Profile Bio Text
Geneviève Bujold (born 1 July 1942) is a Canadian actress best known for her portrayal of Anne Boleyn in the 1969 film Anne of the Thousand Days, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for best actress. Born in Montreal, Quebec, into a catholic French-Canadian working-class family. She received a strict convent education for 12 years before entering the Montreal`s Conservatory of Dramatic Art, where she was trained in the great classics of French theatre. She made her stage debut as Rosine in Le Barbier de Séville. She got her first major break in 1965, while on tour with a theatrical company in Paris, when French director Alain Resnais selected her for a role opposite Yves Montand in his film La Guerre est finie. This led to her staying in France for a time where she made two other films: Philippe de Broca`s Le Roi de Coeur, opposite Alan Bates and Louis Malle`s Le voleur, opposite Jean-Paul Belmondo. Upon her return to Canada, she married film director Paul Almond in 1967, and starred in three of his films: Isabel (1968) and The Act of the Heart (1970) and Journey (1972). She won the Canadian Film Award for best actress for both Isabel and The Act of the Heart. The couple divorced in 1973, but worked again together in Final Assignment (1980) and The Dance Goes On (1991).
After a long absence from Québec, she returned to appear in two films directed by Michel Brault; Les noces de papier (1989) and Mon amie Max (1994). In 1994, she signed on to play the lead character, initially called Captain Nicole Janeway, in the American television series Star Trek: Voyager. However she dropped out after filming just a few scenes of the first episode. She cited a number of reasons, including a TV series work schedule being too demanding, differences with the producers on how to play the character. The producers subsequently hired TV veteran Kate Mulgrew, and changed the captain`s name from Nicole to Kathryn at Mulgrew`s advice. Bujold lives in Malibu, California. She is the mother of two sons: Matthew (born in 1968) with husband Paul Almond, and Emmanuel (born in 1980) with companion Dennis Hastings. She continues to work, primarily in small budget films with independent production companies.
