Laurent Kérusoré controversy: The producer of “Plus belle la vie” gives her version of the facts

This is an interview that did not go unnoticed. In the latest issue of “Ici Paris” published on Wednesday, the actor of “Plus belle la vie” Laurent Kérusoré was very angry with the management of France Télévisions about the imminent end of the soap opera. Thomas’s interpreter notably targeted Stéphane Sitbon-Gomez, who is number two with public service boss Delphine Ernotte-Cunci, declaring: “She sent one of her right arms. We were fired by an enarque who, in two years, will work in a bank or at Orange. Fired by an enarque, I don’t understand…“. A few lines earlier, the 48-year-old actor had launched: “I thought that the public service was proud to have us… A priori not“.

“I immediately called Laurent”

A release that the Newen company, which produces “Plus belle la vie”, could not leave unanswered. Present within the team in Marseille since 2008 and co-producer for three months of this daily soap opera alongside Serge Ladron de Guevara, Claire de la Rochefoucauld reacts to puremedias.com the day after a telephone conversation in the form of explanations with Laurent Kérusoré. “I immediately called Laurent to get his version of the facts because I was quite surprised. Of course, I don’t agree with him at all.“, she says. And to remember: “Actors have always been free to express themselves as they see fit“.

Regarding the substance of the interview, Claire de la Rochefoucauld prefers to give the benefit of the doubt to her actor, present in the credits of the series since 2005. “He finds that the article in ‘Ici Paris’ has distorted his remarks and he really does not like the image it gives of him. He wants to finish the series in style and the article on the contrary sends back the image of someone embittered and hateful. For him, it’s not his state of mind and it doesn’t reflect at all the interview he had. Laurent is very affected. He feels like he’s been completely screwed“, she confides.

The producer of “Plus belle la vie” assures that her teams continue to work in harmony with those of France Télévisions: “Since the beginning and still now, we work hand in hand with France Télévisions. They decided to end the series. This is the life of the series. A series ends after a while. We had 18 happy years. Objectively, the ending is going extremely well, both artistically and socially.“. And Claire de la Rochefoucauld to mention the human resources representatives of France Télévisions and Newen present almost daily in the studios of the Belle de Mai to receive the technicians or even the artistic agent Tamara Martin-Laval hired to accompany the actors until December.

“They took advantage of an emotionally complicated moment for Laurent”

I don’t want the comments, distorted or not, of an actor to sow discord in an end to the series that is unfolding as well as possible.“, asserts the producer of the dean of French soap operas. “Laurent is an extremely sensitive person, who has given his all to the series for 18 years. He has not shot elsewhere than in ‘Plus belle la vie’. It was a choice on his part. And he also did plenty of other interviews where he never made such comments. They took advantage of an emotionally complicated moment for Laurent“, believes Claire de la Rochefoucauld to know about “Ici Paris”.

She assures him:If the actors denigrate France Télé, it is especially them that they put in danger because they have a career to pursue behind“. If an important page in the history of French fiction will be turned on November 18 with the broadcast of the last episode and the last bonus of “Plus belle la vie”, the producer wants to continue to move forward for her teams: “It’s not an end of life, it’s a change of life. We are going to make sure, like the end of the series, that it is as successful as possible“.
