Cécile Bois: the most difficult for her on the set of “Candice Renoir”


Cécile Bois has played Candice Renoir on France 2 for ten years. On June 10, 2022, the channel broadcast the last episode of season 10 of the detective series and the faithful, like the actors, thought it was the end. from the program. In an interview granted to the magazine Nous deux and relayed by Pure People, Cécile Bois spoke of her immense pleasure in having embodied the character of Candice Renoir but also what had weighed on her the most during the filming.

“Candice is one of the richest characters I’ve had to play, it’s also the one I’ve played the longest,” said the actress. The latter had also told Télé Loisirs the emotion experienced during the last numbers of Candice Renoir: “When we shot this burst of episodes, we thought they would be the last. For the last shot together, we all cried. There was the whole artistic and technical team, all the extras. There were a lot of people behind the doors, behind the camera. It was extremely moving”.

But Cécile Bois recognizes in Nous Deux that these ten years have been trying: “What weighed me the most in the end was the pace of filming and the distance from my base, located 700 kilometers from Sète (where Candice Renoir’s investigations are taking place, NDRL)”. “I’m happy to have my freedom back,” said the actress, whose companion is also an actor. The couple have two daughters, aged 9 and 11.

Cécile Bois will therefore have to resume the path of filming on the roads of France.
