Marc, we can see you at the theater all summer long pedal boat
Yes, with Stephane E. Roy. We took on a big challenge by making the pedal boat a character in its own right. It’s a camera between two childhood friends lost in the middle of the sea who are about to take stock of their lives and tell each other their four truths. The pedal boat has become a circus construction as it floats in the air. It’s very physical! It’s my first summer in theater because I often shoot in the summer.

Has your role as Yves Jacob changed the public’s view?
Yes, people started to recognize me. Even today, I find it difficult to measure the extent of this impact. People look at me like I’m Yves Jacob! It’s just love I’ve said goodbye to anonymity. I don’t get annoyed about anything on the Autobahn anymore! (laughs) It made me a better person. Seriously, it gave me all sorts of options.

Do you have any other back-to-school projects?
Yes, I tune in The perfect moments. I play a new character meeting Judith, played by Marie-Thérèse Fortin. They will collaborate on a music album. I’m very happy about it because it allows me to make the connection between my past as a musician and my profession as an actor. I was able to return to the guitar. I would also like to do cinema again – my last film was in 2013.

In addition to the game and the music, your trip was particularly varied.
Yes, I took several freeway exits. (laughs) Some have a passion and stick with it, but I had to explore it. I’ve made good and bad choices, but in the end those experiences made me who I am. I liked music, gambling, social studies, handicrafts. It clears my head. I have a business wood with my father-in-law. We make furniture for fun. I never liked being pigeonholed. I like to be surprised…

Your children seemed to want to follow in your footsteps. Is it still like that?
It’s a profession you’d never want to push your kids into as you know the ups and downs. It involves several problems… It’s unsafe, we’re told no 9 times out of 10, and it leads to a battle between ego and humility. You have to know how to assert yourself and keep your feet on the ground. As parents, we don’t tell our children, “Become an actor!” My daughter (Zoélie Lampron-Fournier)The 18-year-old accompanied me when I was six to an audition for a school assignment: she had to describe what her father does. She got the part but not me! She was playing with another dad!

And more roles followed…
Yes, she played along unit 9. She stopped for a while, but this year she will give in Untenable. I’m not saying she’ll make a career of it, but she has a lot of ease. If it’s his choice, I’ll support him as much as I can. It has happened to him to turn down offers and I thought that was perfect! She doesn’t feel obligated to say yes to everything. She studies languages ​​and speaks several. Her father changed jobs ten times in his life, so she can do the same if she wants.

And your son at his side?
My boy is an athlete: he needs to move. The job fascinates him. He played a few small roles and appeared in a commercial bye from two years ago. Since then he has been teasing me by telling me that he is a much bigger star than I am since we saw him on the bye! (laughs) He is 14 years old. He enjoys his high school life and spending time with his friends. For her part, my friend will be giving yoga classes for the hearing impaired at MAtv. She was a director before she changed the universe. She opened her yoga studio in Longueuil, Le Yoga du Coin. She organizes yoga retreats all over the world.

pedal boat runs at the Théâtre des Grands Chênes in Kingsey Falls until August 28th.
The perfect moments will return to TVA in the fall.
Marc will also star in Season 2 of the comedy

Spokesperson for the MS Mountain Bike Challenge

You are also a second year speaker on this cause. Why this commitment?
We raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, an organization that funds research and programs to help people with MS and those living with MS. Every situation has its share of challenges. Our healthcare system needs these caregivers. There is nothing better than knowing the loved ones how to deal with the sufferer’s illness. They need help, training, listening. These events also aim to raise awareness of the disease, which is insidious because it develops during crises and doesn’t affect people in the same way.

are you hit hard
Yes. I wouldn’t have wanted to be the spokesperson for something I have nothing to do with. My wife’s sister has been suffering from the disease for several years. I know how this diagnosis affected the lives of all his loved ones. It is at a very advanced stage. Unfortunately there is no going back… So it’s something that touches me a lot. Since I was associated with this event, several people close to me have told me that they are affected. On the other hand, this year because I crashed my bike and hurt myself, I’ll be on the field but I won’t be able to complete the challenge. It will allow me to tell people to respect their boundaries… (smile)

Are you an athlete by nature?
Yes, I have always played sports. I played soccer in high school and CEGEP. I won a bol d’or in CEGEP. I would have liked to have continued while I was in college, but I didn’t have the size to do it. I’ve always done martial arts, jogging, climbing, sports that require a bit of adrenaline. But right now I’m doing physio because of my injury.
