This year’s BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL has just concluded. Here is one of the guests whom I met at the event:
With Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis for parents, an acting career was a given for 20 year-old Lily-Rose Depp. She plays Catherine of Valois, the future Queen of England and wife of Henry V in the historical drama THE KING, which screened at this year’s Festival. Writing in ‘The Film Stage’, Rory O’Connor described her performance as “a excellent cameo”.
It’s her second period drama, after her 2016 role as Kate Barlow alongside Natalie Portman in PLANETARIUM. Her upcoming projects include the thriller DREAMLAND with Gary Oldman and Arnie Hammer and the sci-fi film VOYAGERS alongside Colin Farrell, both in post-production.
She signed my portrait sketch at the Gala Screening of THE KING at the Embankment Garden Cinema on Thursday 3 October.
