One day she arrived late.

I was the set manager and she knew I was going to yell at her.

So she looked at me and said:

"It's a shame !

It's scandalous !

They added trucks to the ring road!”

There, it was Marion.

She took out ten a day like that

We stopped in the squares, she told me her memories … ”

A true mountebank

“in the noble sense of the term”

“The roads were his life.

She spent forty, fifty years of her life doing dates in towns you don't even know the name of.

She took her pilgrim's staff and her three Yorkies.

I saw her take, I don't know how many times, the TGV in extremis where she almost forgot on the platform her smallest and sickest dog who couldn't follow her”, says Luq Hamett
