Fantastic news everyone! Eva’s amazing twin sister Joy recently granted us an Exclusive Q&A! We thank her for her candidness and kindness for being available to us for this interview. Thank you for reading and feel free to leave some message or comments for Joy, Niccolò and Eva. Enjoy!!
We’ve added a Swedish translation of the interview and you can read it HERE.
Running a vineyard is not a joke, especially during harvest season. What’s a typical day like for you?
It is both a period of positive adrenalin and stress all at the same time, especially the days prior to the start of harvest. Once we begin it’s a bit like a marathon, you put your head down and work!! Wine, as you know, is a living thing. Every harvest is a bit like having a new born. It’s fragile and delicate…. since its early stage it already shows its character, its nuances. It’s certainly a very exciting period of the year.

There is no real typical day actually. We all generally wake up very early. Niccolò runs around, from his work as Director of another winery and the vineyards to coordinate the picking and the arrival of the grapes. I prepare the kids for school then I prepare everything at the winery. During harvest, we know when we start and never when the day’s work will be finished…

What does your work mean to you?
It’s a beautiful art. I find it extremely joyful to be able to play different characters. In true life I am shy, my job allows me to canalize my demons. It is jubilant to be able to “liberate “ myself by performing a role.

Was becoming an actress your dream as a child?
Not at all. At the start I wanted to be an Egyptologist…. But then at age 18 I started taking theater courses and… here I am!!!

The movie The Dreamers was the picture that put you on the spotlights. How important was that role for both your personal and professional growth?
I have wonderful memories of working with the great maestro Bertolucci, it’s most certainly one of my most memorable experiences. It’s thanks to him that I’m still acting today. On the set he was very gentle, respectful and fatherly. When the movie came out , on the other hand, it was a brutal experience. Most journalists wanted to talk about was nudity, when in my opinion there were other more important subjects in the movie …no?

What is your favorite movie?
Cries And Whispers

Is there a role you would have liked to play?
Virginia Woolf

What is your opinion on Weinstein?
I already expressed myself repeatedly on this matter; I would rather not talk about it anymore.

You are of French origins, how difficult was it to be accepted in Hollywood? I bet it hasn’t been an easy task…
In France the film director has full power of decision, unlike in the USA where even a famous professional such as Ridley Scott doesn’t have the last word! For my part the work it’s identical wherever it is an independent movie or a big Hollywood production. You may feel the difference in the budget they dispose for the movie set , the number of actors featuring in the movie… As far as I’m concerned, the hardest part is definitely to train for roles with all the different accents, in different languages, other than my mother tongue.
