Léa seydoux shared her character’s beauty, voice, intelligence and freedom. But what was decisive during our meeting was her take on society: she’s very much tuned in to the world around her. She possesses a real social awareness, she has a real engagement with the world, very similar to my own. Léa has a way of going through life fully aware of what’s happening. It’s also a way of accepting life’s vicissitudes. It has something to do with nomadism, wandering, and with melancholy. Léa is tinged with all this, with this way of going through the world.
