On the occasion of the release of “Madame Claude” on Netflix, discover our interview with French actress Garance Marillier from our issue #88.
Nadia Tereszkiewicz, Garance Marillier, Kacey Mottet-Klein and Roman Kolinka form the vanguard of a portfolio dedicated to the new faces of French film, whose charismatic performances have electrified the big screen in recent years. Discover our second episode with Garance, whose performance in Julia Ducournau’s Raw, released in 2017, stunned audiences with its natural, stripped-down approach. Although she had already filmed shorts and TV films with the director (and others like William Laboury or Benjamin Parent), it was her ferocious role as veterinary student turned cannibal that introduced her to a wider audience. Recently, we can see her in the series To life created by Thomas Cailley and available on Netflix.
