After suspending his social networks, the actor spoke in Paris Match to pay tribute to his deceased father.
Claude Brasseur died at the age of 84, on December 22. “The day his father was born,” Alexandre Brasseur told Paris Match. In his immense career, he won the Cesar for best actor in a supporting role in 1977 for An elephant that deceives enormously than the César for best actor for his role in The War of the Police. While many personalities paid tribute to his father, the star of Demain Nous Belongs had decided to suspend his social networks.
It is therefore not on Instagram, that he wanted to pay tribute to him. The funeral of the comedian took place at the Saint-Roch church in Paris on December 29, before he was buried with his father, Pierre in the Père Lachaise cemetery. But before dying, the one who gave the answer to Sophie Marceau in the Boom was a victim three years ago of a stroke that weakened him. “When he saw his grandchildren, my children whom he loved so much, he rediscovered a little of this strength which he lacked to resume the path of the stages and the stage”.
But the relationship between father and son has not always been so simple. “My father had his flaws and he spoke little of them. Out of modesty, and because it had taken us a while to learn to speak to each other …”
Eventually, their understanding evolved. Alexandre Brasseur wanted to tell one of the last moments they shared together. “I think back to our last walk. We had walked through the Paris he loved, arm in arm, at his own pace. We sat down … boulevard Saint-Germain. We drank spritzes and watched the girls. We were good. It was a dream moment between a father and a son, a simple moment “.
