Yesterday, François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell’s Turbo Kid made its Canadian premiere at the 2015 Fantasia Film Festival to its hometown audience. Prior to the screening, we had the enormous pleasure of chatting with the film’s female lead, Laurence Leboeuf, who plays the eccentric Apple in the film. Being from Montreal herself, Laboeuf was understandably excited about the film’s showing.
Kind and welcoming, Laboeuf couldn’t praise the filmmakers enough, which gives us the impression that Turbo Kid must have been a total blast to work on. She also sang high praises about the legendary Michael Ironside. But, one of the highlights of this interview might be Laboeuf’s confession to her Elfin aspirations.
