2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 12: Catherine Deneuve

Welcome to DAY TWELVE of the 2013 TCM Summer Under the Stars blogathon!  Just think, if this were the 12th day of Christmas, it would be over now.  But it’s not!

Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight Catherine Deneuve!

First, a little Deneuve trivia: According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Catherine Deneuve auditioned for the role of Francesca Johnson in The Bridges of Madison County, a part that ultimately went to Meryl Streep.  A bigger casting near-miss (for me, at least) is that she turned down the role of Tracy DiVicenzo in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.  The role, which is iconic now (again, for me), went to Diana Rigg.

SUTS and Oscar: Catherine Deneuve was nominated for one Oscar – Best Actress for her performance in 1992’s Indochine. She lost to Emma Thompson for Howard’s End.

Now onto the blogging!
