In the main role we will find Laurent LafitteAbout whom the project was built. ” We both thought he looked incredibly similar to Bernard Tapie. We thought about it about the same time “Tristan Siguila told the magazine a conversation note with the actor,” I told him at that point that I wanted to work on a fantasy project dedicated to the legend, Bernard Tapie. And it turned out that it was also something he dreamed of doing! So we hit each other in the hand. We kept in mind this desire to work together again. The “Little Tissue” star will not only lend his features to Tappy, but participate in “the building of the series” and the creative process that accompanies it from the start as a true partner.
