During its mission, which spanned four television seasons and two films, the crew of the Romano Fafard encountered a panoply of extraterrestrial peoples. Which of them would the interpreter of Captain Patenaude like to meet in real life? “I really liked the Centeux, who were in the first film,” replies Guy Jodoin. They were very anxious people. It seems like I wanted to relax them, ask them what’s going on and why they are like that. »

Among the famous proverbs of Captain Patenaude, which one does actor Claude Legault prefer? “You have to take the bull by the horns… because by the tail, he doesn’t like that,” quotes, without hesitation, the man who also co-wrote the series with screenwriter Pierre-Yves Bernard. Earlier in the day, the duo was working on the third film. Next fall, he hopes to be able to submit the project in order to obtain the necessary financing. “We’re going to be far away in space, that’s for sure,” said the actor, who did not wish to divulge anything about the scenario.

Even if his friend Claude Legault refuses to give him details on the story of the next feature film, Réal Bossé is very eager to participate in it, because for him, In a galaxy near you is synonymous with a lot of happiness. What is his favorite joke from the adventure? “In the first film, I said: “Psychopop, psychopop lalala”. Then I punched Brad in the face to calm him down, because he had a leech in his face. I liked that. I loved hitting that man,” he says, laughing.

The pleasure was shared, one must believe, because when we ask Stéphane Crête, the interpreter of Brad Spitfire, his favorite stunt, he answers: all those scenes during which “he ate punches in the face”. “My stunts always involved eating punches,” he notes, however. “I’ve always been lucky, my friends are good actors. I never really had pain. »

Despite the mistreatment inflicted on Brad, it is still this character that Sylvie Moreau would have liked to play if she had not played Valence. For what ? “Because you can play the real villain.” It’s something I’ve had little opportunity to play in my life because of my friendly face, I suppose. (…) I would have liked to explore the complexity of a character who remains endearing even if he commits the worst horrors. »

She’s not the only one who prefers the scientist. The host of the documentary, comedian Matthieu Pepper, indicates that he is the most loved character, according to surveys carried out for In a galaxy near you: 25 years of mission. “Brad, for us to succeed in loving him, it’s genius of writing, genius of acting, because we’re not supposed to love him. He is hateful! But we love him deeply,” he analyzes.

The documentary, which promises to present production secrets in addition to the team’s best moments, allows the actors to delve into their memories. What does Mélanie Maynard miss from the time when she played Pétrolia? “What I miss the most is playing, because I don’t play anymore. (…) Finding my gang spirit in the morning, this brotherhood. »

When we ask Didier Lucien what his biggest laugh was during filming, he thinks for a long time. Then an image appears in his mind: that of Flavien (Claude Legault) in a speedo. “We are in a dangerous situation. I don’t remember why, he arrives in a speedo with a water polo helmet. (…) A guy in a speedo is always a shock,” he laughs.
