Other than having dark hair and dark eyes, they don’t look alike.

I loved her as Sofie Fatale. A lot of people think she’s actually Eurasian, but she’s just Ashkenazi Jewish and French.

She resembles her mama Pascale Audret.






Here’s her papa Francis Dreyfus:


I couldn’t find a picture of him when he was young, but I bet he was handsome.

Francis and Pascale made beautiful children. :)

follers is she related to Julia-Louis Dreyfus? according to Wikipedia both are “distant relative” of Captain Dreyfus

Alfred Dreyfus was descended from Israël Dreyfus, who was born in 1727.

Julia Louis-Dreyus is descended from Marx Mordekhay Dreyfus, who was born in 1727.

They don’t share a common “Dreyfus” ancestor as far back as that, but they could earlier. I just don’t know Louis-Dreyfus’ lineage before that.

As for Julie Dreyfus, I don’t even know what her paternal grandparents’ names were.

thank you. Alfred Dreyfus was Alsatian as Julie’s father.
