The role of Angelique in the existing films was intended to be fulfilled by the one and only Brigitte Bardot, but silly Brigitte turned down the script without reading it. She is later said to have been rather upset (I think gutted a more appropriate term) when she finally did discover the genius of Angelique.
This brings me on to the fact that some fans (my Mother included, and most vociferously!) didn't feel that the lead actress, Michèle Mercier captured the true Angelique. I would consider my acting career fulfilled if I could successfully help bring the work of art that is the Angelique series, to the big screen. Or even a little screen. And I believe that I could do it; Angelique resonates with me. Whether it is that impulsiveness, the wilful and stubborn child coupled with a generous spirit and the tough, compassionate nature of a woman, I find that Angelique travels with me. She has an open heart and mind that allows her to cross social and cultural boundaries, and she doesn't comply with society's expectations - she does things in her own way. Now, do excuse my vanity in posting a few photos that I may or may not try and use to help me achieve this goal.
