This Saturday, July 9, France 3 rebroadcasts two episodes of season 6 of Mongeville. A series where we find Gaëlle Bona, in the role of Captain Valentine Duteil. But who is the woman behind this character?
When the series began in 2013, it was with Marie Mouté who Francis Perrinalso known as Judge Mongeville, conducts its first surveys in Bordeaux. But from the second season, the actress is replaced by Gaelle Bonawhich then incarnates Captain Valentine Duteil. The lovely blonde will then lead Judge Mongeville by the nose and allow him to solve his investigations.
And if the series has been a huge success since then, it’s just as much thanks to the performances of Francis Perrin, who needs no introduction, as his talented on-screen partner. Behind the charming police captain is actually an actress who has had a long theater, film and television experience.
Gaëlle Bona, a peaceful mother
Gaelle Bona is born on 11 May 1980 on a sailboat off Brittany. She then grew up in the Paris region, where she attended the dance conservatory, but also where she passed the matriculation exam without conviction before eventually missing it. Hun da on the way to England to join a friend who had just set up a theater troupe. A first experience before you decide to dedicate 100% to this passion. She shot in especially under the leadership of Sofia Coppola Marie Antoinette or under Olivier Jahans in Sand castles. But it is especially on television that she stands out. Since 2007, she has appeared in more than twenty French productions. But it was ultimately thanks to Mongeville that her career took off, and her obvious on-screen complicity with Francis Perrin.
Mother of two children – a teenage girl and a young boy Gaëlle Bona decided to settle on an island in Brittany because she fell in love with the region just like her parents, who were originally from Cantal. A peaceful life, far from the tumult of Parisian life, surrounded by loved ones.
