Zita Hanrot Plays Elsa

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “The Secret Plan” [Series Premiere]

The bi-racial Elsa is a bit hard to describe at times. There is this desire to describe her as a nerd, and yet she doesn’t fit into most of those boxes. Also, there you may want to call her shy, but she comes off quite social. So, to say the least, Elsa definitely is someone who can come off a bit eccentric – yet still approachable. However, when it comes to love, you begin to see why shy and nerd come into play. If only because she has the awkwardness of a nerd and appears shy in the form of still being stuck on her ex, for two years, and not really putting herself out there.

Yet, that all changes after Charlotte makes a move.

Other Noteworthy Facts

  1. Elsa turns 30 in the first season.
  2. Elsa has a sister who her mom favored to the point she doesn’t know if her mother loves her (Noted in Season 1/ Episode 4)

Sabrina Ouazani Plays Charlotte

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “The Secret Plan” [Series Premiere]

Charlotte is what could be seen as a free spirit. Though certainly not promiscuous, she does take a more liberal approach to sex than her friends Elsa and Emilie. Hence her not seeing a problem with buying a hooker, Jules, for Elsa. Just to keep her vagina from closing up.

Marc Ruchmann Plays Jules

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “The Secret Plan” [Series Premiere]

All we know in episode 1 is Jules is a top dollar sex worker. Someone who claims to be a preschool teacher, but who knows if that is just a backstory Charlotte gave him.

Other Noteworthy Facts

  • Jules’ real name is Julio, he is 31 (born 9/24/1987), he’s 6 foot, 12.5 stone and he became a gigolo to help his mom. He got paid 160 euro an hour, worked two hours a day, and has been doing this work for 4 years. His clients ranged from 23 to 72 and there have been 573. (Noted in Season 1/ Episode 7)

Josephine Drai Plays Emilie (Milou)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “The Secret Plan” [Series Premiere]

Pregnant, happily with the child’s father, one could argue that Emilie seems to have her life together. She even seems to be a manager, or owner, of a construction company. If not a designer or architecture firm. Yet, despite having her life together, don’t think she is high and mighty. If anything, Emilie comes off as someone who has lived life, made mistakes, still enjoys having a moderate bit of fun, but is adapting what that means per her situation.

Other Noteworthy Facts

  1. Emilie comes from a rich, and conservative, family.

Guillaume Labbe Plays Max

Max (Guillaume Labbe)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “The Secret Plan” [Series Premiere]

Elsa’s ex Max seems like an okay guy. Nothing about him, in the first episode anyway, makes him seem like an utter jerk. It is just her and Elsa, for one reason or another, ultimately didn’t work out.

Syrus Shahidi Plays Antoine

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 2 “The Sloppy Plan”

Antoine is Emilie’s boyfriend who she is pregnant by and lives with. He has a job in the medical field and is the sole reason his sister, Charlotte, isn’t currently homeless. Also, it should be noted he has a rather close relationship to his sister and also with his co-worker Manon. Both perhaps a bit too close.

Karina Testa Plays Manon

Manon (Karina Testa)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 2 “The Sloppy Plan”

She is Antoine’s co-worker and based off how she is introduced, and Antoine secretly texting her, you’d be led to believe she might be Antoine’s side piece.

Elsa’s accomplished sister who is often traveling and despite the favoritism their mom shows, it’s clear she cares for her little sister deeply. She even gave her the nickname “Dumpling.” Something which might be a possible dig.

About Amari Sali 3433 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
