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 have set their sights on the actress, especially known for her roles in the American series Hannibal or for his appearances in the first version of Beautiful discomforts, detailed CDPQ Infra, the REM project manager.

“I do not believe it. The chance is simply incredible ”exclaimed Mme Dhavernas, Thursday, in interview with Ève-Marie Lortie on the show Hi hello.

The EMN’s new voice ensured that it took its role seriously. “At the audition, I tried to be warm, inviting, clear; I think these are the three words I keep in mind. […] Often, it’s early in the morning that we hear that voice, so I hope people can gently open their day with my voice, ”Caroline Dhavernas laughed.

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 clearly towards the future”, underlined the actress, in an accompanying video the announcement.
