“There was a casting audition in France and he had a shortlist of people he wanted to see and he organized a sit down for half an hour. That's the way he auditions people, chatting one-on-one before doing an audition. We start talking about his acting experience, the fact that he wanted to be an actor and he became a director, and he told me that at some point he realized he would never act for the directors he idolized because they were mostly dead. Then I talked about my story, wanting to be a director and ending up acting. Two hours passed by and we hadn't even done the audition together.”
