Trivia.

She was cast as Captain Janeway in “Star Trek: Voyager” (1995). However, after a day and a half of filming the pilot, she and the producers mutually agreed that she was not a good fit for the role. Subsequently, the producers selected their second choice for the part.

According to Richard Burton’s biography, “And God Created Burton,” Bujold had an affair with him while filming “Anne of the Thousand Days” (1969). She was in a relationship with Dennis Hastings from 1977 to 2017, and they have a son, Emmanuel Claude Bujold, born in 1980.

Bujold was cast as Baroness Kessler in Roman Polanski’s “The Ninth Gate” (1999), but she had to give up the role due to illness. Her son with director Paul Almond, Matt Almond, is also an actor and director.

Bujold is related to Louis Cyr, known as the strongest person in the world, and she is of French-Canadian and a small amount of Irish descent. She was cast as Mary in “Mary, Queen of Scots” (1971) but declined the role due to its similarity to “Anne of the Thousand Days” (1969). This led to a lawsuit with Universal, resulting in a three-picture deal compromise.

She is the daughter of Laurette (Cavanagh), a maid, and Joseph Firmin Bujold, a bus driver.

Quotes

  • “Her hair is shiny and gleaming as a stallion’s mane, her eyes big and brown as chocolate jawbreakers, her tiny mouth a rosebud of surprise. Packed into her five-foot, four-inch doll’s frame is an intriguing mixture of purloined innocence, succulent sexuality, and guerrilla warfare.” Rex Reed, Valentines and Vitriol, p. 258, 1977.
  • “I confess it, I love the camera. When it’s not on me, I’m not quite alive.” Genevieve Bujold, Time 3/30/70.
  • “I don’t like to intellectualize about my acting. I don’t sit around and study the pages of a script over and over again. I don’t worry whether the period is contemporary or three hundred years ago. Human beings are all alike. The main thing in acting is honesty, to feel the humanity and get to the essence of the character. You can’t put anything into a character that you haven’t got within you.” Genevieve Bujold, Seventeen, 11/69.
  • Un role m’apprend quelque chose quand j’arrive a trouver le courage de faire ce qui me fait peur, a surmonter des craintes terribles. J’en ressors plus forte. Genevieve Bujold, Revue du Cinema, 4/91
  • “It isn’t so easy to live with an actress. I married Genevieve–not Isabel or St. Joan or Anne Boleyn–but I live with them all…There is a curious internal process going on in her that begins the moment she signs to do a picture. At the first “Action!” she has become the character, and it never leaves her until long after the last “Cut!” Paul Almond (ex-husband)
  • [on her film Still Mine (2012)] I liked the script because it doesn’t treat old people like they’re all the same or tell them what to do: be impeccable, remain the same, and never die. I picked the film because it has a quiet way of growing on you, of slowly, gently becoming implanted in your heart.
  • At this age [seventy-one] I am incapable of doing things I don’t want to do. I live modestly, so that I’m never forced to do a job to pay a mortgage, and I don’t own anything. I simply do not do what’s not essential. This is because I have realized the secret of life: all the external decorations are less important than giving yourself the gift of time.
