A disappearance that he has difficulty in cashing. In October 2021, Kad Merad faced the death of his father, Mohamed Remy Mérad, who had been battling the disease for many years. Recently interviewed in Society magazine, the 58-year-old actor confided in his relationship with his father, “often severe”. “He was someone with whom we had a very hard relationship, even if he loved us very much”, he remembered before adding: “Me, I was the only one to manage to make him laugh before he hits, that saved me. Humor was my defence.
This Sunday, September 18, Kad Merad was the guest of Mohamed Bouhafsi on the airwaves of RTL in the program “Focus Sunday”. Julia Vignali’s companion was again questioned about this painful loss and he said he had trouble talking about him, the pain was still too present in his mind. “It’s too fresh for me to talk about my father… It’s hard… He left not long ago. I was asked for a program if I wanted to comment on the images of the Césars where I had invited my father. And I said, ‘No, I don’t want to see my dad right now. I don’t want to see him. I have a hard time talking about it.” he said not without emotion.
Guest of “50 ‘Inside” last September, the ex-accomplice of Olivier Baroux had mentioned a big regret, in particular that of not having been able to show the film “Honorary citizen” to his father. “I regretted that my father had not seen the film, since he left last year. It is a pain that I cannot erase”, he reacted.
