Budding star, Jules Houplain

Young French actor Jules Houplain started out in 2014, having acted on stage since he was just 12 and going on to work on series and films, including the award-winning Hidden Kisses, about the struggles of a gay teenager in the era of social media. He stars as the son of Juliette Binoche in the upcoming film Celle que vous Croyez and already has another film lined up for 2019 – all this and he’s not even 20 years old yet. We caught up with Jules between takes to find out what inspires him.

As an actor, is it important that your roles deal with societal issues?Yes. We need to open up ways of thinking and debate societal subjects. The world is changing. An actor should be representative and give a voice to those who don’t have one.

How do you approach a new role?I look for similarities with people that I know.

What are your criteria for choosing a new project?The character, the story and the director.

How do you nurture your creativity?I need to exercise, I read and I watch films – sometimes even several times in order to be able to really analyse them.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?Still in the same profession, I hope! And international projects, why not? That must be very rewarding.
