We met Jean-Philippe Perras at the premiere of the film Arlette, in which his wife Maripier Morin plays the leading role. Sitting in the front row as his lover prepared to interpret his role as Arlette underscores the effort she put into it. “Maripier did figure skating; it’s like an athlete. She works so hard! When she has a goal, she doesn’t give up. For her role she was expertly coached by Daniel Parent. They form a duo that understands each other and always pushes things forward. I saw how hard she worked to get this role,” he says proudly.
Although he is an actor himself, Jean-Philippe Perras says he does not give any advice. “We learn our lyrics together; she helps me and i do the same for her. But I have nothing to teach him. Daniel Parent taught us to be curious and to follow what the person in front of us suggested. Maripier offers me many things, and the goal is to have fun reviving.

The biggest role of his life
Although he has received some interesting characters over the years, Jean-Philippe is currently living the most beautiful role of his life, that of a father. “All cliché phrases come to mind to describe my fatherhood. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world. It opened the door to this immense love one can have that I didn’t know. It’s really a daily miracle, an extreme and deep happiness and joy,” he reveals happily. He also mentions Maripier’s work: ‘I’m lucky to have her as Margot’s mother. She is doing an exceptional job.”
In addition to his acting career, Jean-Philippe Perras is also a musician. With his group Gustafson he is preparing an album to be released in June 2023. “We should be in the studio but I got a part on a new series The emperor. And my partner (Adrien Bletton) expecting a second child. So we put the album on hold and use what we have. Still, the members of Gustafson envision a creative journey with their respective small families. “Usually we go away together for a week to make music, but with the kids we can’t do that anymore. So we’re wondering if we’re going to take her to do a residency somewhere.
► series The emperor will be available in Noovo in winter 2023.
