Did You Know?
[on Gabriel Axel
] Gabriel's enthusiastic, like an enchanted child, and that is very stimulating. There is no fear. He eases you into a state of total confidence. Actors, we're like children, you know. And he had such a love for this subject, there was necessarily a great joy in working with him to make Babette come alive.
She was initially reluctant to play the role of Isabelle Huppert
's working class mother in Violette
(1978), as she knew it wasn't a right fit for her. Her performance in the film was actually what led Gabriel Axel
to consider her for the title role in Babette's Feast
(1987), which became her signature movie.
