Maria Falconetti. Ingrid Bergman. Milla Jovovich. Lelee Sobieski.
That long list of notable names has another promising addition – Virginie Comte. She played Joan of Arc in the episode of Warrior Women, documentary series hosted by Lucy Lawless and recently aired on Discovery Europe. It is strange to see television documentaries with historic subjects being increasingly dependent on recreations, thus being good opportunity for some promising acting talent.
Virginie Comte was, for example, much more convincing in her role of Joan of Arc than Milla Jovovich in Luc Besson's film.I hope that this brief appearance might lead to much bigger roles.
