Propelled into the spotlight with this role, Vanessa Demouy has yet experienced a complicated period. “I experienced my notoriety very badly, I was not prepared”, admitted the actress in the show Le Reflet du Miroir in September 2019 on YouTube. “It was a tsunami, I got lost, it was quite destructive… I was too young, not ready, not sufficiently surrounded by the people of the team, who, too, were a little overwhelmed by the Class Mannequin phenomenon. It was a very violent start, and very chaotic”, she continues facing Camron Lamart.
