A role at the antipodes of Candice Renoir
Cécile Bois is the program star Candice Renoir, a detective series also broadcast on France 2. The actress plays a mother of four children who must reconcile her family life and as a police commander. She is a rather extravagant woman unlike Caroline’s character in Consciousness examination.
Cécile Bois spoke about it with our colleagues from TV Z :
I appreciated that it was a character poles apart from Candice Renoir. Where Candice is extravagant, Caroline is extremely sober, discreet and, from speech to voice, remains in total restraint.
Caroline is a very measured character, calm and gentle. However, she soon finds herself overwhelmed by her old memories. Unfortunately, her lack of self-confidence forces her to undergo certain situations. Where Candice Renoir would have reacted quickly, Caroline is silent and retains her emotions.
