Two new episodes of the series “Fugueuse” are offered tonight on TF1. The actress Romane Jolly is playing her first role here on the small screen. A sizeable challenge for the young woman who plays Léa, a 16-year-old teenager who blindly sinks into prostitution and violence.
Runaway : a strong role in a shock series
Romane Jolly plays Léa in the new TF1 series Runaway. A young teenage girl from 16 years old, no problem, who lives in a loving family. Unfortunately, she will experience a terrible descent into hell. She will fall under the influence of an older man who will lead her through the meanders of prostitution and violence. It was also a very hard experience for his parents, played by Michaël Youn and Sylvie Testud.
The young actress is therefore propelled into a difficult role which requires in particular scenes of violence and nude. Shocking fiction warns parents and teens alike against bad company and prostitution. A challenge for Romane Jolly who had some apprehensions all the same. She indulges in an interview for LCI :
Reading the script, I went through several phases. The point is so important that, of course, I wanted to defend a project like this one. Afterwards, I also asked myself the question of knowing if I was going to be able to take on scenes of nude and violence. I didn’t know if I could, since I had never done anything before.
A strong first role that the young woman knew how to interpret brilliantly. The nude scenes were shot with a small team to make her more comfortable. Romane Jolly also had the chance to be supported by experienced actors who knew how to support and advise her. The latter underlined its accuracy and its capacity for interpretation in the columns of The last hour :
It is surprising. In this series, she was able to be infantile as well as very mature. What is beautiful to see is that she has no plans before playing. She plays, that’s all.
Who is Romane Jolly?
Younger, the young woman plans to become a director and enrolls in a film school. In 2016, Romane Jolly won an assistant director’s license at the Free Conservatory of French Cinema in Paris. She began her audiovisual career by appearing in clips including that of singer Hoshi, Your striped sweater, in 2017. Subsequently, she was spotted by Jérôme Cornuau, the director of Runaway, to embody the young Léa.
One thing is certain, the young woman is not about to leave the small screen sinceshe will appear very soon in the series My angel, which was awarded at the La Rochelle Festival. Romane Jolly will play the daughter of Suzanne played by Muriel Robin who has disappeared.
