We started this year well off. A French production team was working on an adaptation of a Victor Hugo novel in Prague, in the Barandov Studio with Gerard Depardieu in leading actor’s role. In the movie (and in the book of course) there is a tame (or at least half-tame) wolf character that is friendly companion to Monsieur Depardieu

We travelled each week to Prague with the wolves for two months but it still was a fantastic treat: both the staff and the wolves can be described as awesome. Nelson and Volkó, our two accomoplished wolves played the requested role. Nelson laid down, stayed down and lifted his head up on command – needles to say he earned some credits for his performance.

Below you can find some pictures of Mr Depardieu walking with wolves out in the cold.
