character: various movies & TV shows


Sometimes because of the story, or the potential publicity, an actress is required to undertake more than one role in a movie (eg good twin/evil twin). Occasionally, the characters need to look significantly different: if so I’m looking out for them for this sub-section.

The movies & TV shows

Un balcon sur la mer (2010): An estate agent shows a beautiful woman (Marie-Josée Croze) round a country house in the South of France; she may, or may not, be the girl he loved in Algeria. Khadija Hamdan was the makeup artist.

Zwart water (2010): Featured Hadewych Minis Christine and Karen. Carolina Leenders was the makeup artist; Erik Hillenbrink was the special makeup designer.

Goya’s Ghosts (2007): Natalie Portman played both Inés, Goyas’s model who is imprisoned by the Inquisition, and the prostitute Alicia, who may have been Inés’s daughter. Ivana Primorac was hair and makeup designer.

Coffee and Cigarettes (2003): Cate Blanchett played cousins Cate and Shelly in one segment. Judy Chin was the key makeup artist & hair stylist.
