Janine only opens her luggage to take summerdresses out and put walking shoes in. She trades a plane for a train, a train for a bicycle, a bicycle for a rowing boat … She knows train agents as well as her neighbours and airport halls as thourougly as her garden.
She travelled so much being a tropical biologist and an actress, that she feels home in the funniest places, even those without electricity or running water.
She has favourite cafés all over the world for coffee or white earl grey where she loves to write and to dream. Earth is her home.
In love with stories and keen to tell them, she yearns to act in movies all over th world, in many different langages. For the parts she acts, she is happy to take up challenges like singing, dancing, playing the piano, learning romanian, fighting and many more (just come up with them !).
She likes long walks in nature and going through towns. Jazz and opera, but mainly shootings on the other side of the globe where she can get with a rowboat or a bicycle, a bicycle or a train, a train or a plane… as long as she travels, everything’s good.
Janine trained at ‘Les Enfants Terribles’ in Paris, and with the prestigious European ACT (Actors Centre & RADA – London; Stadt Theater Mitte – Berlin; Comédie Française – Paris). Her career began on stage in Paris before getting hired in the french film FLA « semaine de la critique, Cannes 2014 » that opened a door to different film projects in France, Germany, Switzerland and England, mostly as a lead actress.
