Actress Louisette Dussault has died at the age of 82

Actress Louisette Dussault, who left her mark on Quebecers with her role as The Green MouseHe died on Tuesday at the age of 82, the agency Ixion Communications said.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dearest Louisette Dussault. At 4 p.m. on March 14, this great lady of the theater passed away peacefully at the age of 82, surrounded by her daughters,” we announced in a press release.

Originally from Thetford Mines, Louisette Dussault entered the National Theater School of Canada in 1961. This marks the beginning of a great passion that will fuel a career that will span six decades.

Ms. Dussault thrived both in theater and on small and big screens, multiplying projects as an actress as well as a director or stage director.

Although many remember her role as La Souris Verte, which aired more than 750 episodes of this children’s show on Radio-Canada between 1964 and 1971, the fact remains that several generations have been able to admire her talent as the actress continued to appear in series until 2012-2013, with roles in Trauma and L’auberge du chien noir.

The actress has also devoted herself heavily to theater, forming no fewer than three companies. She was also one of the playwright Michel Tremblay’s great accomplices and was part of the very first reading of the play Les Belles-Sœurs and the play Demain matin, Montréal m’attend in 1968. She also reprized her role in Les Belles-sœurs in 1984 to mark the 15th anniversary of that iconic play.

In 1978, she caused controversy when she took on the role of the Virgin Mary in the play The Fairies Are Thirsty.

“Louisette had a fulfilling life of work. She was also very proud of her two daughters, Ève and Paule, and loved spending time with her seven grandchildren. Her charisma, her lively energy, her strong personality and her commitment to all artistic fields will be remembered by everyone who got to know her,” says the agency Ixion.
