Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge's career in five souvenir photos



In 1985, with the actor Serge Dupire (left) who played the young restaurateur from La Binerie in the film Le matou and its late director, Jean Beaudin. Surrounded by the best of our cinema, the then eight-year-old boy had discovered what he wanted to do in life. Almost 40 years later, Guillaume still loves his job.  

Monsieur Émile

This role in the film Le matou was to determine Guillaume's career. The boy had loved his filming experience and the public had been moved to tears by his acting, in the skin of this alcoholic child who roamed the streets with his cat. In 1986, he won the Young Artist of the Year award at the Métrostar gala. 

Historic moment

Ceremony organized by the Parti Québécois at the Center Pierre-Charbonneau in 1985. Thanks to the success of the film Le matou, the young Guillaume, enthusiastic and spontaneous, had paid tribute to René Lévesque who resigned from his position after 25 years of active politics. An honor the full extent of which he will realize much later and which he will attribute to his luck.
