Virginie Efira honors her last public appearances before the end of the year holidays. After having been on the poster for “Benedetta” by Paul Verhoeven, a film for which she climbed the steps of the Cannes Film Festival last July, “Him” by Guillaume Canet, then being a member of the jury for the 78th edition of the Mostra of Venice, organized last September, the Belgian actress is back in the limelight. At the end of the year, she is indeed promoting the feature film “Madeleine Collins”, by Antoine Barraud, in which she is offered the role of Judith, a young woman who leads a double life between France and Switzerland. A dramatic film, scheduled in cinemas on Wednesday, and whose preview was held at the UGC Les Halles cinema, in the first arrondissement of Paris, on Tuesday evening.
Dressed in leather pants, a black blazer and a striped shirt, the 44-year-old actress once again lit up the photocall. Adorned with a broad smile, she gladly took the pose with the film crew, including her co-star Bruno Salomone, with whom she had a great bond. Actors François Rostain, Nadav Lapid and Thomas Gioria, also in the cast of “Madeleine Collins”, also provided the trip.
Virginie Efira on promotion
If Antoine Barraud’s film allows Virginie Efira to walk the red carpet, it is also an opportunity for her to slip some personal secrets during promotional interviews. Monday, she demonstrated it in the columns of “Liberation”, evoking her love at first sight with her companion Niels Schneider, in 2017. “It’s very weird to fall in love when you play perversion and incest” , she confided in particular, remembering the shooting of the film “Un amour impossible”, the place of their meeting.
