While in her hometown for Eyes Wide Open, the extravagant masked ball to benefit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Rachelle talked with The Gazette about the paparazzi, her upcoming film projects and fashion.
She has three film projects wrapped and soon to roll: political drama Casino Jack, with Kevin Spacey; psychological thriller The Caller, opposite Steven Moyer; and closest to home, Barney’s Version, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Friday and played the Toronto internation Film Festival Sunday, based on the novel by Mordecai Richler and with an impressive cast including Paul Giamatti as Barney Panofsky.
Richler and his Montreal speaks to Lefevre. It is, after all, part of her own history. She is a true Montrealer, having lived all over the region: in Notre Dame de Grâce, Nuns’ Island, Rosemère, Snowdon, downtown, Côte St. Luc and Town of Mount Royal.
And to respect her father’s French heritage as well as make the Jewish grandparents happy, she was named Rachelle, which works in both cultures.
