WCW: Dominique Blanc


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.


Indochine (1992)


Queen Margot (1994)


L’Alle du Roi (1996)


Un Pique-nique Chez Osiris (2001)


Dumas (2010)


À la Recherche du Temps Perdu (2011)


Alexandra David-Néel: J’irai au Pays des Neiges (2012)


Versailles (2015-)



About the author

Sarah Lorraine


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.

    I would love to see L’alle de Roi and A la Recherche du temps perdu as well as Dumas. Are they all on Amazon Prime?
