The HPI series is making a comeback on TF1. The opportunity to discover everything you didn’t know about his incendiary actress, Audrey Fleurot, as talented and sincere… as crazy!
With her tawny hair and pearly skin, Audrey Fleurot, 44, has imposed her uniqueness on small and large screens. An actress now essential to French cinema, to the delight of the hit series HPI, which returns with a season 2. HPI for High Intellectual Potentiala particularity with which the character that Audrey embodies is endowed: in the skin of Morgane, a gifted cleaning lady, she conducts the investigation in an atypical way. Perfect in her role as an overwhelmed and uninhibited single mother, confronted with the rigidity of the methods of the Police, the actress seduces with her natural bagou. However, nothing predestined the young woman to become an actress.
Audrey Fleurot, only daughter of a firefighter father at La Comédie Française
Born in Mantes-la-Jolie in 1977, little Audrey leads a quiet life with her child care mother. A family that was not really artistic, as she herself admits, but that was without counting on a twist of fate, since her firefighter father worked at the Comédie Française. The little girl goes there often, and nourishes her passion for the performing arts there. “I was only child and they have always accompanied me in all my desires, whatever they may be“, she confides to She.
Audrey Fleurot, addicted to tango
As a child, Audrey tried all artistic activities, with a predilection for dance. “I went to circus school for three years, I took every possible dance class imaginable, classical, tap, modern jazz. And, at 14, I seriously started the theater“There is no question of stopping dancing for the young woman who has done well”hard to do nothing“, as she still confided to She. “As soon as I’m not playing, I’m going to dance, in Paris or elsewhere (…) The tango? This dance is addictive. As in the theatre, we look for the moment of grace, when you, your partner, the music become one.“
Audrey Fleurot, cut during editing by Woody Allen
2011 might not have been a good year for the actress. That year, the Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris, was released. Audrey Fleurot plays a few scenes there, which will ultimately not be kept in the final version. A half-hearted disappointment, since it was consecrated the same year with the success of the film Intouchables, by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, with Omar Sy and François Cluzet.
Audrey Fleurot, no question of taking the melon
True to herself, Audrey Fleurot has not lost her feet after the huge box office success ofUntouchables in 2011. The one who played the lady of the lake in the series Kaamelott, saw his career take off, but there was no question of taking the big head. “This doesn’t change my way of thinking at all: I always prefer a small role in a big movie, than a big role in a little movieshe specified in the columns of the magazine She. Success brings the freedom to choose.“
Audrey Fleurot: “As a teenager, I was very ugly”
If she embodies the fantasy of Omar Sy in Intouchables, Audrey is much less tender with her than her reflection in the mirror. As she confided to our colleagues at Gala: “As a teenager, I was very ugly. As I am myopic, I wore glasses with thick lenses (…), I had two braces, thirty kilos more.” Confidences without concession for the actress, who concludes: “When someone sends back a very rewarding image to me physically, I want to say: ‘But if you only knew how much of a scam I am!’, because in my head, I’m still that teenager there!”
Audrey Fleurot, a big baby-blues after the birth of her son Lou
In 2015, Audrey Fleurot welcomed Lou, her little boy, born of his love with the director Djibril Glissant, and taste the joys of motherhood.

(…) Nine months is the time it takes to get used to the idea, and since I didn’t have time to take advantage of it, I think it took the nine months that monitoring” After months of wandering, it is finally a hormonal rebalancing treatment that will allow him to regain the upper hand. “If I had been told earlier that it wasn’t my fault, it was a hormone hitthat I couldn’t do anything about it and that I had to take a treatment to reframe myself, I would have lost less time.”

We wanted it to work but there was no particular expectation from the public.” No particular expectation, but then in full confinement in the spring of 2021, the public is there. The audience successes are historic for the eight episodes of the first season. “We experienced a kind of alignment of the planets, continues the young woman. Afterwards, once I’ve told you that, I’m not hiding from you that we still have enormous pressure because we know we’re expected in season 2.“A second date that Audrey says to herself”very proud“.
