Published by: Les Editions Albert René
First album edition: 2001
The latest Asterix book sees Asterix and Obelix celebrating their joint birthday party back in the Gaulish village – and some surprise guests have been invited! Meanwhile, Julius Caesar has to deal with his old enemy Pompey, who is looking for supporters among the legions stationed in Gaul.
And just what part do two old friends play in the story – Tremensdelirius, from Asterix and Caesar’s Gift, and the lovely Panacea, first encountered in Asterix and the Legionary? After many exciting adventures, all is revealed.
What the druids have to say about the album
On returning to the village, our heroes meet an actress who plays tragic roles and looks just like Panacea. Responding to readers’ huge appreciation of Panacea, who has been played in the meantime by Laetitia Casta in a film, the author now gives us two Panaceas in the same album.
The spirit of the series is fully respected, and the legend lives on. The album is even more successful than the previous one. With tailor-made public relations and appropriate marketing, Asterix remains a unique hero.
Asterix and the Actress is the album in which we meet Asterix and Obelix’s parents for the first time. Well, not so sure: we’ve already come across them in a short 4-page story about the day when Asterix and Obelix were born. This was brought out by Albert Uderzo to celebrate the 35th birthday of the heroes he had created with his friend René Goscinny.
