Benoit Mauffette began his theatrical education under the direction of Normand Chouinard in the production Vive la mariée! (Theatre des Tournesols). He traced his footsteps through various adventures such as Les Troyennes (Theatre Point d’Orgue), Walk the talk in Griffintown (with the Berlin collective Turbo Pascal), and Meinkopf, a solo show created in collaboration with Pierre-Yves Cardinal who won significant success at the Fringe Festival of 2010.
Benoit is also fluent in German and defends two characters in that language: Moritz in Tout ce qui tombe (Theatre d’Aujourd’hui, Theatre du Trident), and the Colonel in Cyclotron, a feature film by Olivier Asselin. He gives a memorable performance in One Flew Over a Cuckoo’s Nest at the Theatre du Rideau Vert, and toured during 3 years Je suis Mixte, an absurdist and intimate play with Yves Jacques, written and directed by Mathieu Quesnel. After that, we saw him in Solstice d'hiver in 2022 and on the Théâtre du Rideau Vert's stage with Un reel ben beau ben triste in 2023
On our small screen, Benoit defended the role of Eric in the popular series Tranches de vie on TVA. His most significant role was François in Les Simone, directed by Ricardo Trogi, a socially awkward and generous man who lives through a difficult breakup with the woman he admires, in addition to his apparitions in District 31, Unité 9, Malenfant and Les Invisibles. In 2021, Benoit makes a splashing return to the small screen in Drôles de Véronic on TVA, where he portrays multiple characters. He is a part of the cast of Deux par quatre, Lawrence Côté-Collins’s film. He also takes on the ambitious role of Philippe, a heartbroken man in Paris-Paris, a series filmed between Paris and Ontario released in 2022. He also joined the cast of STAT, playing the role of Christian Lévesque.
