Today we celebrate French actress Dominique Blanc, who has been a staple in period flicks since the early-’90s. I first remember seeing her as Isabelle Adjani‘s saucy sidekick in Queen Margot (1994), and from then on, it seemed like she was everywhere in period films. Most recently, she had a cameo in the first season of Versailles as the Dowager Queen Anne of Austria, but her films stretch back twenty years to include some of the most well-known costume flicks.
