In Forte, the comedy by Katia Lewkowicz, available on Amazon Prime Video, actress Melha Bedia plays a role more real than life. With a lot of humor and self-mockery, she is inspired by her own life and approaches, through her character, her relationship with boys and the one she maintains with her own body. Born from a simple idea, the film is an important step in the career of the actress. She co-created it and she plays her first major role in cinema there. For this occasion, the humorist wanted some of his relatives to participate, directly or indirectly, in the project. This is the case of his best friend: Adèle Exarchopoulos.
Melha Bedia: who is Forte’s revelation?
Winner of the Palme d’Or for La Vie d’Adèle – Chapter 1 and 2 by Abdellatif Kechiche, in 2013, the actress appeared for a short sequence in the skin of a cosmetic saleswoman somewhat overwhelmed by his client, played by Melha Bedia. This cameo is a real surprise for spectators, given the usual style of the actress, more used to the dramatic register than that of comedy.
In an interview, Melha Bedia explained that this appearance was a real “honor“.”It was out of the question that I make my first film without it being there for even two seconds“, she adds.
Very active on social networks, the two friends are accomplices and often together. For Melha Bedia, the actress was very supportive throughout the conception of the feature film: “She lived through all the writing of this film, all the stages, from funding to casting, to the choice of sets. It was normal that she was in it and she is the best actress of her generation.”
