Created during the pandemic, The Working Actor educates and supports Actors by offering engaging and entertaining interviews with industry professionals who provide valuable insights into the business of acting. Already offered in English and Spanish, the new French version will target the francophone market.

Hosting the new French series will be Tina Maaalaoui. Tina is a Montreal native, who is fluent in French, English, Spanish, Arabic, and basic Greek. As an actress, she has appeared in the second season of the web series ‘I Would Like To-Be Erased’ and other popular series, such as ‘Manual de la Vie Sauvage and Virage’. She has also been cast in musicals ‘Hairspray’ and the ‘Sixties Follies’ to name a few.

The Working Actor’s first guest will be Montreal based Casting Director – Maxime Giroux. Maxime discovered the world of casting while working as an assistant at Powerhouse Casting in Toronto. After a short stint as a talent agent, he returned to Montreal, as an associate casting director at Elite Casting for more than 8 years before opening Maxime Giroux Casting in 2009. Since then, motivated by his passion for actors, he has participated in a multitude of productions in French and English ranging from feature films to advertising. In 2018, his excellent work was highlighted by a nomination for the Best Casting for the feature film Boost at the Gala Québec Cinéma. He has also received two nominations for the feature film Beans in 2021 at the Canadian Screen Awards and the other in 2022 at the Gala Québec Cinéma.

“I am pleased to welcome Tina to the Casting Workbook family, and I am always excited to introduce new talent to our members. My team and I loved Tina’s energy and her ease on camera. We are so happy she is collaborating with us for this new French version of The Working Actor!”

– Susan Fox, Founder and CEO, Casting Workbook

“As an actress, I have a thousand and one questions about the industry. I dreamed of a platform on which I could have my questions answered, in French, with professionals from the Québécois market. It’s therefore such an honour for me to host this new version of The Working Actor, entirely in French! I sincerely think that these interviews will be useful for all actors working in the francophone industry.”

– Tina Maalaoui, host of The Working Actor in French
