Biography

Brochu has spoken of her personal life being public, stating, "I’m not super-comfortable with it. I feel the less you project of yourself the more you can be believable as a character. I also think it’s just better for your own mental health. Then you can be a human being and change your mind and nobody asks you questions about it!"

Brochu stated in an interview from February 2015 that she is a feminist and that she struggled when portraying Aurora Luft, "There was a moment in Episode 2 when I was with [co-star Dustin Milligan], when I have to give him orders, I don’t want to do that, and he doesn’t want me to do that, and my first instinct, as a woman, was to smooth it out for him. The director was like, no, you’re a sergeant now. You have to give orders. You have authority. I'm a feminist, it’s 2015. But I’m still going a different way, delivering lines that are dictated by my gender. So that struggle that I was having, and I thought, Aurora would have been having it a million times more. So I could draw from reality, and reflect on my own personal reality, as well."

Despite sharing the same surname, she is not related to American actor and comedian Doug Brochu.

She dated Canadian actor Francois Arnaud but in a May 2014 interview she stated that they were no longer together.
She resides in Montreal, Quebec and lives part-time in Toronto, Ontario when filming Orphan Black.

The film cuts between two seemingly unrelated stories. One, set in present-day Montreal, stars Kevin Parent as Antoine, a successful club DJ torn between his new girlfriend Rose (Évelyne Brochu) and his still-complicated relationship with his ex-wife Carole (Hélène Florent); the other, set in 1960s Paris, stars Vanessa Paradis as Jacqueline, the fiercely protective single mother of Laurent (Marin Gerrier), a child with Down syndrome who has a crush on Véro (Alice Dubois), a friend and companion who also has Down syndrome. The film builds toward the revelation of how the two stories are linked: after Jacqueline, Laurent, and Véro are killed in a car accident, Carole, Antoine, and Rose are their subsequent reincarnations.
