Annette: Marion Cotillard on the Challenges of Singing Live on Set

This past week, I had the pleasure of speaking to Oscar-winning actor Marion Cotillard about her new movie, Annette. In the film, Cotillard plays Ann, an acclaimed opera soprano who’s in a relationship with the jealous, egotistical stand-up comedian Henry McHenry (Adam Driver). Together, they parent Annette, who’s depicted as a small puppet child who has the unusual ability to sing beautifully when light shines on her. For more on the film, you can check out my review.

During our conversation, Cotillard talked about the challenges of having to sing live on set during filming, how the experience of making this musical compared to her work in the film Nine as well as her work as Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, doing research with real sopranos, the art of performance, and more.
