Karine Gonthier-Hyndman Opens Up About How It Feels To Film With Her Ex


In 2023, Karine Gonthier-Hyndman will celebrate 15 years in business. A career that she developed slowly, but which, for several years, has provided her with a series of exciting projects. Despite this enviable career, the actress takes nothing for granted. The sense of urgency that inhabits him and his fear of running out of time —due to his profession, his passions, life— lead him to savor each moment with intensity.

Karine, the third season of that’s how i love you looks very promising…

Yes, but I haven’t read anything yet. This year, Patrice Robitaille and François Létourneau will produce the series. It will create a different atmosphere. I can’t wait to find them and see where it takes us. We tour every two years to give François time to write. It is a project that allows us to unfold as actors. We are very active, constantly on the move. Since the series is set in the 1970s, the packaging is different: hairstyle, makeup, wardrobe. I am lucky to be able to play Micheline Paquette, who is both violent and loving. The characters of the series begin to anchor themselves in the collective imagination. On Halloween, people send us pictures of themselves dressed up as the four characters. I tell myself we must have accomplished something.

tour with your ex between two sheets does it pose challenges?

No not at all. William (Girard) and I started this series when we were already separated. We approached her like a couple of friends. It’s absolutely not a slippery slope for us. We travel with good humor and the pleasure of working our ties in a different way, like two work colleagues, but above all like two friends. We had a lot of fun doing this project.

In 2023, we will also find you in the theater, if I’m not mistaken?

Yes I’ll be on tour with The novel of Monsieur de Molière. I will also be at the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier in the play the manufactureran adaptation of a work by Balzac, mercadet. This is the first time that she has worked with Alice Ronfard, an exceptional theater woman. I have always liked people who have a singular thought. I like the way he approaches work with an element of risk. The theater is the place of risk, and that’s something I find in Alice. The heat is not for me. Risk is part of our job.

Do you have models that inspire you with their daring?

The model that everyone knows all over the world is Madonna. I’m not a huge fan of her music, but the artist that she is inspires me. She kicked down all the doors and was always on the sidelines, refusing to submit to the rules. She paved the way with such a strong voice, not only for women, but also for gay people and many others. We can criticize her surgeries, but she deeply embodies who she wants to be. She is never disrespectful. She is a strong model. Since the beginning of her career, she has changed so many things…

It seems that he will celebrate his 15-year career in 2023.

Yes, I left school in 2008. I feel like I started working yesterday… The starts were late; I started working at the age of 30 and now I am 38. The years prior to the start of my career I continued working: I did theater, voice, dubbing, acting workshops, I trained, I jogged. I was preparing myself for the day when it would arrive…

Then your career literally exploded!

Yes, but I’m not one of the actors who head every project. My career progresses slowly. I have worked hard for eight years, but always gently. I’ve been in bands, not necessarily front and center, and I like that. I have a 15-year career, but I still have this passion, this inner fire. I want to stay alive and happy in my profession.

Initially, did you have specific dreams and, if so, did you carry them out?

I did more! Before I turned 30, I told myself that I might never make a living from my job. Being able to make a living from it, and even being recognized by my peers, is something unexpected. Our longings and longings grow as we unfold. So I have new needs, new desires, new ambitions. Sometimes I feel like saying to myself: “Okay! Enough, croquettes!”, but with the passage of time, the urgency is even greater.

Does this slower pace allow you to particularly appreciate everything that happens to you?

Yes, and I don’t take anything for granted. I fought so hard that every contract I get is like a blessing. The fear of not working more or of working less will always be present. The fear of not being up to the task and of not renewing myself as well. it’s part of me. It can even be a driving force in my work. On the other hand, I have moments of respite. When I know my year is full, it’s reassuring. My work is really my passion, I need it. I need to consume culture and make it.

Does reaching forty force you to look again at the passage of time?

Absolutely! The thing that scares me about getting old is that it doesn’t work anymore. Otherwise, I like getting old. I feel more balanced and calmer than before. I feel more at peace with my choices. A lot of things are bubbling up inside of me. I want to explore different things, but I’m afraid of running out of time. I’ve always been like this, even as a child. My mother told me that she didn’t want me to go to bed, that I always didn’t have time. I continued to feel this urge throughout my twenties and thirties: I find it hard to stop. I wish the days were longer. So what worries me is that time is running out. Will I have time to travel as I want? To meet the ones I want to meet? To do the projects I want to do?

Do you still live in the beautiful house that you renovated?

Yes, this is my haven of peace. I made myself a nest in which, rain or shine, well-being or discomfort, finding myself there calms me down. I feel good at home. I have many plants, I garden a lot. It’s one of the things that calms me down.

If not, what do you spend your free time on?

I watch movies, I go to the museum, I see my friends. I love shopping at the market, cooking. I am particularly epicurean. As much as I need to be home alone to recharge my batteries, I like to be surrounded, to invite my friends over. I had the opportunity to go to Greece last fall. It reminded me of how good it feels to change context, to open up to something else. Life is short. It makes me realize that I don’t have to bet everything on work and that I have to make time for myself. It’s part of my resolutions for the new year: take advantage of the calm moments to recharge batteries instead of stressing about not having a job…

The piece The novel of Monsieur de Molière is on tour from January 18 to February 9. tnm.qc.ca The room the manufacturer will be presented at the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier from January 25 to February 18.
