“Francesca Chillemi is extraordinary”
«I was on the jury when Francesca was elected Miss Italy. And I also voted for her », says the 60-year-old actress. In recent years she has become more and more beautiful, inside and out. She was a girl, she has become a woman, a mother, she has great sensitivity and a big heart. She is an actress who has grown up in an extraordinary way. I’ve never had some of Francesca’s talents and thanks to her, working with her, I was able to express them».
She also hopes to have taught her something: «I have had great teachers, I have been a very lucky woman. I’ve worked with incredible actors. Anyone who has been lucky enough to receive such important gifts is lucky if one day they can return them. It happened that I could make suggestions. To Francesca, and also to the younger actors. And seeing that those suggestions were taken was wonderful. In this I am similar to Sister Angela: the desire to give to others is an aspect that unites us a lot”.
