SC: I’m from Lille a Metropolis at 200 km North from Paris. I went to high school in Belgium, and after graduating I moved to Montpellier in the south of France. Then I moved back to Paris to work as a model. I also lived in Montreal for a year before moving to Sydney, Australia where I study acting at NIDA and ACTT.
PL: Can you tell me a little bit about the film and television projects you’ve done?
SC: I've starred in the films "The Heart of a Mind", "To dear Mary ", "Triangulove",
"Nessa", "Curse of The Slender Man", "So, You Want to be a Gangster",
"What’s in the Case", "Lost Angels", "Hollywood Girls", and several others.
PL: Can you list some of the theatre projects you've participated in up until now?
SC: "Wild Honey", "Titus Andronicus", "The Marriage of Bette and Boo",
"The Comedy of Errors", "Been so Long", "The Pillowman ", "In Arabia We’d All Be Kings", and "Orpheus Descending".
PL: They are all very different, what made you choose to participate in these projects?
SC: The challenge, I love getting into very different and complicated characters.
I always try to push myself out of the comfort zone! I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work on some great projects with some very well-known directors like Milton Justice, Bruce Katzman, Nikki allen, Alex Kahuam and others
PL: You get approached all the time to work on projects with people, what makes you pick one role over another?
SC: The feeling and the connection I have with the character after the first read of the script. I just let my body respond to the relation with the character and the story; and of course the message the director wants to deliver through the story.
Having a good connection with the director helps me to choose if I want to work with them or not. Making a movie is all about team work, there needs to be good energy and a symbiotic relationship between every member of the team to make the final product worth watching.
PL: What has been your favorite role so far and why?
SC: My favorite roles have been the more challenging ones. For example, in the theater I would say Raymond Legendre (Been So Long). After the first reading I made the mistake of comparing myself to the character and I thought that he would be easy and fun to play. But I soon realized that he was much more complicated than my first perception so I had to completely change my perspective of the character and in the end I became fascinated by him. There were many intense moments between the character and I, something which made the experience extremely satisfying.
PL: As for genre, what is your favorite? (Comedy, Drama, Horror, etc.)
SC: My favorites genre would have to be drama and action.
For the drama, I've gone through a lot of events and emotional moment in my private life so I can easily relate to strong and emotional moments. I also love sharing and giving, for me the best way to do it is with drama.
I also love action movies, I’m a stunt man with 14 years of experience in martial arts and three years of experience with motorcycle acrobatics.
PL: What separates you from other actors?
SC: My look, the seduction and sex appeal of my French accent. I am fluent in French and English. I have 14 years of martial art experience and 3 years of stunt training with acrobatic tricks on motorcycles. When it comes down to it, I don’t care if I have to work 12 to 20 hours on set, I was born to do this.
PL: What would you say your strongest qualities as an actor are?
SC: I am a very understanding, honest, and respectful actor. I’m very confident and I have a strong personality, and I’m a hard worker who always asks questions to get a deeper understanding of the character.
