New TV movie event this Monday, September 5, 2022 on TF1. In “Champion”, Kendji Girac makes his debut as an actor alongside the star of “Here it all begins” Aurélie Pons. The young woman, however, began her career as a model, before becoming an actress. And she doesn’t only have good memories.

Aurélie Pons has undoubtedly become one of the new faces of TF1. In the casting of the series “Here everything begins”, she participated in “Dancing with the Stars” in 2021, and was eliminated at the gates of the final. But before all that, the young woman had participated in a very different adventure: that of Miss France. Elected Miss Provence in 2018, she finally gave up her title and the competition, for several reasons.

She did not want to participate in Miss France 2019

Barely a month after her coronation, Aurélie Pons has indeed decided to return her scarf and not to go further in the competition for love. “Miss France is a path that requires you to do it alone,” she explained on her Instagram account. “But me, my life today, it is two. In the meantime, on my way, I met Carlos and my life took on another dimension. He is a model, too, but above all he has a great treasure deep down inside. And that is precious and rare. We will continue working and modeling together. In Paris, in Barcelona, ​​in Asia. We will continue to travel, to meet people and smiles, to enriched with the beauty of the world and its diversity.”

Very in love, the young woman preferred to give up to embark on a more fulfilling adventure according to her: “I chose love. A healthy and great love, because it is true. And I know deep down inside me that it will lead me just as well to my ends, but simply by another path than that of Miss France.”

love and comedy

However, the love she felt (and still does) for Carlos Romero is not the only thing that pushed her to change course. In an interview with Télé 7 Jours, she confided that, in love or not, she was no longer so sure of wanting to participate in the Miss France competition. “On paper, it’s not wrong, but to be honest, even if I had been alone, I would have chosen the path of comedy. My childhood dream was not to be Miss, but an actress .”

A complicated path, however, since on the occasion of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, the young woman told us that she had almost given up her acting career before being cast in “Here everything begins”: “I am from nothing at all, I landed from my deep countryside in Paris, and I started harassing agents telling them that I wanted to become an actress. I sent hundreds of emails until the one of them answers me, I did a lot of auditions… And at one point, I said to myself that I was going to have to move on, because it wasn’t working. where I was called to tell me that I had landed the role of Salomé. It was the culmination of a lot of perseverance, and I can only be grateful, especially with an atmosphere like the one on shooting.”

The modeling world was not for her

In the end, Aurélie Pons absolutely does not regret having moved away from the world of Misses and fashion shows: “The world of modeling really demolished me”, she admitted to us, before comparing this experience to that of the filming of the TF1 series. “Falling on a set like that, with such benevolence, so much mutual aid… It’s really a crazy experience, especially since it opened doors for me for projects that I can’t not speak yet.”

In the columns of Télé Star, she also said: “I don’t really want to talk about it anymore, because it didn’t represent anything in my life”, referring to her past as a model. A clear and definitive line on a career that he will not miss.
