If they weren’t there, the life of the characters in the soap opera “Here it all begins” would be peaceful. They manipulate, conspire, blackmail. But what would the series be without them? Back to the five characters of the institute that we love to hate.
Broadcast since November 2, 2020 on TF1, the soap opera Here it all starts takes place within the Auguste Armand institute in which students are trained with the aim of becoming great starred chefs.
Since the first episode, many intrigues have upset the school. And it is often the same characters who are responsible for all the misfortunes of other students or teachers. Essential figures that we love to hate, and without whom the series would not be the same…
Emmanuel Teyssier (Benjamin Baroch), director of the Auguste Armand Institute, is far from being a teacher who listens to his students. From the beginning of the series, he tyrannizes Noémie (Lucia Passaniti) and then continues with other students like Jasmine (Zoï Severin) or Anais (Julie Sassoust). We should also remember that the pastry teacher is behind the suicide of Amandine Delprat (Geraldine Riviere), central to one of the series’ early storylines. There shouldn’t be many students left who haven’t dealt with him…
If Teyssier can sometimes go too far, he was a real mentor for Maxime Delcourt (Clement Remiens) and helped him develop as a chef. Despite his cold and demanding temperament, he makes every effort to ensure that his students achieve excellence. And then what would be Here it all starts without the character’s scathing lines?
Louis Guinot (Fabian Wolfrom) is always out for revenge. It must be admitted that he experienced a few betrayals, such as that of Salomé Dekens (Aurelie Pons) and Maxime, who largely shaped the future of the character. Louis is driven by the urge to make others pay and will stop at nothing, even going so far as to try to get them kicked out of the institute or steal recipes to be the best. But can we really blame him?
Admittedly, he has a very stubborn and proud temperament, but we must admit that this character tends to lose those who are dear to him. The woman he loves, his father, his hospitalized mother, Louis is not really the luckiest in life. His real problem is that nothing can reason him when he wants to hurt others. If only he was less stubborn…
Tom (Tom Darmon) has been talked about a lot in a very short time. Upon his arrival, the influencer does not leave indifferent some of the girls of the institute. Attracted by Salomé, he kisses her while recording a video, but their relationship ends there. Then, he begins a relationship with Amber (Claire Romain) which does not last long. Because throughout this story, the heartbreaker forgot to tell them that he already had a girlfriend: Florence (Fanny Gilles).
It is very difficult to find excuses for Tom, especially after what he did to Hortense (Catherine Davydzenka) by posting his private videos on social networks. Admittedly, his harassment by an Internet user was painful, but he ended up reproducing this pattern with Hortense, knowing full well the repercussions that it was going to have… It will take time for the others to forgive him. And U.S. too.
Charlene (Pola Petrenko) takes a lot from his father. Vengeance, lies, harassment, she uses more than questionable means against her comrades. The young woman has already attacked other students at the institute, including Hortense and Celia (Rebecca Benhamour). Out of jealousy, she did not hesitate to create a fake escort profile for Hortense, ruining her reputation in the process. As for Célia, she harassed her with Marta (Sarah Fitri) to make him pay for his love story with his brother Theo (Khaled Alouach).
In short, the daughter of Emmanuel Teyssier has not always made the right choices. But all this surely also hides a great fragility, as we discovered when she became addicted to botox injections. If Charlène often seems sure of herself, the young woman is complexed and seeks “perfection”. The student is nowhere near as strong as she claims to be, which somehow makes her endearing. We therefore wish her to have more confidence in her in the future.
Like Tom, the arrival of Amber (Claire Romain) in the soap opera had the effect of a bomb. Her objective in joining the institute: to take revenge on Maxime whom she holds responsible for the harassment of her sister Jade (Lea Zerbib) when they were 15 years old. For her plan, she charms the apprentice cook and makes Salome jealous until their relationship is in jeopardy. After having slept with him, Ambre voluntarily broadcasts a compromising photo of her on social networks and blames Maxime.
It is very difficult to forgive Amber for having separated the leading couple from Here it all begins. But, apart from this intrigue, the young woman is a very good friend, especially for Célia.
Lately, the polyamorous has experienced a heavy sentimental disappointment. In a relationship with Solal (Benjamin Douba Paris) for a long time, Amber begins to have feelings for Tom, which does not please her boyfriend who does not appreciate it. Finally, she decides to separate from the two young men who do not really accept her way of life. We therefore wish him to find love.
find Here it all starts Monday to Friday at 6:30 p.m. on TF1 and on Salto.
