Host Bios

Since her debut in 1997, she has won the hearts of millions of viewers with her sense of humor, her humanity and self-deprecation. Whether she is interviewing an international star or an ordinary person, Isabelle still remains the same: a host that likes to make people shine, an interviewer that likes to listen and a human being that wants to learn.

She started out as a researcher in 1997 at MusiquePlus (Quebec’s MTV) and quickly moved up in front of the camera. Between 1999 and 2006, she travelled the globe for the daily entertainment French magazine, FLASH (Quebec’s Entertainment Tonight-Access Hollywood) to interview all the biggest stars such as Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, John Travolta, Gérard Depardieu, Jeanne Moreau, Céline Dion, etc) and cover the international events like The Oscars, Festival de Cannes, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, The Grammy’s and The People’s Choice Awards, etc.)
