Charismatic actor and adored by Quebec's public, Sylvain Marcel's career path is particular and even unusual; one could easily say that "he did not have it easy". Self-taught but determined, his dream of becoming an actor never left his mind and, through patience and tenacity, he became what we know of him today. In his early twenties, Sylvain became the father of three children, raised them, worked as an orderly and, at the same time, acted in small roles in movies and on TV. Then, one day, "boom! He finally "reaps" what he has been sowing all these years. But, unfortunately, then came the "storm" of his serious problems with alcohol and drug addiction, which he will talk about with gentleness and humor to come to his final victory over this terrible disease and the return of "good weather"! During this conference, he addresses many general themes such as addiction, support, difficulties to overcome in life, perseverance, motivation, surpassing oneself, etc.
