Philippe CaroitPhilippe Caroit

Born in Paris, he is the fourth of seven children. His teenage seventies left an everlasting love of people, travel and remote places. He thus decided to study medicine to join up with the wave of « French doctors ». Moving to Montpellier enabled him to explore his affinity with theatre at the Conservatoire, to continue his studies and at the same time enjoy the sun and sea. In his sixth year of medicine he gave up the double life of « actor come doctor » to join the Théâtre du Soleil with Ariane Mouchkine. His cinema career began with Eric Rohner and television with Jean Claude Brisseau. To date, he has played in more than 100 French and foreign films for cinema and television across the globe, including Italian, British, American, Australian and Cuban. He not only speaks English and Italian fluently, but German and Spanish too. He frequently goes back to theatre and in 2010 met Robert Hossein once again for « Seznec », more than 20 years after playing the role of « Jesus » at the Palais des Sports. He comes back at the theater of Paris in autumn 2013 to play "la Société des Loisirs", play that he has adapted. In 1999 he made his first short film, « Faire-part », with Christine Murillo, Antoine Duléry and Caroline Tresca, who is also mother of his daughter, Blanche. Although a dolce far niente enthusiast, he is actually very sporty. He also devotes spare time to painting and writing. His films include « Valentin Valentin », « Rhumba », « Liberty Belle », « R.I.S. », « Les bœufs-carottes »…

Stéfi Celma

Stéfi Celma is a young actress and singer born in Paris in 1986 of parents hailing from Martinique. Stefi’s love affair with music begins at a very early age. At 4 and a half years old, she takes part in the cult TV show, « L’école des Fans ». When host Jacques Martin asks her if she wants to become a singer or an actress, her answer is a definite « no ». Life will decide otherwise. Very early on, she enrols at the music academy, where she studies musical notation and the piano, takes dancing and singing lessons, and writes her first songs. In 2007, she is part of the « Sol en cirque » musical comedy, written by Zazie, and then « Je m’voyais déjà », a show written by Laurent Ruquier with the songs of Charles Aznavour. She is subsequently spotted by a casting director and joins an acting agency. From then on, acting becomes an important part of her life. She works a lot for TV: « Le frère que je n’ai pas eu », « Un flic : calibre caraïbe », «Trop jeune pour toi » and « La maison des Rocheville ». She was also cast in « Pas très normales activités »  by Maurice Barthélémy and « Les Profs » by Pierre-François Martin-Laval. This year, she played in two feature films, « Les Profs 2 » and « Antigang ». From October 13, she will be on TV in « Dix pour Cent », Cédric Klapisch’s eagerly awaited series for France 2. She combined her two passions for cinema and music in the comedy film « Case départ » by Fabrice Eboué and Thomas Ngijol, for which she co-wrote the original soundtrack. In « Dix pour Cent », her character sings and plays the guitar.
