Émilie Leclerc: The Beer Blogger
Alright, welcome to the interview with Émilie Leclerc. Émilie Leclerc is local to Montreal, Qc making her dreams a reality. She is not only a well-known actress but also a beer blogger. She gets to enjoy new beers daily and critiques them from social media.
Today we are testing out beers. So what is this beer?
So it’s a New England IPA.
It is quite good. Where can people purchase it?
For those who want to get it, it is available at the brewery in Burlington.
So let’s talk about your career as an actress. How did that get started?
Actually. When I was very young, I was a model. Since I am not very tall, when I entered the game as an adult, I was too short. I recycled myself as an actress. I went to a theatre school in 2010 and now living from my contracts.
How were you able to be on multiple television series?
They always hire people they know really well. As I was getting bigger parts, they were trusting me more. They gave me roles instantly as they knew me. However, eight years ago…not so much. Now people know me from specific roles. However, people know me more from social media from being the beer blogger.
What is the response from beer blogging?
People like Quebec beer a lot. On Instagram, I have great feedback. I focus on positivity.
Are you the only influencer that is blogging about beers?
Where does your desire for visibility come from?
At first, it was all for fun. Now, I use it as a tool for branding. I can get more roles due to my following. It also increases my confidence. I am very happy that I have a lot of visibility. I bring the confidence in my auditions. Beer saved me.
How do you deal with an overflow of messages when it comes to social media?
It’s crazy. I do have a lot to answer. From ten to noon, I start answering them.
You had a lot of roles for web series. How do you deal with famous people?
It’s not that big of a deal.
How do you get coached for voice acting (for English)?
It’s your tongue’s placement.
Cool. I didn’t know that.
Are you thinking about it when speaking?
Yes. It was different when I was in a television series.
Thank you so much for being on the show.
