New project by Catherine Saint Laurent: “I needed something different after District 31”

Next winter in Télé-Québec we will be able to discover a new series called seems to go, where we discuss the daily lives of young people with cystic fibrosis. Actress Catherine Saint Laurent, the unforgettable Noélie St-Hilaire in District 31finds a leading role there, alongside Antoine Olivier Bellon, Joaquim Rubilard and Noémie Leduc Vodry.

We’ll discover the touching and illuminating story of four friends with cystic fibrosis who feel the urgent need to live when they know one of them may die before the end of summer. We will also learn that sick people are sometimes happier than healthy people. Jean-Christophe Rehel, poet and novelist, signs with this project his first television series. Sarah Bellerin directs the first season.

We had the pleasure of speaking recently with the actress who told us about this very different role of hers: “ It was the perfect project, my dream project after District 31. I needed something different after 31. I also wanted to see something more playful, in a character like that; There are not thousands of them on Quebec TV. I was really lucky to have come across this project. Also, playing with young people means changing territories. The energy was really different, we had the same humour, the same references, the atmosphere was lighter. »

She tells us more about her character: My character lives 100% of the time on oxygen, so it pulls the oxygen tank. If it’s only physical, it’s a challenge to act. […] He’s a character with so many nuances, so many colours, and it was clear where we could go with this character. […] His time is limited, so he is a character who is always looking for adventure and excitement. She demands friendship, because she can’t work or go to school, so she needs motivation. Sometimes it gets extreme and extreme. »
