Valuing the difference with stars
A young Sherbrooke resident living with autism spectrum disorder has given himself the mission of valuing the difference by carrying out atypical interviews and he has succeeded in convincing several well-known personalities to help his cause.
Destabilizing its guests and making them experience emotions with out-of-the-ordinary questions is the goal of Mathieu Caron’s Atypical Interviews.
At only 23 years old, the young man who lives with the autism spectrum and Gilles de la Tourette syndrome lands interviews with big names in Quebec showbiz, politicians and athletes.
Mario Jean, Guylaine Tremblay, Guy Jodoin, Véronic Dicaire, he even got François Pérusse out of his studio.
“I tell myself that every day is an opportunity to meet well-known personalities, it’s really fun. I do this for a cause, to show that we are all different, that we are all a little atypical and that we are capable of having a great imagination.
TVA Nouvelles attended the filming of the atypical interview with poet and novelist David Goudreault on Friday.
“What Mathieu does is original, of high quality, we feel that he is getting ready and I wanted these slightly different things. I find that there is something beautiful in Mathieu’s approach and personality,” he said.
Asked who he would dream of being able to meet during his atypical interviews, Mathieu’s response was instantaneous: “Pierre Karl Péladeau! I love it!”. The invitation is launched… and Mathieu is patient!
