A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
jeune premier(zhoen pruh-MYAY)
noun: The role of a young hero; also an actor who plays such a part.
[From French, literally first young man. Jeune premiere is the feminine equivalent of the term.]
"'Definitely, it was a risk,' the actor (Vincent Perez) said, 'but that's
the only way to grow, to make the work personal, and that's what I've
always been looking for. The trouble is, when you start as a jeune
premier, they put you in a little box and want you to stay there.'"
"He (Vietnamese artist Tran Trung Tin) began as a successful jeune premier
actor, but was sufficiently upset by the war and its side effects, in a
human rather than a political way, that he was impelled to start putting
his distress down in images on paper."
Only the hand that erases can write the true thing. -Meister Eckhart, theologian (c. 1260-1327)
