money ), 1975.  She loved working with Truffaut but hated her role – wife of a schoolteacher, played by actor-cum-assistant director and head of an acting clan: Jean-François Stévenin.
