DIANE DE POITIERS SERIES
FIRST ISABELLE ADJANI PHOTO
Behold the first photo of French diva Isabelle Adjani as the lead character in new French two part mini series DIANE DE POITIERS. This is just a costume rehearsal photo, as the production was pushed to September,
but it gives you a good impression. In the two 90 minute episodes from France 3, she will play the titular royal courtesan, who, endowed with insolent beauty and daring manager intermingling with politics, shared with King Henry II (Nicolas Duvauch- elle) twenty years her junior, the most burning passion in the history of France. In so doing, she defeated two dangerous rivals: the queen Catherine de Medici herself, whose name is associated with the bloody Saint Bartholomew's Night, and a royal favorite educated in the art of poisons. Jean Reno, Jeanne
Balibar and Mathieu Amalric will also star in this 16th century historical saga. It is interesting that almost 20 years after playing queen Margot, the daughter in law of Catherine de Medici, Adjani will now play the lover of Catherine's husband.
