Catherine St-Laurent’s new project: “I needed something different after District 31”

Next winter, on Télé-Québec, we can discover a new series called seem to go, in which we talk about the everyday life of young people with cystic fibrosis. The actress Catherine St-Laurent, unforgettable Noélie St-Hilaire in district 31There she finds a leading role alongside Antoine Olivier Pilon, Joakim Robillard and Noémie Leduc-Vaudry.

We will discover the touching and luminous story of four friends with cystic fibrosis who feel the need to live when they learn that one of them may die before summer is over. We will also learn that sick people are sometimes happier than healthy people. Jean-Christophe Réhel, poet and novelist, signs his first television series with this project. This first season is directed by Sarah Pellerin.

We recently had the pleasure of speaking with the actress, who tells us about this very different role for her: ” It was the perfect project, my dream project after District 31. I needed something different after 31. I also wanted us to see something funkier in a character like this; there aren’t thousands of them on Quebec TV. I was really lucky to come across this project. Also, playing with young people means changing districts. The energy was really different, we had the same humor, same references, it was a lighter atmosphere. »

She tells us more about her character: My character lives 100% on oxygen, so she carries an oxygen tank around with her. If only physically, it’s an acting challenge. […] He’s a character that has so much nuance, so much color that it was clear where we could go with this character. […] His time is limited, so he’s a character who’s always looking for adventure and thrills. She’s demanding in friendship because she can’t work or go to school, so she needs to be stimulated. Sometimes it gets intense, extreme. »

The cast also includes Marc Béland, Denis Bernard, Martin Drainville, Vincent Graton, Dominique Leduc, Anick Lemay, Sylvie Moreau, Iannicko N’Doua and others. Learn more about the series here.
