Sarah discovered her dual passion for history and costume right around the age of twelve. Dragged kicking and screaming to her first Renaissance Faire at Black Point, she was convinced she was going to hate it, but to her surprise, she fell head over heels in love with the world of reenactment and dress up immediately. Her undergraduate degree is in Clothing & Textile Design, and she has a Master's in Art History and Visual Culture. When she’s not hauling crap to SCA events and ren faires, Sarah enjoys reading true crime books, writing fiction, and sewing historical clothing from the Middle Ages through the 20th-century. One of these days, she might even start updating her old costuming blog again.

    Blergh. I can’t really explain it, much less justify it, but blergh. One thing, though: The man who was proposed a remake of Fanfan la Tulipe in the title role and said yes deserves to be staked to an anthill. Just sayin’

    A correction to a confusing scenario – Vincent Perez starred in two movies with similar names: Fanfan (1993, aka Fanfan & Alexandre) and Fanfan la Tulipe (2003, title often shortened). The screenshot above is from the 1993 film, which starred Sophie Marceau as Fanfan (as seen in the screenshot) and Perez as Alexandre, a character based on the film’s director, Alexandre Jardin, who also wrote the novel on which the film is based. It’s set in contemporary times, but in that screenshot, Fanfan and Alexandre are in costumes on a movie set of 1813 Vienna.
    Perez played the titular character in Fanfan la Tulipe (which I have not seen) and is a remake of a 1952 swashbuckler. To add to the confusion, I believe Sophie Marceau’s modern character in the 1990s novel/film was named or nicknamed after that swashbuckling Fanfan.

    He is easy on the eye – for sure. I just knew him from “La Reign Margot”. Love that movie. It’s a who’s who with all those Frence actors. Don’t know why they are keeping the dvd price of that movie so high. But boy he’s been in more costume dramas than I would have guessed. And often playing the title role. I’m gonna hunt those films down. But have to re-watch my “Cyrano” dvd and give him my undivided attention 😉.
