Ana / December 21st, 2017   Interview

She played a witch (Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films) and a Queen (Isabella in The Hollow Crown) but today Clémence Poésy is seriously dressed down for Sky Atlantic crime thriller The Tunnel. Yet despite the baggy, shapeless jumper and skinny black jeans, the French actress still looks immaculate here in Dover. Given that season two had ended with her character in recovery after being injected in the eye with a pathogen, I’d half expected an eyepatch or dramatic scar.

‘Yeah, I really wanted that!’ she laughs, slinging her legs over a director’s chair. ‘I wanted her to have a patch or special glasses, or see her go through a routine every morning, but the writers were a bit worried it might be a distraction. But you can tell something’s not quite right with her. She grinds her teeth a lot and breaks a tooth in her sleep. If it seems to be under control, it probably isn’t.’

She’ is socially awkward but brilliant French copper Elise Wassermann, working alongside her earthier, pragmatic English counterpart Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane). While it began as an Anglo-French remake of beloved Nordic noir The Bridge, The Tunnel has since carved out its own identity. Nowhere is this clearer than in the big, contemporary issues tackled in the show. This time it’s the migrant crisis and the disappeared refugee children across Europe. But another key topic proved impossible to ignore: Brexit. For an actress who splits life with her young family (she had a son, Liam, in January) between London and Paris, the uncertainty of it matters a great deal — and she has, slightly to her surprise, fallen hard for the English capital.

‘BBC Radio 6! Pubs! Sunday papers!’ she smiles, counting the reasons on her fingers. ‘I love the variety, the cultural life, the food, the green spaces that are completely absent from Paris and the roughness of it as well, how different it can be from one side to the other. I lived in Italy and adored it but I always feel like I’m visiting. London can welcome you and make you feel at home even if you’re not from there.’ This is the final series of The Tunnel so Poésy’s future won’t feature Elise. And while she’s ready to call it quits, she’ll miss the characters and the storytelling. ‘I knew Elise was going to be an intriguing person to get to know,’ she says. ‘It’s lovely to be that frank and straightforward for six months of the year!’
Next, Poésy hankers after a comedic role, preferably in the UK. ‘Whatever Phoebe Waller-Bridge is writing!’ she laughs. ‘I have a deep love of English humour. I find that self-deprecation much gentler than French irony, which is very often about other people and seems quite mean now. In France it’s all about “me” and “how special I am”. I love the value in being humble in England.’

The Tunnel is on Sky Atlantic, Thursdays at 9pm

Ana / August 9th, 2017   Final Portrait,Interview,News

The French actor Clémence Poésy, 34, is best known for her roles in The Tunnel, In Bruges and as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films. In Stanley Tucci’s film of the life of artist Alberto Giacometti she plays opposite Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer. She lives in Paris and east London, and earlier this year gave birth to her first child, Liam.

Your character in Final Portrait is Giacometti’s mistress and muse, Caroline. She’s full of life and colour, but is very temperamental and often skittish. How did you want to play her?
I was constantly scared of her being too much. But Stanley had his film very clear in his head, and knew that the story needed that burst of energy at some points. I was quite careful that we had just a minute to show that maybe her life was a bit more complicated and maybe not as happy as it seemed, and maybe a bit tougher. So we had that conversation about having one silent moment that I think brings that world into the film, and makes her a bit layered, I guess.

What was it that thrilled and seduced you in the script?

The relationship of this father with his daughter, built around humor and tenderness. I also liked COMME DES FRÈRES, Hugo Gélin’s previous film, which combined moments of authentic comedy with moments of great sensitivity.

How to explain Kristin’s behavior? Although the film does not need, did you need to understand why she acts as she does?

Yes, I tried to define on my part why, in my opinion, this behavior was inevitable and the ball was growing until it ends up leaving.

A gesture of love?
Small words or large declarations slipped under the pillow.

What would you like to change in you?

What is on your bedside table?
Several books: The Argonauts, from the American Maggie Nelson; M Train, singer Patti Smith; And The first time I was born, by Vincent Cuvellier, a book for the little ones. But also the balm of the tiger, a radio and too much Half-drunk water bottles.

The music that makes you vibrate?

Your currency ?

Your everyday hero?
My mother.

What is left in you of the child that you were?
Almost all. Finally, I hope…

If you had a magic wand, what dream would you realize?
I would create a benevolent world.

You have a five-minute appointment with Pope Francis. What topic are you talking about?
Five minutes, only? I would have a thousand questions to ask him, but I would start by mentioning St. Francis of Assisi whose history touches me particularly and whose name he chose to take.

For you, Jesus is …
An exciting historical figure.

“Praying” rhymes with …
To accompany.
