In 2018, the series A Wonderful Family was canceled after 15 seasons. If Anny Duperey agreed, it wasn’t her who made the difficult decision, but one of her partners.
“We had to stop”. In 2018, the series A Wonderful Family was canceled after fifteen seasons. Since 1992, the actors of the production of TF1 for 56 episodes have become indispensable faces for many viewers. And for Anny Duperey, Bernard Le Coq, Roméo Sarfati or even Cécile Caillaud, this series was very important. But in 2018, after some drama, everyone agreed to end Amazing Family. Director Joël Santoni died this year at the age of 74. “We had to stop, without Joël we couldn’t do it anymore. And most of all, it didn’t work every year because we had more time to put our little grain of salt in the scenarios. We had to stop” remembered on the set of Anny Duperey, who played Catherine BeaumontBy the way this Thursday, April 7th
But the actress could not make this decision. “I didn’t dare because I was almost superstitious that I was the one to destroy something so wonderful in our lives,” She said before explaining that it was Bernard Le Coq who put an end to a wonderful family: “In fact, he said to me, ‘It doesn’t matter, it’s me who makes the decision'”. If Anny Duperey didn’t dare, it’s because for her, more than anyone else, this series was fundamental. “It’s a miracle. I can’t believe this wonderful family is an accident. It’s a gift of life, of a job and maybe someone because it’s not possible.”she confided to the Canal + antenna, explaining that it was her during the casting “in a pretty serious emotional state” since she finished her book The Black Veil.
Anny Duperey: “It was necessary to start a fantasy family”
“It’s still extraordinary. After four movements with Joël Santoni, we both discover ourselves as orphans of fathers and mothers of the same age…explained the actress. We roll our eyes because we don’t know where they are, but we tell ourselves that they are very well organized. When she was 8 years old, the actress found her parents poisoned with carbon monoxide in the bathroom of their apartment. So she felt a bond with Joël Santoni from day one. “So that at least two of the creators, Joël Santoni and I, orphans of the same age, had to start a fantasy family as we would have liked to have it”, She added. Despite the end of the series, Anny Duperey keeps wonderful memories.
