Anne Consigny Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Gallic actress Anne Consigny initially established herself as a television star during the early '80s, but soon branched out into cinema in 1985 as one of the leads in Portuguese director [[Performer~P118189~Manoel de Oliveira~manoeldeoliveira]]'s seven-hour epic adaptation of [[Performer~P316674~Paul Claudel~paulclaudel]]'s play Le Soulier de Satan. After a lengthy, unexplained absence during the late '80s and '90s, Consigny rebounded with great force as the female lead in [[Performer~P306210~Olivier Marchal~oliviermarchal]]'s tense police thriller [[Feature~V318919~36 Quai des Orfevres~36quaidesorfevres]], opposite heavyweights [[Performer~P87517~Gérard Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]] and [[Performer~P2912~Daniel Auteuil~danielauteuil]], and followed this up with memorable performances in such French features as [[Feature~V338074~Not Here to be Loved~notheretobeloved]] and [[Feature~V347440~One Fine Day~onefineday]] (2006). Consigny then signed for a pivotal role in [[Performer~P214355~Julian Schnabel~julianschnabel]]'s [[Feature~V395604~The Diving Bell and the Butterfly~thedivingbellandthebutterfly]], as Claude, the woman who takes dictation for paralyzed stroke victim Jean-Dominique Bauby ([[Performer~P199646~Mathieu Amalric~mathieuamalric]]). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
