The 8th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Female Acting - Isabelle Adjani

 In my opinion one of the great screen beauties, at the tender age of nineteen, Isabelle Adjani was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress in Francois Truffaut’s The Story Of Adele H. Forty years on, Adjani has a varied catalogue of stellar performances and continues to feature prominently in French cinema to this day. Adjani’s mixed-race background saw her growing up in a bilingual household, and thus, being able to break through language barriers with graceful fluency, she has starred not only in French films such as Subway, Camille Claudel and La Reine Margot, but also English-language features The Tenant, The Driver and Possession (one of the most ferocious performances I’ve ever seen in a film!), and even perform in German in Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu, Phantom Der Nacht.
