Romane Portail grew up in a small town near Orleans, France. She and her family lived above the restaurant that her mother owned and operated. When she and her sisters were young girls they would think of the restaurant as their living room and walk around in their pajamas totally oblivious that the customers were strangers. It was completely natural to the girls to go down at night, dressed for bed and kiss their mother goodnight. She feels that that was an important learning phase in her acting persona; it made her comfortable to be in the midst of strangers. That was when she felt she got the acting buzz. She knew she was being observed by people and she began trying not to care about.
She also realized early on that she loved telling stories and pretending to be other characters, so as soon as she could, Romane signed up for acting classes and never looked back. Something else that drew her into acting was the need for a great deal of freedom. Even though professional actors have many challengers, emotional, physical and financial, Romane recognized one of the great benefits of an acting career was the lifestyle that only a few other types of careers offered. A professional actor has much more freedom than other people and acting also affords the opportunity to experience new things constantly and to explore new and totally different personalities from the inside out. She feels that every movie or play is a new adventure that she is grateful for.
She has been in countless plays, TV shows and movies and now, Romane is in one of the most anticipated web series that is due for release at the end of 2016. It’s called Urban Jungle, and she has the lead role. The series is smart, well written, beautifully directed and professionally produced. The basic story tenet of Urban Jungle is that all the animals on Earth have gone a little crazy, so to speak, and are attacking humans whether they are provoked or not. This causes a bit of concern in every one and Romane and her team are on the trail of the cause of this planetary catastrophe. We can’t wait to see it! The story and production values are excellent, along with the special effects, but we mainly want to see more of Romane
