My french shadowlist is a nightmare to prepare. So many household names that i would like to include but not enough places. There is so many old and frail old french people famous enough to be on the list. That’s so frustrating

Do you play with the 'only a maximum of 25 people from last year are allowed to return' rule?

Yes Absolutely. But there is currently more than 25 people I’d like to keep from this year…

Gabriel Matzneff ought to be on the French list. The French Jeffrey Epstein. Old, lonely, ostracized...

 

Gabriel Matzneff — Wikipédia (wikipedia.org)

 

And now, that the last great generation of French actors (Depardieu, Auteuil) are over seventy and work less, one has to pay more attention to the health of Fabrice Luchini, Vincent Lindon, Didier Bourdon, Thierry Lhermitte etc. 

 

Some of the best actors of the 21the Century. I will be very sad if something happens to them.
