And why not?  If you were directing someone and found him or her to be
a talented, capable actor/actress, wouldn't YOU want to use them
again?  Lots of directors have done this.  Two modern examples that
spring to mind are Terry Gilliam and Ken Russell.  (Notice how Russell
in particular has used Sammi Davis and Amanda Donohoe in his last five
or so films...)
