Fu­ri­ous over the rev­e­la­tions that his lead actress made about tough con­di­tions on–set, Ab­del­latif Kechiche, the direc­tor of Blue Is the Warm­est Colour, which took the 2013 Palme d’Or at Cannes, re­tal­i­ated by de­scrib­ing Léa Sey­doux as an “ar­ro­gant, spoilt child”. Which hasn’t pre­vented her ca­reer from tak­ing off. Stronger than ever, she played Loulou de la Falaise in Ber­trand Bonello’s Saint Lau­rent biopic, and we’ll be see­ing a lot more of her in 2015. She takes top billing in the up­com­ing Benoît Jac­quot film ( Di­ary of a Cham­ber­maid ), stars along­side Colin Far­rell and Rachel Weisz in The Lob­ster by Greek direc­tor Yorgos Lan­thi­mos, and has achieved the ul­ti­mate ac­co­lade of be­ing cast as the next Bond girl op­po­site Daniel Craig’s sto­icism and six–pack in Spec­tre, un­der Sam Men­des, sched­uled for re­lease in Novem­ber. Rarely has an actress so con­vinc­ingly spanned the art–house / block­buster divide.
