What is a cameo?

What’s that bug there?

No, it is not a new kind of animal. It’s a term borrowed from English which itself comes from Italian which means « cameo ». And no, we’re not going to talk about women who take drugs either…

This term belongs to the world of theater and cinema. It is the furtive appearance of an actor or a celebrity. It is a kind of wink or exceptional participation that is, in most cases, not credited. A kind of guest or featuring if you prefer.

That’s it, it’s brief, but you’ll go to bed less silly tonight!
