Laetitia in a new miniseries, early 2003


Veteran Italian directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani will start shooting early next year on two-part historical miniseries "Luisa Sanfelice," with Laetitia Casta in advanced negotiations to play the leading role. It's an Italian miniseries based on the 1865 Alexandre Dumas novel. The fictionalized love story based on real characters centers on an 18th century Naples aristocrat and her romance with a fellow rebel during a bid to overthrow the monarchy.


This is really good news, remember The Blue Bicycle and Lea. At right you can see what her fan's thinks about this news:

Laetitia Casta rejects comparisons with Brigitte Bardot



Hello Magazine 13 august 2002.

Most women might be flattered by comparisons to the young Brigitte Bardot, but French model Laetitia Casta – already something of a cultural icon in her own right – is determined to carve out her own path.

In 1999, Laetitia, whose beauty is often compared to that of the legendary French screen star, was – like Brigitte before her – chosen to pose as the model for Marianne, the symbol of the French Revolution.

But, says the 24-year-old, that is where the similarities end. “There is only one Brigitte Bardot,” she told Britain’s Mail On Sunday You magazine. “I am Laetitia and I do things differently.”

Laetitia has already proved that she is far more than just a pretty face. The model has amassed an estimated £2 million fortune, which has allowed her to give up the catwalk in order to be a full-time mother to her nine-month-old daughter Sahteene and to follow her acting dream. She has appeared in six films to date, including Asterix And Obelix Take On Caesar with Gerard Depardieu and Les Âmes Fortes opposite John Malkovich.

Laetitia Casta prepares for a return to the world of fashion  



She is connected to a powerful American models agency.
Shortly before having her daughter Sahteene, eight months ago, Laetitia Casta announced her intention to leave the world of fashion to dedicate herself exclusively to the cinema. Nevertheless, after almost a year with her  young  Sahteene , and with lots of public appearances, the beautiful Corse announces her return to fashion, without leaving the cinema. 

She has signed in with the all-powerful agency IMG, and her manager (?) will be Anne Nelson. The same one that represents stars like Gisele Bündchen, Elizabeth Hurley, Hilary Swank or Carolyn Murphy. 

Anne Nelson, fulfilling her new functions already, has explained to the press the plans for Laetitia Casta . Thus, to take care of her commitments professional, the French will live between London and New York, city where she lives with the photographer Stephane Sednaoui . And Laetitia  will be occupied with the intervention in several films and different contracts fashionable.
Let us hope that alliance between IMG and Laetitia Casta turn out to be a success, like she did not have with its previous agency, Madison. That ended up with Madison  suing Laetitia Casta
for breaking their contract. (red am.) 

Think that the fact that Laetitia is returning to the world of fashion is something we all look forward to!! (red. am.)

Picture not associated with the article, but she looks sporty on it...


  18.05.2002 Laetitia is going to act in a new French movie, starting in September 2002  

  Filming in September for Laetitia Casta-from the passage in Cannes as ambassador of L'Oreal, Laetitia Casta has confided to the newspaper "France Soir" that she would be playing on the side of Benoit Magimel  (award for male performance in Cannes 2001 for his role in "La Pianiste") in the second long play film of Damien Odoul  ("Le Souffle") the filming of which begins on September. 

The young woman who had her debut in cinema on 1998 in "Asterix & Obelix" by Claude Zidi, remains nevertheless discrete about her role. "It's a love story" she simply indicates "It's my most important project, a scenario that touches me particularly" 

She also specifies, underlining that "the director is young and really free"

She herself affirms that she feels "neither actress nor model". "I am myself. I am free, everybody tells me that I'm a fool to think that, but yes, I'm free", insists the young woman. 

Asked about the fiasco of "Rue des Plaisirs" by Patrice Leconte of which she was the heroine, she responds that "the in-success like the success are not explained at all". "Forcefully, this turns upside down. Everybody thinks of the director and that's bad. You give yourself, you'd like that everybody went at your meeting and that doesn't happen on all times" ,"but it's not controllable and that's good", she concludes.
