At the age of 20, Thalia Besson is trying to make a name for herself on the big screen. The daughter of Luc Besson is indeed on the poster of the film “Arthur, curse”.

This June 29, Luc Besson is making a more or less discreet return to the cinema. After three years away from cinemas, monopolized by financial difficulties and legal troubles linked to accusations of rape, the filmmaker returns as screenwriter and producer of the horror film “Arthur, curse”, derived from the trilogy ” Arthur and the Minimoys”. Surprise: his daughter Thalia is there.

At 20, the eldest daughter of Luc Besson and his producer wife Virginie Silla is indeed on the poster of the feature film. But the director Barthélémy Grossmann assures him, Thalia “won her role” and was not boosted. “I was the one who said to Luc: ‘I want to see your daughter.’ By discovering photos of Thalia on social networks, I found that, physically, she corresponded to my princess, “commented the director to the”Parisian “, which underlines the seriousness and the charisma of the young actress during the shooting.
