After a week of sad news I was happy to hear from Lainconnu. She is working on an interesting project and would like to hear some of your thoughts.

Lainconnu is writing a drama for a competition organized by her local theater. In her play-  “Old actress introduces the young actor on the stage. I admit that a little inspired me history of Monsieur Delon and his daughter, but in my drama are completely different relationships between persons.”

Lainconnu is exploring the idea of the life of an actor.  “Every profession has some good and bad sides. People must make choices, more importantly, private life or work. The artistic professions – career. Does any price? How much can you sacrifice for your career? What not? What can be sorry, and why? What is happiness for the average person, if the same thing for an actor is happiness? Artists tend to fame, and then flee before the papparazzi. Where is the line?”

Lainconnu would like to hear your ideas about fame and happiness in the life of an actor. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about actor’s quest for fame and struggle for happiness.

When Lainconnu is not busy creating videos and writing plays she is writing short stories. In her second volume of short stories is one titled, “Blue eyes Samourai.”

Annie Girardot, a versatile French actress who played the doomed Milanese streetwalker in Luchino Visconti’s “Rocco and His Brothers” and, moving easily from drama to comedy, became France’s most popular actress of the 1970s, died on Monday in Paris. She was 79.

Girardot performed in more than 100 films and won France’s coveted Cesar award three times — in 1976 for best actress for her role in Jean-Louis Bertuccelli’s “Doctor Francoise Gailland,” for supporting actress for “Les Miserables” in 1995 and for supporting actress for her role as the possessive mother of a musician in Michael Haneke’s “Le Pianiste” in 2001.

Ms. Girardot had been treated for Alzheimer’s disease for nearly a decade and for the last two years had lived in a Paris nursing home. In France, she became the public symbol of the disease, and her daughter and granddaughter kept the public informed of her decline.

Alain Delon was the guest of honor in a live broadcast of the annual ceremony of the “TV Star.” The event was held at the Opera House in Kiev on February 27, 2011. The following videos show him at the airport, on the red carpet and at the award show. He recently tore ligaments in his wrist during a game of tennis  – and he still has to wear bandages on his arm.

Alain Delon is scheduled to be the guest of honor in a live broadcast of the annual ceremony of the “TV Star.” The event will be held at the Opera House in Kiev on February 27, 2011. According to sources Delon will stay just a day in the city.

Reports suggest that that after arriving  Delon will rest in the room at the 5-star hotel Hyatt before the evening event where he will receive his award. It is expected that fans will be able to get a signature of Delon if the Opera House arranges an autograph session.

In 2008 Mr. Delon was invited to  Kiev for the festival “Youth” but had to cancel his visit at the last minute. We hope these words from our source come true this year- “The legendary 75-year-old French actor Alain Delon is going to visit Kiev.”

Here’s a story of serendipity.  Today I was reading about the Grammy Award Show to be aired February 13, 2011. I was checking  to see who will be performing. I learned that tonight will be Mick Jagger’s first in-person Grammy appearance. Thinking about Mick led me to look for some information about him. In the course of that pursuit I discovered this photo of Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon. Total serendipity!

Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon

While the photo is undated it was probably circa 1968 when Mr. Delon and Ms Faithfull worked together in La Motocyclette.

I am always excited to find photos of Mr. Delon that I haven’t seen before. This photo raises so many question- Where would the three of them have been together? What are Marianne and Alain looking at? What is Mick thinking?  Is Mr. Delon wearing a wedding ring? Wasn’t he divorced by that time?

I have also concluded that like Kevin Bacon we are never more than a few degrees away from Alain Delon!
