MISE & Agrave; DAY
After an online vote of a few weeks, Quebecers blindly chose the voice of Caroline Dhavernas to be that of the Metropolitan Express Network (REM).
A happy coincidence, the actress seems to follow in the footsteps of her mother, Michèle Deslauriers, who has been the voice of the Montreal metro since 2003.
No less than 40% of the respondents to the poll to elect the new voice of the metro set their sights on the actress, known in particular for her roles in the American series Hannibal or for her appearances in the first version of Beaux Malaises , detailed CDPQ Infra, the manager of the REM project.
“I can't believe it. The coincidence is simply incredible “exclaimed Ms. Dhavernas on Thursday in an interview with Ève-Marie Lortie on the show Salut Bonjour .
The EMN's new voice ensured that it took its role seriously. “At the hearing I tried to be warm, inviting, clear; I think those are the three words I keep in mind. […] Often, it is early in the morning that we hear that voice, so I hope that people can gently open their day with my voice, ”Caroline Dhavernas had fun.
More than 35,000 people have spoken out to choose the voice that will accompany users on their journeys.
“We know that public transport is the way of the future, but it is rare that we have the impression of moving forward clearly towards the future ”, underlined the actress, in a video accompanying the announcement.
