"I'm not an American actor, I'm French and I continue in France. If I could make another silent movie in America, I would. But I'll always be a French actor in America. Nonetheless, there are a few ideas I would like to develop," Dujardin said.

The actor also said he had a lot of fun working on 'The Artist' and researched the role by watching old movies. "It was not really intellectual, and I'm not an intellectual. No, I watched a lot of movies. Douglas Fairbanks movies, Gene Kelly movies. I had fun pretending to be a movie star in 1920s," he said.
