Swann Arlaud, actor protean
Justine Triet “To play the heroine’s lawyer, I didn’t especially want a tenor from the virile bar, with a big voice and sleeve effects. Swann’s subtlety imposed itself. I had seen it in You only want me of Claire Simon, where it is exceptional. The duet with Sandra, who plays his client, took off immediately. They adored each other… In the game, on the other hand, Swann is very different from her: it is through spontaneity, contextualization, that he manages to see the truth emerge, without knowing exactly when it will be. moved, sometimes surprised by his own interpretation. He’s hypersensitive. His condition, the atmosphere on the set, the slightest indication will influence his acting, and I was always careful with my language, because when certain actors hardly listen to you, Swann, he integrates the least of my words.
