Murders in the Jura : Sandrine Quétier was trained by a stuntman

Télé-Loisirs: Anna Buisson is the first main role that you play. Did you feel pressure?
Sandrine Quétier:
Obviously, there is pressure, but I had prepared my role quite well, I had rehearsed well and discussed it with the director beforehand. I didn’t take an internship at a police station, but I had training with a stuntman to get a good fall, boxing training, and I also learned how to handle a weapon.

She is a fairly strong female character, and far from clichés. How would you define it?
Anna is a bit of a broken character so she’s a bit tough, she was a bit broken in her childhood but also in her relationship with men. She has closed herself in her shell, but the varnish will crack little by little.

Murders in the Jura : A filming in the middle of a heatwave for Sandrine Quétier

Was there a scene that particularly struck you?
There was the scene on the dam which was complicated because we were filming in the middle of a heatwave, it was 43 degrees. It was quite impressive and physically demanding. We had rebuilt the parapet a meter from the edge of the dam, but I wasn’t sure. For the scenes at the gendarmerie, it was 42 degrees in the room and we couldn’t turn on the air conditioning during filming. There was also the fight scene in the rain which was not easy.

You mentioned the age pressure for animators but isn’t that something you also fear as an actress?
Not at all, because there are roles of mothers, grandmothers. I am aware that I don’t play young stars, but there are fabulous roles at all ages and more and more. For example, I would like to play a bad girl, a bitch (laughs). It would reveal something else about me as an actress.
