There is also a little interview of Melanie in the Press kit . You can read it below or download it HERE .

What was your first impression when you read the script?

My immediate reaction was that it was a wonderful portrait of a woman and magnificent love story
in various forms—passion between Marie and Guise, tender affection with her husband, the Prince,
a philosophical and intellectual bond with Chabannes, and a certain ambiguity with Anjou. The script
was very faithful to the original text, although Madame de La Fayette’s novel is remarkably chaste.
There isn’t the passion and the newlyweds’ discovery of sexuality, which are present in the film.

The Princess is caught between conflicting forces…

Absolutely. The Queen, Catherine de Medici, sums it up perfectly when she tells Marie that she is torn
between her integrity, which makes her want to be a good wife, and her desire and sensuality, which
she experiences with her lover. It’s a contradiction that constantly preys on her. For example, she
never received a formal education, but she’s a bright young woman who needs to make sense of the
world in which she lives. In order to exist, she needs to be able to express her ideas and opinions.

Would you say she’s manipulative?

I thought so at the beginning. I pictured her as a seductress who knew exactly how to get what
she wanted. So when she decides to learn to write, I thought it was to send love letters to Guise.
Then I realized I was on the wrong track. In fact, she’s totally unaware of her beauty and powers of
seduction. She’s never calculating.

What was the atmosphere on set?

What I found very positive was that there were two generations rubbing shoulders—big names and
young actors. It could have led to different approaches to the dialogue, for example, but on the
contrary, there was genuine harmony. Personally, I adored the rhythm and musicality of the dialogue.
Everything that seemed old-fashioned on the page became perfectly clear and self-evident on set.
