Louise Bourgoin

  1. Pauline Lèferve. Voir la mer, France, 2010.       “The idea was not to replace one Canal Plus Weather Girl with another,” insisted auteur Patrice Leconte. It just happened that way as Louise was otherwise engaged since her stunning debut, La fille de Monaco, 2007, Pauline was her TV successor, never her equal.
  2. Marion Cotillard, Allied, 2016.       Spies in love. During WWII. Sounds better than it turned out. On the suggestion list for Brad Pitt’s lover, were the top French loveliess. Cotillard’s usual deputy, Bérénice Bejo, Adèle Exarchopoulos (too young fort Brad), Tarantino favourite Mélanie Laurent, Léa Seydoux, Mélanie Thierry. And three ex-Canal Plus TV weather girls, actresses all, performing sketches, jokes, japes, before the weather forecast and winning films galore as a result: Bourgoin (16 movies in seven years including Luc Besson’s Les adventures extrtaopedionaries de Adèle Blanc-Sec), Canadian Charlotte Le Bon 16 films in nine), Pauline Lefèvre and, the most talented, Doria Tellier… she wrote her own film, Monsieur et Madame Adelmann, 2016.
