Benjamin Castaldi: The morale of his father Jean-Pierre affected by two bad news!

In its history, Fort Boyard has known several animators in almost 30 years of existence. The first was named Patrice Laffont and the current one, Olivier Minne. The latter has been present since 2003 but before him, there was Jean-Pierre Castaldi.

Benjamin’s father had taken the reins of the game show, broadcast on France 2 for three seasons, from 2000 to 2002, with Cendrine Dominguez. Ex-candidate, the star was not very keen to occupy this position.

“I didn’t want to do it. First of all because compared to an acting career, it’s not necessarily ideal for making a comeback in the cinema. And then, it’s big machines, we do not realize. It’s quite a thing, it’s heavy to do “, he had revealed.

The actor will be convinced by the producer of the show, Marie-France Brière. “She said to me: ‘Jean-Pierre, you are adored by the kids’. I did Fort Boyard, it was a great experience.”

An experience that ended abruptly. “I was fired as a thug after two years. There, I was very sad, because I would have continued. And at the same time, they did me a favor when I left, because I kept a coefficient in relation to children, teenagers, incredible, because on the Internet, we were a hit “.

Subsequently, the 77-year-old took part in other television shows but as a participant. The First Company on TF1 in 2005, defending the colors of the Association Athina Ichtyose Monaco, then later in 2019 in Better late than never, broadcast on France 3.
