Kristin Scott Thomas is a multinational star in the literal sense: She was born in England, lives in France and appears in British, French and American movies.
But one of the films she's most proud of hasn't been widely seen in any of those places. The 1994 movie known to American audiences as "An Unforgettable Summer" was shot in Romania, and Scott Thomas spoke all her lines in the native language.
"The deal was they were going to dub me. But in the end they didn't bother because I was able to say it with enough conviction," the 41-year-old actress told The Associated Press.
Scott Thomas didn't quite learn Romanian during the filming, but she knew exactly what she was saying because she had all the lines translated into French, which she speaks fluently besides English.
