It was very interesting to reunite with the character of Grace, because I felt like I wasn't completely done with her when she was killed off in the first movie.

I was very excited that James Cameron gave him the chance to return in this thrilling and moving story that will span five films!

You come back to life as Kiri, a young teenager raised by the hero couple.

Does it remain the same today?

He is very present.

Because that's what


is about  : our blindness to what surrounds us, to the value of life, nature and biodiversity!

For a long time, we did not realize the harm we do to our planet every day.

This is the main message of the film.

We see that the deterioration of the climate has accelerated since 2009. There is a real urgency now...

What memory do you keep?

I loved doing this series so much!

I would also very much like to work in France again.

I believe that the Americans are going to make a remake of the series but it will never match the original French version.

Are you going to appear in another series soon?
