Luc Besson – ‘The Lady’

February 22, 2011  |  News  |  No Comments

Can finally reveal I spent most of last year in Paris and Bangkok on ‘The Lady’, directed by Luc Besson, coaching Michelle Yeoh in her portrayal of Aung San Suu Kyi. Qote from Michelle in interview for Newsweek:

How did you prepare for the part?

I switched on into Daw Suu mode for six or seven months. I did an hour and a half of cardio every morning. She’s always been a very slender woman; I had to lose eight kilograms and trained like a marathon runner. Then I sat down with an English tutor for an hour and a half. (That was me :)

Happily credited in small box of ‘Director’s Team’. Thank you Luc!
