French actress/singer Emmanuelle Seigner, 43, has stood by her husband as he fights extradition to the U.S. relating to a 1977 charge of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski, 76, pleaded guilty to the accusation but fled America on the eve of sentencing. Swiss police detained the Chinatown moviemaker at a film festival last September (09) and he has since been placed under house arrest at his ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland.
In a rare TV interview in Poland, Seigner, who recently revealed she and her children, Elvis and Morgane, are not living with Polanski, admits their life is “good” but “not ideal”.
But she is sure the case will be “solved and over pretty soon”, adding, “The toughest moments are behind us.”
The full interview is due to be aired on Poland’s TVN24 network on Monday (15Mar10).
