Héloïse Goy, with Alexis Patri
M6 is launching a new animated series in the world of Petit Nicolas. It is Flavie Flament who will lend her voice to the mother of the character invented by René Goscinny and Sempé. The TV host explains to the microphone of Europe 1 what she loved in this very first dubbing experience of her career.
More than 60 years after its creation by René Goscinny and Sempé, it is back. The mythical character of Petit Nicolas arrives on M6 in a brand new animated series. Original stories of the little hero and his friends were created for this cartoon which required the work of 150 collaborators over more than 24 months. And among the voices dubbing the characters, young viewers will find one very well known from television: that of Flavie Flament.
Le Petit Nicolas, “a safe bet”
The TV host will double the character of the mother of Little Nicolas. “Le Petit Nicolas marked my childhood and my pre-adolescence in a rather special way: I remember that I read them on my way to the municipal library and that The little Nicolas was resisting all the other books, newspapers and magazines”, she confides at the microphone of Europe 1. “He already had something timeless and it was a safe bet in my mind.”
This is the first time that Flavie Flament has lent herself to dubbing. “I loved this experience. It was something new that took me out of my comfort zone. It was like starting from scratch, and that’s also what makes doing things fun” , says the TV host. “Dubbing a character is absolutely brilliant, because it’s like doing comedy, without having to look and gesture. Everything goes through the voice. I was accompanied by a coach. Little Nicolas’s mother is a woman who is very modern, independent, determined. He is a character that I really liked.”
The new version of Petit Nicolas is broadcast on M6 from Monday and every day of the week at 7:20 am.
