Huguette disappeared without warning. The wife of Raymond (Gérard Hernandez), a retired ex-policeman, will be entitled to a tribute tonight in a special edition of the daily series Scenes of householdson M6, at 8:30 p.m. The channel will broadcast the most iconic sketches of the couple formed by Huguette and Raymond, but also sequences where we see the character of Huguette taking part in the competition for the Best Granny of France. “Marion, through Huguette, which she interpreted with talent, conquered the hearts of the French people”tweeted the boss of the M6 Group, Nicolas de Tavernost. “It is in the tenderness and affection of her family that she left to join the stars”says his daughter, Virginie Ledieu, also an actress.
The stars, Marion Game will have taken some time to reach them. In the ranking of the favorite TV actors and actresses of the French, carried out every year by the polling institute OpinionWay for TVMagazine, this popular actress in every sense of the word came in fourth place this year, behind three other television heavyweights: Audrey Fleurot, Mimie Mathy and Valérie Karsenti. A consecration for the one who, after fourteen seasons, still formed with Gérard Hernandez one of the most emblematic duos of the M6 soap opera, the only octogenarians in these short hilarious sketches telling the daily life of couples of different generations.
Born Madeleine-Jeanne-Hélène Game, July 31, 1938, in Casablanca (Morocco), Marion Game will have a long career in theater, television and cinema, long confined to comic supporting roles by her cheeky cheeks and her red hair. She was 9 years old when, after the death of her father, her paternal grandmother picked her up to raise her. Married and mother of a little girl, her passion for the dramatic art pushes her to go to Paris. Installed in the suburbs, the young woman does odd jobs (typist, secretary, etc.). “I was bored to death. All this depressed me completely”, she announced. After a depression, she ends up enrolling in the Simon course, and in 1968 wins the Marcel-Achard prize, which finally allows her to get out of the blues and the lot.
A bubbly personality, in theater and in movies
In 2021, in his memoirs What’s your name again? (The Archipelago, 2013), she recalled that she had, well before Huguette, put her sparkling personality at the service of other shows, both on the boards (with Paul Meurisse, Pierre Brasseur, Michel Roux) and on the screens, small and large, of “Au theater tonight” to films by Michel Audiard, Jean-Pierre Mocky, Jacques Demy. She took her first steps in the cinema in 1967 in The Ponies, alongside Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan, who play their own roles – already a couple story. Marion Game has also made her voice heard in the dubbing of numerous films and series, from Betty Rizzo in grease to Phyllis Van de Kamp in Desperate Housewives.
