Philippe Noiret was a wonderful actor and loved his trade. It saddened me to hear of his death as he was the kind of man that had been around for such a long time and in so many good movies that you felt he was almost part of the family. I am sorry I missed his last stage appearance in Love Letters with Anouk Aimée. He loved acting both on the stage and in movies and will be missed.
Once, asked what his dearest possessions were, he replied that he didn’t possess what he most valued in the world, his wife and his daughter.
