QUESTION: WHAT CONNECTS SONJA KINSKI AND EMANUELLE SEIGNER – APART FROM BOTH BEING GLAMOROUS ACTRESSES?
Sonja’s mother, acclaimed German-born actress Natassja Kinski, was directed by Polanski in the 1980 movie Tess and from there followed a much-publicised romance with the Polish director.
Natassja credits everything to Polanski. “I fell in love with him at the beginning,” says Nastassja, who met Roman at a party in Germany when she was 15. “He was really a gentleman, not at all like the things I had heard,” she continues. “He introduced me to beautiful books, plays, movies. He educated me.”
28-year-old Sonja Kinski is following in her mother’s footsteps. She is an actress, known for Dark Hearts (2012), All God’s Children Can Dance (2008) and Diamond on Vinyl (2013).
She has two films coming out this year: Beautiful Now and Allergic to Cats.
Emanuelle Seigner is married to the controversial Polish-born director and they have two children.
