Léa Seydoux: what the death of Gaspard Ulliel changed in her

According to her, Léa Seydoux was very admiring of Gaspard Ulliel. “He was one of the great actors of my generation. Our filmographies have crossed paths so many times. He leaves, and we realize that he had this natural reserve, this modesty which meant that we not bother him between shoots. We pushed back the time to also be close friends. He was like that. With a part of mystery that he held dear, which allowed him to breathe between films, to exist other than as a actor who spends his whole life in the image” confided the young woman. Moreover, she admitted that her death changed something in her relationship to the world and to cinema. “I want to live, above all not to be only in fiction. I feel the need, even if it’s to feed the actress afterwards” she concluded.
