In a press release, the agency stated, “It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dearest Louisette Dussault. On March 14th at 4 p.m., this great lady of the theater left us peacefully at the age of 82, surrounded by her daughters.”
Born in Thetford Mines, Louisette Dussault enrolled in the National Theater School of Canada in 1961, which marked the beginning of her illustrious career spanning six decades. She excelled not only in theater but also on both the small and big screens, where she appeared in numerous projects as an actress, director, and stage director.
Although many fans remember her role as The Green Mouse, which she played for more than 750 episodes of the children’s program presented on Radio-Canada from 1964 to 1971, several generations were able to admire her talent. The actress continued to appear in series until 2012-2013, with roles in Trauma and The Black Dog Inn.
Apart from her television and film work, Louisette Dussault was a celebrated theater personality. She founded three companies and was a close collaborator of playwright Michel Tremblay, who cast her in his plays The Sisters-in-Law and Tomorrow morning, Montreal is waiting for me. She also reprized her role in The Sisters-in-Law in 1984, marking the 15th anniversary of the cult piece.
In 1978, Louisette Dussault stirred controversy by taking on the role of the Virgin Mary in the play The Fairies are Thirsty.
“Louisette had a life filled with her work, which fulfilled her. She was also very proud of her two daughters, Ève and Paule, and loved spending time with her seven grandchildren. Her charisma, lively energy, strong personality, and involvement in all artistic spheres will remain in the memory of all those who had the chance to meet her,” said the Ixion agency in a statement.
The legacy of Louisette Dussault will remain etched in the hearts of Quebecers, who have lost a remarkable actress, director, and theater personality.
