Splice is about 2 scientists who tinker with animal DNA and when they get tired of following the rules, they add a little human DNA to the mix, which stirs things up! The experiment creates Dren. (Drenolution!) Delphine Chanéac will play the adult version of Dren as she stars alongside Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley . Keep reading on for some personal info on Delphine, a video interview and a few movie trailers of Splice. [UPDATE 6/4/10: After checking out Dephine's info here, go check out my movie review of Splice!]
At first Dren is a wee bit of a cute little scared creature but then evolves into a beautiful human-chimera.
As she grows, her bonds with her creators are strong, but then the bond turns deadly. Delphine Chanéac plays the grown version of Dren and will give U.S. denizens their first real look at Delphine, even though she’s been in the entertainment business since she’s been 15 years old.
Just to be clear, Vincenzo Natali’s (director / writer) Splice is geared towards more of a technological fiction than science fiction but definitely delves into the what-if of scientific tinkering. It wowed the Sundance Film Festival crowd and after putting in 10 years of working on the indie film, his focus and dedication is paying off!
Delphine Chanéac was born 14 November 1978. She’s a model and actress. Aside from the upcoming Splice, she’s been one other U.S released film: The Pink Panther, where she played a ticket checker. But this isn’t her first movie, by far.
The main part of her career has been in foreign TV & films where she’s been in To the Extreme, The Brice Man, Incontrôlable & Verso. Verso came out in late ’09, early 2010 and is a crime thriller, but the movie she is co-starring in that is still in production is titled The Big Black.
The Big Black takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the main character, Jack, is on a journey fleeing from his past. It’s called a dark odyssey & a love story. During his journey, he meets Eve (played by Delphine), a mysterious hitch-hiker, with her own agenda.
Aside from movies coming out this year, Delphine has had many 1-spot guest roles on 22 different TV shows, with a recurring role in La vie devant nous, as Pauline. But before you go scrambling off to check it out, these roles, stemming back to 1997, are all French television productions.
At 15, she signed her first modeling contract for an agency called Success. At 16, she landed a role in the TV series Papa revient demai. Her personal interests include dance, horse riding (high level), karate (Girl after my own heart there!) and bicycle riding.
I think that once the news gets out about Delphine, we’ll be seeing her in more U.S. movie productions. What do you think?
