On the occasion of the broadcast of Mon Bébé on France 2, focus on Thaïs Alessandrin, Sandrine Kiberlain’s young on-screen partner.
Heroine of My Baby, Thaïs Alessandrin, born in 1998, is the granddaughter of Marie Laforêt and daughter of directors Patrick Alessandrin (August 15) and Lisa Azuelos.
The young Thaïs grew up in an artistic environment and found herself naturally in front of the camera. She took her first steps as an actress in 2009 in LOL, Azuelos’ first feature film.
The story describes the relationship between a teenager and her mother, played by Sophie Marceau. Thaïs, aged about ten, plays Louise, Lola’s little sister (Christa Théret).
Thaïs and her mother then continue to tour together. The actress finds herself in the casting of Une Rencontre, a romantic comedy in which she plays the daughter of François Cluzet. The actor plays a married man falling under the spell of Sophie Marceau.
Asserting herself more and more in the profession of actress, Thaïs took theater lessons for six years during Simon and Florent classes: “The more I advanced, the more the actorship became essential, not as a matter of course, but as a pleasure. Playing makes me feel good!”
In 2017, after obtaining her BAC, she flew to Canada and continued her university studies in Montreal.
The artist continues his progression in short films of friends and in Interrail, directed by his sister Carmen Alessandrin. In 2019, she starred in two popular comedies, All Inclusive by Fabien Onteniente and My baby by Lisa Azuelos.
For the first time in her young career, she plays one of the main roles in a film. The work is freely inspired by its family history:
“It was normal, in any case logical, that I play Jade, that my mother invented in my image. Casually that tells our story, a priori no one could play this role better than me (laughs)”.
My Baby wins the Grand Prize at the Alpe d’Huez Festival and the Female Interpretation Prize for Sandrine Kiberlain. Pragmatic, Thaïs continued his graduate studies in Canada: “I know that becoming an actress who makes a living from her work is extremely rare”, she confides.
