Biography

Soft-spoken and poised, yet capable of surprising intensity, French-Canadian film actress Geneviève Bujold emerged from the stages of Quebec and the cinema of France to become one of the most sought after film stars of the 1970s. Following her screen debut opposite Yves Montand in "La Guerre est finie" (1965), Bujold became an international star with her Academy Award-nominated performance in "Anne of the Thousand Days" (1969). As one of Hollywood's most promising leading ladies, Bujold starred in a slew of mainstream feature films, including the disaster movie "Earthquake" (1974), Brian De Palma's "Obsession" (1976), and the Michael Crichton thriller "Coma" (1978). Moving into the next decade, the veteran actress held her own opposite the likes of Clint Eastwood in "Tightrope" (1984) and joined filmmaker Alan Rudolph's band of regulars on such projects as "Trouble in Mind" (1985). Working with fellow Canadian David Cronenberg, she delivered a fearless performance opposite Jeremy Irons in "Dead Ringers" (1988). Remaining active in her later career, Bujold preferred independent productions like the dark comedy "The House of Yes" (1997) and such Montreal-based endeavors as the end of the world drama "Last Night" (1999) and the coming-of-age comedy "The Trotsky" (2009). Always bringing an air of class to each role, Bujold remained one of the more respected actresses of her generation.

Bonus Trivia

.

"She has that indefinable something which is fast disappearing. She doesn't resemble anyone else, she doesn't try to copy anyone's style. In short, she's herself with gestures that are strictly hers and a rare face never seen on the screen before." --Yves Montand on Bujold

.

"Acting and being a mother are all I know how to do. When the new baby was born, I thought I would probably never act again. I always think that at the end of each film. Yet, somehow, acting pulls me." --Genevieve Bujold
