Caroline Dhavernas Parents
Her father, Sébastien Dhavernas was born in Montreal, Quebec on the 19th of January 1950. He is an actor and has also done French-language voice-overdubbing. This contributed to him attaining some fame as the voice of Roger Rabbit in the French version of the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
He went to College Stanislas where he completed his classical studies. Sébastien also went to McGill University where he did a year in Sociology and went on to attend the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Montreal.
He urged the government of Canada in 1989 to pass the legislation requiring a majority of television programs dubbed in French in Quebec to be overdubbed in the Quebec province rather than in France. He was eventually described as being responsible for dubbing issues in Quebec’s Union des Artistes.
Her father played a role in the Quebec production of Les Miserables and served as the president of the Canadian Artists and Producers Professional Relation Tribunal (CAPPRT).
Her mother, Michèle Deslauriers was born on the 17th of January 1946 in Quebec, Canada. She is an actress and provides the voice announcing stops for the Montreal metro.
These announcements are primarily found in the MR-63 trains but when there is a service interruption or any other emergencies, special announcements are played and they are also voiced by Deslauriers.
Both her father and mother are still together as a couple and are grandparents. They definitely did provide a background for their daughters’ careers in acting and voice dubbing.
Caroline’s father Sébastien Dhavernas ran in the 2008 federal election for the Liberal Party of Canada in the Montreal riding of Outremont. He campaigned against cuts to arts funding which had been introduced by the conservative government of Stephen Harper.
His decision to run was made just days before the election. He eventually finished second against Thomas Mulcair – the future party leader. Sébastien was then appointed to a Liberal Party political commission headed by Serge Joyal.
In 2013, he ran in the Municipal election for Montreal city council as a candidate of Equipe Denis Coderre pour Montreal and lost narrowly to Sterling Downey of Projet Montreal.
He has written for the Huffington Post in the French language Quebec site.

It was later found out as reported by Hollywoodpq.com on July 14, 2016, that she was in a relationship with 34 years old television, film and theater actor and a Quebec dubber, Maxime Le Flaguais. She had hidden this relationship as no other social site could attest to this information until October 22, 2016, when Caroline shared news of herself and Maxime-her boyfriend attending Montreal Canadian game at the Bell center together.
They were last seen together at the premiere of Pays de Chloe Robichaud on November 15, 2016. Shortly after, there were speculations that they were not together anymore as she is reported to be single by whosdatedwho.com. It is still assumed that she is in a secret relationship with Maxime but not married to him.
