Patricia Paquin’s Biography:
Patricia Paquin made her debut in the artistic world very early on. At six months of age, she was invited to her first audition for a diaper advertisement. She took part to her very first advertising at the age of four for Red Rose Tea. Throughout her adolescence, she appeared in more than 50 ads and, at 11 years old, she went to France to take part in a movie called: ‘‘Le Mystère de St-Chorlu’’, for TF1 and Radio-Canada.
During her high school years, she worked as a model for store flyers, such as: Zellers, The Bay, Eaton, etc.
Later on, she appeared on television as a youth program host: GymTonik, 0340, and Livraison Spéciale. Her role as Genevieve in the popular ‘‘Chambres en ville’’ sitcom, that aired between 1989 and 1996, helped her becoming a part of Quebec’s television landscape. In 1995, she hosted the Star Plus TV show on TVA, as well as the cultural show called: ‘‘Flash’’, on TQS, for eleven years.
Thereafter, she embarked on a radio show called: ‘‘Le bonheur est à quatre heures’’, with Sébastien Benoit, on Rythme FM.
But after six years of daily shows, she left in order to pursue new challenges. Thereafter, she did over 100 performances of a show called: ‘‘LES EX’’ all across the province of Quebec, with her ex-boyfriend, Mathieu Gratton, with whom she had a child in 2001: Benjamin. Her son suffers from an autism spectrum disorder and Patricia takes part to many events to raise awareness about such disorder, but also for resource and development purposes.
In parallel, she steered the ‘‘Moi&cie’’ women’s magazine. As of 2015, she returned to the ROUGE radio station in order to host the show called: ‘‘Patricia Paquin le weekend’’. In 2017, ROUGE asked her to host a brand new radio show: ‘‘Flash-Le Tapis Rouge’’.
2017 brought a new challenge consisting of becoming the spokesperson and partner of a new Quebec-owned skin care brand: ‘‘ELE by ELLE R COSMETIQUES’’. She was involved in every step, from the creation process all the way to marketing. Such project is among the most exciting ones she ever had.
Furthermore, Patricia won two Artis Awards and one Gémeaux Award for best cultural host.
