on the occasion of the broadcast of this new season, Gwendoline Hamon entrusts us with the reasons for success of the series and its many other projects.
Already five seasons you embody Commissioner Cassandre. Have you seen the time pass?
Gwendoline Hamon: No, absolutely not! Five years ago, when we turned the pilot, I did not imagine that Cassandre would become a series. Each additional season has been a real surprise because there are many conditions to fulfill for a program to be renewed. But the series pleases a lot, moreover, season 4 and the first three seasons, rebroadcast at the first confinement, have carded and attracted a new audience ( in March 2020, Cassandre seduced more than 5 million viewers and beaten the Voice, NDLR ). We can only rejoice.

other ingredients ensure the success of this program, such as the spontaneity that emerges from the dialogs ...
I immediately understood the chance that I had to give me entrusting a role created especially for this new series: I I could model it at me, draw it progressively ... it was exciting, even if it had to follow the specifications of the series and stay in a form of realism, while keeping the idea of the family Polar.

She told me that the series often sounded just, especially at the level of the relations between the cops, and their propensity to make humor, even when the circumstances are dramatic. As with other difficult trades, it is a form of essential decompression valve.
Guests flock to Dutch cafe terraces as lockdown eases
UTRECHT, Netherlands (AP) — Lisa Gerritsen and Eva Diks were the first guests in six months to be served at Cafe Le Journal on The Neude square in the Dutch city of Utrecht on Wednesday. First in a long line waiting to be seated, they chose a table in the sun, ordered a bottle of rose wine and glasses of water and were planning to make a day of it. “We’ve waited so long.

Does you look a lot, this Florence Cassandre?
Since the time I embody it, I have breathed him from me, my humor, my energy, from my part ... Like her, I have a son (Gabriel, born from his union with Frédéric Diefenthal ), who lives alternately at home and his father. In fiction, there are many scenes with my son that I have already lived, like the one where he wants to learn to drive! I also tried to bring him a form of empathy. She must be "right", a rule that I'm trying to apply to myself every day.
So you are running for a season 6?
Yes, we are already shooting! I also played in the series such a long night (6 x 52 min), with Mathilde Seigner and Jean-Pierre Darroussin, who should arrive at the antenna soon. I have a second role and I like that. My grandmother (actress and director Nicole Anouilh) often said: "The actors always want" the roles of room ", the main roles in the theater, while there are so many fantastic secondary roles! It marked me. With a friend, I also write a fiction scenario, which we would like to submit to a broadcaster. And then, I need to give others, especially to the Association Imagyn, who sensitizes the gynecological cancers, whose mother has been victim, for lack of testing in time. I do not arise at all, and it's good, because I think that the day it will be the case, I will also bother others!
