Korravai Posted March 13, 2008 Share Posted March 13, 2008 Irène Jacob is a French-born Swiss actress considered one of the preeminent Swiss actresses of her generation. Jacob gained international recognition and acclaim through her work with Polish film director Krzysztof Kieslowski, who cast her in the lead role of The Double Life of Véronique and Three Colors: Red. She came to represent an image of European sophistication, through her "classic beauty and thoughtful, almost melancholic style of acting." Irène Marie Jacob was born July 15, 1966 in Suresnes, France, a western suburb of Paris. The youngest child with three older brothers, Irène grew up in a highly educated and intellectual family and environment: her father was a physicist, her mother a psychologist, one brother a musician, and two brothers scientists.  In 1969, at the age of three, Irène moved with her family to Geneva, Switzerland where she became interested in the arts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irene_Jacob http://www.irenejacob.net/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
