New major challenge for Laura Smet. Johnny Hallyday’s daughter is about to make her big debut on the boards. The actress will be, from September 22, on the poster of a play by Stephen Simons, directed by Louis-Do de Lencquesaing and entitled “The principle of uncertainty”. David Hallyday’s half-sister will perform on stage alongside Jean-Pierre Darroussin in a drama that recounts the poignant and highly improbable encounter of two beings that nothing should bring closer. A show to discover from September 22, 2022 at the Montparnasse Theater.
If Laura Smet has already proven herself in front of the cameras of the greatest directors, she is trying her hand for the first time in this more dramatic register and with more solemn seams. But the companion of Raphaël Lancrey-Javal has already suffered a few boards when she was younger. But the result had been rather disappointing. “I took lessons when I was younger with Mélanie Thierry for that matter,” she confides to Version Fémina. “We were 17 and I found her incredibly gifted, charismatic. Me, I was stuck. I couldn’t skip scenes, despite my teacher Raymond Acquaviva’s insistence. I stayed in the background, watching the others, fascinated by what they managed to get out of them.“, she explains before specifying that”there was a complex“related to his father.
Freed from her paternal shackles, Laura Smet is therefore preparing to go on stage once and for all. And despite a newfound confidence, the actress needed some advice. In particular from Vanessa Paradis, who also recently took her first steps in the theater in a play written by her companion Samuel Benchetrit. “I was able to chat with Vanessa Paradis, of whom I have been a total fan since I was little. She started last season and was ultimately afraid of the same things I was. She reassured me a lot by trusting me that my stress would turn into positive energy.“ she indicates.
