Léa Seydoux self-isolates following the diagnosis of Covid – Deadline
EXCLUSIVE: Léa Seydoux’s trip to Cannes is in doubt following a positive Covid test, Deadline can reveal. A representative for the actress, who has four films in this year’s Cannes selection, said Seydoux is at the end of her recovery, that she is asymptomatic and fully vaccinated, but that she will remain at home in Paris by caution, after the advice of his doctors. She was originally due to arrive at the festival yesterday, but has not traveled.
We do not yet know if Seydoux will be able to attend press events and previews of his four Cannes feature films: that of Wes Anderson. The French Dispatch, that of Arnaud Desplechin Deception, that of Bruno Dumont France, and Ildikó Enyedi My wife’s story.
The French dispatch is due to premiere in Cannes on Monday evening, with Deception Tuesday, My wife’s story Wednesday, and France Thursday.
For now, say her representatives, she is resting and will only travel if she is in good health, respecting the Covid protocols put in place by the Festival and the French government. She and her team take a cautious approach to ensuring the safety of festival-goers, her filmmakers and colleagues.
Seydoux is on the cover of the special printed issue of Deadline produced for the Cannes Film Festival.
