The actress was fortunate to be taken care of immediately after her discomfort, as she was shooting a scene in a hospital.
The star of French cinema Catherine Deneuve, 76 years old, “responds well to treatment” and “to rest oneself” after suffering a stroke on Tuesday on a shoot, we learned from the entourage of the actress.
“As announced, there is no motor deficit, it is resting, while additional exams are in progress”said a member of his entourage who requested anonymity.
“She responds well to treatment, the stroke is really limited, she was very lucky to be treated very quickly in the hospital where her discomfort occurred during the shooting”, added this source.
The discomfort of Catherine Deneuve occurred Tuesday around 15:00 at the hospital of Gonesse (Val d'Oise), where the icon of French cinema turned a scene of the film In his lifetime Emmanuelle Bercot. She was taken immediately by this establishment for first aid, before its transfer to a hospital in Paris, said the same source, confirming information from the Parisian.
The actress's family announced on Wednesday that she had “suffered a very limited ischemic stroke and therefore reversible” and should “of course take some time off”.
For several weeks, the icon of French cinema, which connects projects, revolved in In his lifetime Emmanuelle Bercot, alongside Benoît Magimel and Cécile de France.
This film Emmanuelle Bercot, with whom she has already made two films (She leaves and Heads up), tells the story of a son (Benoît Magimel) condemned by cancer and his mother, played by Catherine Deneuve, while a doctor finds himself in the middle of this couple and tries to do his job.
Scheduled to last nine weeks, this shoot, which began on October 11, has continued since the hospitalization of Catherine Deneuve. It could continue for some time in his absence, by modifying the filming plan, according to sources close to the film. Producers did not respond to AFP's solicitations.
