Kendji Girac becomes actor on TF1

According to The Parisian, Kendji Girac will soon take his first steps as an actor on the Tf1 channel which revealed him via The Voice in 2014. The 25-year-old singer will indeed soon start filming Champion, a TV movie directed by Mona Achache (The Gazelles, released in 2014). The interpreter of “Gypsy Color” Zack will play there, a young boxing enthusiast promised a bright future but plagued by a heavy secret that he tries to hide from everyone: his illiteracy.

Kendji Girac waited many years before accepting a role on television. “I’ve been using cameras for my music videos or for TV shows for a few years now., said in The Parisian the one who now also produces his clips (like the last one, “Conquer “). It took me a while to get comfortable with it all. It’s been a real job on me. “ The role of Zack, with which he has some points in common (he also had reading difficulties), therefore became obvious to him. This character touches him particularly. “When I was younger I could read, of course, but not fast enough to keep up with the lyrics on the telephones to the beat of the music when I was singing on TV shows. It was quite awkward for me., concedes the interpreter of “Andalouse”. Today, there are 7.5% of illiterate people in France, for whom letters mean nothing at all. Many are afraid to say it, hide and I would like, thanks to this film, to break the codes, to advance this cause and that it is no longer a taboo subject. “
