With her curls and her big questioning eyes, Bruno Sanches has this je-ne-sais-quoi of the face of cinema. Headliner of the series HPI alongside the sparkling Audrey Fleurot, the actor interprets the role of the nice cop, Gilles Vandraud. A character in his image, as told The Parisian who met him. This UFO of the small screen delivers with sincerity on his personal history, his doubts, his career and the accident that could have broken it.

After passing the first years of his life in Portugal where his family is from, Bruno Sanches returns to France, where his mother is a housekeeper and his father co-founder of the radio station of the Portuguese community in Ile-de-France Alfa Radio. Very early on, his parents detected in the little boy an innate talent for comedy.

Without taboo, the actor recounts this extraordinary journey, where he narrowly escaped the “melon“what some actors can take. “I took flabs and it calmed me down“. Further specifying that“in fact, we never arrived“. If he works hard, he escapes the worst as he still confides in the columns of the Parisian.
As a sophomore, he “breaks the neck during acrobatics“. A terrible accident that severs part of his spinal cord. If the prognosis is worrying, he no longer has any sensation below the neck, the young man clings to his chances of recovery, however small.
