You can read the full article (with a couple of quotes from Karine) in French below.
BEAUHARNOIS – Karine Vanasse vêtue d’un costume de latex et de crocs de vampire tentant de neutraliser des créatures mi-homme mi-cochon dingue: c’est le scénario saugrenu dans lequel nous plongera un épisode de l’émission Les gars des vues, de retour à Télé-Québec en janvier pour une deuxième saison.
Le concept restera le même: ce sont les Satiriques Pierre-Luc Gosselin et Nicholas Savard-L’Herbier, deux surdoués des effets spéciaux, qui sont derrière les 12 nouveaux épisodes de cette émission produite chez KOTV.
Hey guys, check out this interesting little Q&A with Karine that was posted on She Does The City last week where she shares some insight into working on the movie ‘All The Wrong Reasons’.
With an upcoming cameo in the X-Men flick, a recurring role on Revenge and a slew of film projects in the works – it’s safe to say Karine Vanasse is having a pretty great year! We recently got a chance to chat with the French Canadian actor about her career, and what it was like making All The Wrong Reasons, which comes out on DVD/iTunes on June 24th.
SDTC: What was your first job that felt like a “real break” and how did you get it?
KV: When I was offered my first lead role in a film. It was Lea Pool’s Emporte-moi (Set Me Free). I was thirteen and it was my first major audition! It was in that audition room that I felt for the first time what acting really was. I was such on an emotional high when I left.
SDTC: Do you have any advice for aspiring actresses? Or young women looking to make a creative dream of theirs a reality in a difficult field?
KV: Early on, learn to… well not compromise your initial dream. I think that it is easy to lose touch with the reasons for pursuing a career in a creative field. Keep reminding yourself why you wanted to do it the first place. Surround yourself with people who are aspiring to the same dream. You’ll inspire each other.
