Dutch actor, writer, director, and former fashion model Famke Janssen plays the Duchess, the proprietor of a brothel called the Palace, in “Redeeming Love.” After enduring years of abuse, Angel escapes from Duke. However, she is soon forced to turn to sex work and is later trapped at the Palace by the Duchess, who is a hard and cruel mistress. During a cast Q&A, Janssen revealed how important she thinks it is to tell a story like “Redeeming Love,” a film where “despite every evil force [Angel] encounters — people and life — she not only prevails, but she comes out stronger with love.”

During the Q&A, Janssen made it clear that she didn’t agree with her character morally in any way. However, she was impressed by the Duchess’ business acumen and admitted she was really fun to play. “A woman in that time, it was unheard of to have your own business … I can see where she was coming from and [she was] very much a survivor,” Janssen noted.

You may recognize this Dutch star as Jean Grey from the “X-Men” series and as Margaret from the European heist movie “The Vault.” Janssen said that the pandemic has given her a new appreciation for her career. “I feel so privileged that I’ve been able to do a job that provides humor or joy or excitement in people’s homes. We need these things right now,” she told Looper.

If you or anyone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, help is available. Visit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network website or contact RAINN’s National Helpline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).
