Except that this appellation, Louise Bourgoin, does not exactly correspond to reality. Not if we believe his identity papers at all. Revealed on Canal+ as Miss Weather in the show Le Grand Journal almost fifteen years ago, the actress had decided to be called otherwise.
As Vanity Fair recalls, she was born in 1981 as Ariane and then a second time in 2006, as Louise for television. At the time, she was actually co-hosting Ariane Massenet on the show board and was afraid of being too much. That is why she adopted her second name, for the practical aspect, but also in tribute to the artist Louise Bourgeois.
“I’ve often wondered how I’ve been able to move from contemporary art to television, from TV to movies and the desire to realize today,” she explains. Louise Bourgoin distributes small drawings to her colleagues on the filming boards, and has even recently signed a collection of ceramics for the Pierre Frey House. Girls of teachers, Louise Bourgoin could never have guessed what life reserved for her.
It will soon be on the screen of the second season of Hippocrates, still on Canal+, a series that left her the freedom to create, as she so loves. The shooting of Hippocrates’ second season is over. The series will soon be broadcast on Canal+ and will put the Covid-19 pandemic at the heart of its intrigues.
