Epidemic obliges, the Comédie-Française, founded at the time of Louis XIV, lives a revolution. To replace the performances, readings of classics are broadcast on web TV. “We still have work, we are quite privileged. We are mobilized, even if we hope that it will be just a parenthesis”, describes the actor Benjamin Lavernhe, member for ten years and now a member of the institution.
The actor receives the cameras of France 2 in a very symbolic place, the home of the artists, “much too empty” right now, according to him. Benjamin Lavernhe is nominated for the third time at the Césars, for his role in the film Antoinette in the Cévennes. “It’s always a surprise, I was a bit sawed off. It’s good not to get used to it, I think”, he confides. His fate could have been different: Benjamin Lavernhe first studied journalism, but was already attracted to the enlightenment.
Benjamin Lavernhe will play, with the whole company of the Comédie-Française, in a play by Marivaux, Actors in good faith, broadcast on the Comédie-Française website, Saturday February 27 at 8:30 p.m.
