Marcel Proust : "Je n'aurais plus souhaité comme autrefois de pouvoir immobiliser les attitudes de la Berma, le bel effet de couleur qu'elle donnait un instant seulement dans un éclairage aussitôt évanoui et qui ne se reproduisait pas, ni lui faire redire cent fois un vers. Je comprenais que mon désir d'autrefois était plus exigeant que la volonté du poète, de la tragédienne, du grand artiste décorateur qu'était son metteur en scène, et que ce charme répandu au vol sur un vers, ces gestes instables perpétuellement transformés, ces tableaux successifs, c'était le résultat fugitif, le but momentané, le mobile chef-d'oeuvre que l'art théâtral se proposait et que détruirait en voulant le fixer l'attention d'un auditeur trop épris."

(A la recherche du temps perdu, Le Côté de Guermantes)

"I had no longer any desire, as on the former occasion, to be able to arrest and perpetuate Berma’s attitudes, the fine colour effect which she gave for a moment only in a beam of limelight which at once faded never to reappear, nor to make her repeat a single line a hundred times over. I realised that my original desire had been more exacting than the intentions of the poet, the actress, the great decorative artist who supervised her productions, and that that charm which floated over a line as it was spoken, those unstable poses perpetually transformed into others, those successive pictures were the transient result, the momentary object, the changing masterpiece which the art of the theatre undertook to create and which would perish were an attempt made to fix it for all time by a too much enraptured listener"

Marcel Proust Translated from the French by C. K. Scott Moncrieff

"Proudly androgynous, Linder models in both men’s and women’s runway shows. So it is no surprise that her personal hero is Tilda Swinton. “I admire her style so much—I think she is amazing. She can do it all; she can play a man, a woman, a horse!” she says. And so, we suspect, can Linder.

Asked if her new career (actress) is scary, she says of course it is: “But if it isn’t scary, I don’t want to do it." - VOGUE, APRIL 4, 2018. Hooked on Louis Vuitton’s Capucines With Erika Linder

"The actress Sara Serraiocco is the person stealing the show on Counterpart so far. Serraiocco had a not-so unique path to acting: she started out as a dancer. Now one of the hottest talents in Europe" (Decider)
