Montreal’s public transit systems are keeping things in the family.
Actress Caroline Dhavernas was announced to be the voice of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM) light-rail system on Thursday.
But she also happens to be the daughter of Michèle Deslauriers — the woman behind Montreal’s Metro announcements.
Dhavernas told Radio-Canada that she was excited to hear that she got the role, in part because of that family history.
“When I got the call for the audition, I thought, that would be so funny,” Dhavernas said.
“If I’m the voice of the REM, we could make our little public transit dynasty.
