Marie Tifo

Marie Tifo (French pronunciation: ​; born September 26, 1949 in Jonquière, Quebec) is a Canadian actress, and a major star in French-speaking Canada. She won a Genie Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in the 1980 drama film Les Bons Débarras.

She starred in La Déraison d'amour at the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in Montreal from 2–13 June 2009.

Tifo played the beatified nun, Marie de l'Incarnation, in the play from a script written by filmmaker Jean-Daniel Lafond for his film Folle de Dieu (Madwoman of God). This theatrical biography of Marie Guyard, a widowed mother who crossed the Atlantic to found the Ursuline order of nuns, had premiered that past fall in Quebec City as part of the 400th anniversary celebrations, then toured France. Lafond's film, Folle de Dieu, also starred Tifo, and premiered in Quebec City in 2008.[1]

Tifo is married to actor and politician Pierre Curzi, now the Parti Québécois critic for culture, communications and language.
