Jacqueline Bisset-Episode 144

Film and television icon Jacqueline Bisset joins Matt in a very special Talk For Two episode.

Ms. Bisset’s career spans five decades, and includes legendary performances in Cul-de-Sac, Murder on the Orient Express, Airport, and the Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film, Day for Night. Ms. Bisset was nominated for an Emmy for her turn as Isabelle d’Arc in the CBC miniseries, Joan of Arc. She is a Golden Globe winner and has received the National Order of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest civilian merit.

In this interview, Ms. Bisset opens up about working with the late Dennis Hopper on his final film, The Last Film Festival. She discusses how Mr. Hopper’s death affected the film. She also reveals why director Linda Yellen has chosen to release it now, after nearly 7 years in development.

Ms. Bisset also speaks candidly about her career, and why, although she has appeared in several renowned films, she feels she hasn’t worked with as many in the business as she would like to. Ms. Bisset discusses the kinds of projects and actors she would love to tackle at this time in her career. She truly is a living, working legend.

The Last Film Festival is available now On Demand.
