Modeling is very different from acting. Mastering the poker face look and the walking style is not every actor’s cup of tea,  but Portuguese star Alba Baptista went on to prove her versatility with one of her critically acclaimed projects Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris. During an interview with a famous media platform W Magazine, the actor spoke about her insecurities and struggles during the filming of the movie. While talking about sharing a great rapport with her co-stars Lesley Manville and Isabelle Huppert, the actor said-

“They both gave me lessons that I’ll carry with me throughout my whole career. As a young actor, it’s very easy to silence your voice and do what you’re told. Isabelle was just the most confident actress that I’ve witnessed on set, so observing her taught me how to be confident in my choices and instincts.”
