From this colorful personality, the actress Marilou Berry was immediately seduced by this profile. “I found the idea brilliant! When I was sent the scripts for the first episodes, I jumped on it. I loved this character,” she confided in the pages of Télé 7 Jours.
Through this single heroine, Marilou Berry details her characteristic traits. “Marianne Vauban has a rich life and does not see her celibacy or the fact of not being a mother as something sad or negative”, before adding. “She is a woman who loves life in everything that represents it: sex, food, laughter, culture…”, she assures our colleagues.
