It has a lot do to with my first experience as an actor for a popular series here in Quebec. Guillaume Lambert discovered me there and it’s because of him that I had an audition (first I ever did in my life) for this movie called Gerontophilia from Bruce Labruce. I ended up landing a leading role. Then, I shot with Gus Van Sant (who saw me in Gerontophilia) for British GQ. The stylist who was on that shoot works for Calvin Klein and sent images of me to his team. They liked me. It all started there!
