Roman Polanski Made First Public Appearance Since Freed


Roman Polanski


The actor whose extradition for a child sex charge trial in the U.S. was denied, supported his wife at a music festival in Switzerland.

Roman Polanski made his first public appearance as a free man on Saturday, July 17 to support his singer wife Emmanuelle Seigner at a music festival in Switzerland. The "Rosemary's Baby" filmmaker regained his freedom on Monday after Swiss officials turned down U.S. prosecutors' requests to extradite him on a 33-year-old child-sex charge.

Polanski had been under house arrest at a luxury chalet in Gstaad since he was seized in Zurich last September en route to a film festival. And the director made his first public outing at a similar event - he attended the Montreux Jazz Festival to watch his musician wife perform.

Local news reports state the moviemaker was greeted by a throng of photographers and reporters as he made his way to watch the set, but refused to give any interviews.

However, a TV news interview with Polanski was later aired in Switzerland, in which he expressed his happiness at being free. He told reporters, "For the moment, I'm happy to be free and to be able to do the things I was kept from doing."
