The actress is featured in four films: The French Dispatch, Tromperie, France and L’Histoire de ma femme.
Léa Seydoux was to be one of the star actresses of this 74th edition of the Cannes film festival, but the actress webbed for The Life of Adele, in 2013, has just been tested positive for Covid, reveals Variety. Yet vaccinated, she would have caught it during a shoot currently in production. Even being asymptomatic, she had to return to isolate herself at her home in Paris. “Here is a plot twist worthy of the Ten percent series”, comments the article, which specifies that she must currently undergo a test every day and can only go to the Croisette if she tests negative two days in a row.
