French actress Marina Foïs graces the February 2nd, 2024 cover of Madame Figaro. The cover, shot by Thiemo Sander, features Foïs in a stylish ensemble of Louis Vuitton coat, sunglasses, shoes and ring, paired with classic Levi’s jeans.
Throughout the issue, stylist Cécile Martin selects other chic Louis Vuitton and Rabanne outfits for Foïs. The beauty team includes Etienne Sekola for hair, Harold James for make-up and Rachel Levy for manicures.
In a conversation with Madame Figaro, Foïs delves into the essence of her craft, revealing the layers that make her performances stand out. Known for her roles in films like “Captives” and the Netflix series “Furies,” Foïs’ approach to acting is both nuanced and profound.
A four-time nominee for the César Award for Best Actress, Foïs shares insights into her role choices, emphasizing the appeal of uncharted territory in her career.
Foïs’ relationship with her characters is complex. She doesn’t feel the need to like them in order to portray them convincingly. Instead, she finds strength in the challenge of understanding those whose actions and motivations are at odds with her own values.
The conversation also touches on the subject of motherhood, both in her roles and in her personal life. Foïs describes motherhood as a transformative journey that has enriched her understanding of human emotions and relationships. This profound personal experience informs her portrayal of characters, adding depth and authenticity to her performances.
In “Furies,” Foïs takes on the role of Furie, a character who embodies strength and moral ambiguity. This role, she notes, satisfies her craving for action-packed narratives, a departure from her previous work. Her enthusiasm for exploring different genres and complex characters is palpable, reflecting her commitment to pushing the boundaries of her craft.
