Meeting movie actor Daniel Lundh in Paris

In Paris, I met Daniel Lundh, one of Woody Allen’s shining stars in his latest film, Midnight in Paris.  The film has a stellar cast of characters to start with, including Carla Bruni, multi dimensional First Lady of France, Marion Cotillard, who has won an Oscar as best actress, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams.  Daniel Lundh plays the role of a Spanish matador. With his handsome dark looks, he is the perfect looking Spanish matador. 

Recently, on a cool Spring afternoon in Paris, fashion plate linguist, Jojo Banaag and I were on our way to Laduree, in St. Germain, my favorite place for tea.  Jojo B. and I just love their warm tarte tatin (apple tarte) and Mont Blanc! Yummy! Before I could blink an eye, a young handsome man sprang in front of us, giving Jojo a big abrazo.  They started to chat like they were the best of friends.  It turned out that they both live in the same apartment building in a chic quarter of Paris.  I instantly liked his soft spoken charm and “no airs” attitude, and right away invited him to a dinner party I was hosting the next evening for my family and friends.  

Midnight in Paris will be shown in Europe this May or June.  The film will open the Cannes Film Festival this May. 

Daniel Lundh’s dark good looks landed him a role as a Spanish matador in Midnight in Paris, the latest film of Woody Allen.

Bosom buddies- Daniel L. and Jojo B.

Daniel L. readily accepted my invitation to a dinner next evening after our meeting.
