Every now and then, our editorial team engages in meetings with personalities who embody the essence of WANT through their unique perspectives, visions of a better living, and overall sense of style. And since we think details make the whole difference, here is a questionnaire about the little (and big) things in life, inspired by writer Marcel Proust.

For this month's feature, WANT had the pleasure of meeting with Catherine St-laurent, a talented actress based in Montreal, known for her roles in the movie Tu dors Nicole - for which she won Best supporting actress award at Prix Jutra and the Canadian Screen Awards - and the TV shows District 31 and L’Air d’aller. This fashion lover, deeply dedicated to her craft, nurtures her sense of wonder through art, culinary explorations, cherished relationships, and travel discoveries.

indescribable feeling of being transported or transformed by a movie.

If I had a superpower, it would be : Being able to travel without hurting the planet.

The piece advice that stayedwith me : Listen to yourself.

The place where I could see myself live in : New York. I’d move there tomorrow morning. It’s a dynamic city where I feel that I can be completely myself. I always feel at home there.

My dream destination : Right now, I dream to go back to Copenhague. I think about it everyday.

my soul and for which I always felt a lot of empathy.
