Hélène Rollès (born 20 December 1966) is a French actress and singer, primarily known for her major role in the TV sitcom Helen and the boys (Hélène et les Garçons), alongside Sébastien Roch.

Life and career[edit]

In the 1990s, she played Hélène Girard, Justine’s old sister, in the sitcom Premiers Baisers. Due to the interest around the role character, Jean-Luc Azoulay decided to create a sitcom based on her character in 1992 and named it Hélène et les Garçons.

Hélène et les Garçons became an instant television success. This TV show which recounts love stories of a student band at the university, garnered up to 6,500,000 viewers every night.

The show has been adapted for foreign countries like the USA, Norway, Spain, Denmark, Greece , Sweden and Russia.

Rollès made her musical debut with Pour l'amour d'un garçon and Peut être qu'en septembre.

Her career peaked in 1993, when she published her most popular album, Je m'appelle Hélène, which sold 900,000 and went triple platinum. In February 1993, Rollès was nominated for a Victoires de la Musique. The same year the book Je m'appelle Hélène was published by editions Montjoie.

The director Morgan Delaunay has published a documentary on the net titled Hélène Rolles, une étoile pas comme les autres.[1]

She participated in a spin-off series of la Ferme Célébrités and Première Compagnie (reality show).

In February 2013 Rollès adopted two children, a brother and a sister, from Ethiopia.[2]
