FAMOUS British actress Jacqueline Bisset was honoured with the Actor's Mission award on June 24 at the 14th International "Art Film" Film Festival currently being held between June 23 and July 1 in Trenčianske Teplice, in the Trenčín region.
Following the award ceremony, Bisset attached a brass plaque bearing her name to the local "Bridge of Fame", which also bears plaques received by actors such as Nastassja Kinski and Catherine Deneuve.
"Each time I'm invited to a country, I view it as a gift. Maybe many of you don't know how much it means to be awarded. There are rumours that actors are spoilt, but we really appreciate awards. They mean more for us if they are awarded for a particular work, not for the fact that we are celebrities. It's wonderful to be here. Thank you!" Bisset said.
The legendary actress came to Slovakia on June 22 evening to open the festival, and will stay until it ends. Bisset has received Golden Globe nominations for her roles in "The Sweet Ride", "Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?", "Under the Volcano" and "Joan of Arc". In the 1970's, she was chosen as the most beautiful actress of all time by Newsweek magazine.
