Julie de Bona, the new TV show sensation

Julie De Bona

A far cry from popular TV series such as Joséphine or Plus Belle La Vie, TF1 is going full out with a new thriller that is right up there along with House of Cards or True Detective. Top of the billing: Julie de Bona, the fresh new actress who literally pierces the screen. Encounter.

a french tv show, as cool as our us favourite show

The new Tv show 'Le secret d’Elise' is an equation between 'The Hours' and 'Les Autres' : finally an American style production, super aesthetic with a scenario as cool as 'Engrenages', for example !

By my side, a really sexy team of actors: Bénabar, Stéphane Freiss, Hélène de Fougeroles.

The proof: when I showed the series to my buddies, mostly 30-year-old Parisians, hooked on House of Cards…they immediately adored it and wanted to watch the 2nd episode then and there. Not just to be polite, because I saw the “addict” light was on and blinking!!!

All the info on the series.

Starting on monday 08/02 at 8:55pm on TF1.

My darling seamstress

Julie de Bona stylist

To be stylish: I have my own little seamstress, Cécile from Pretty Cool. At least its customized creation, and Made In France!

Cécile suggest models that I like and that really bring out the best in me, we go together to buys fabric at the Halle Saint Pierre … I always wait for her pieces like a gift.

the beauty tip from mother to daughter

Healthy pressed juices

My mother, who is a true veggie, has insisted since several years that I drink freshly pressed juices and would almost force me to drink one as soon as I would set foot in her place.

The positive effects must have been convincing since I invested in a state-of-the-art juice extractor!

In case of a dull complexion or a hangover & Co: I put together a nice carrot-ginger curcuma juice + a clay mask… The damage is repaired! Guaranteed glowing effect.

Promotion, a second nature for actresses

Promotion is a trade in itself! Because once the comedian’s task is accomplished, you need to work on the image, hence the exchange with my publicist Matthieu de Bretizel

It’s really a second step in the trade and certain actors or actresses have a hard time doing it. For my part, I see it somewhat as a reward after the effort... It’s the game of glamour, of image after weeks of hard work and filming.

For example, I just worked with an exceptional photographer, Julien Vallon, to produce glossy photos to help my image with magazines.

There are many OFF moments, when not much is happening during a filming… andthat can last for hours. This is when everyone types away on their smartphones between scenes.

I love surfing on the blog of The Jalous Curator, a girl who posts really amazing inspirations.

Otherwise: I always put together a playlist in the image of the character I am acting out. For example, in Le Secret d’Elise, it begins on an uplifting tune (she is pregnant, in a very happy state of mind), then things become darker and darker.

If I had not been an actress, I would have been ...

Bio-physician! Really! And that’s what almost happened since I passed a scientific baccalaureate and two years of biochemistry before launching into theater. Genetics, metaphysical questioning, the exploration of humanity truly fascinate me. They are never very far from philosophical issues—a universe I adore.

I began wanting to get involved with theater and acting when I was 15-16 years old… But I am originally from Montpellier, my parents have nothing to do with the world of cinema. This is why it took me a while before saying to myself that I could make it my career! It seemed so very far from my life…
