The French born actress admitted that it was years after she first auditioned for the series that she finally got a part in the show. Due to her difficulty with the English language she had initially auditioned for a guest role one that she unfortunately didnt end up getting.Thankfully three years later Jobert came in this time reading for the role of a main character and dazzled the producers.Sometimes when things dont happen and youre like Oh its a shame but its for a good reason she added.Unfortunately it wasnt all smooth sailing from then as when production begun for Death in Paradise the actress had been filming another series with a French company.

The producers on the French series didnt help me at all she admitted. They were furious Id gotten another job.This led to the heartbroken actress having to fight for the part claiming the production company tried really hard to stop her.I cried my god and with my agent we fought for two weeks and they were like We cant release her earlier its impossible. They could they just didnt want to.Fortunately in the end Jobert alongside her mother came up with a schedule that worked for both projects seeing her fly back and forth for a short time.Digital Spy has reached out to the BBC for further comment.
