L’Express talked with Clémence (in french) about The Tunnel 2 (here):
Divided between the big and the small screen. Sometimes in France, sometimes elsewhere. Between films, Clémence Poésy reprised his role of Elise, a tortured cop, in season 2 Tunnel on Canal + from Monday night. At 33, Clémence Poésy, daughter of actor and director of theater Étienne Guichard and a French teacher, has spent half her life on camera. Growing up, she soon discovered the reality of this precarious profession, but also saw from her father the fun as much as her mother.
Acting satisfies her urge to tell stories and to tell stories about her characters. This is also the moment she prefers, the one where she built step by step into a new role. Since 1999, she had time to embody some. And learned from each of them.
The telefilm Gunpowder, Treason and Plot, where she played Mary Stuart, proved that she had a place in this business. The saga Harry Potter has placed on the media world and allowed her to access to other roles. Jeanne Captive finally gave her the feeling of playing in a movie as someone important. In season 2 The Tunnel, Clémence Poésy shows her character Elise, a tortured cop this time “going through something brutal, to face someone she was and that she had forgotten.” She found mostly the actor who most taught her, Stephen Dillane. “It has changed my way of working. This is someone who questions many things. He does not share a scene if doesn’t have all the answers, if he did not understand at all the nuances. So he creates different layers of depth and reading, and it is amazing to see. “
