Free Souffriau is a Flemish actress and singer who made her solo album debut in 2009. As an actress, she is best-known for her lead role in the popular Studio 100 television series Mega Mindy. Born Fréderique Souffriau on February 8, 1980, in Ghent, Belgium, she began her performance career as a musical actress in the late '90s. At the turn of the century she began a fruitful career as a television actress in association with Studio 100. She appeared in a succession of television series and ultimately became famous for her lead role in the series Mega Mindy. Not only was the show a success; it spawned a full-length album featuring Souffriau as a vocalist in character. The album, Mega Mindy (2007), was a blockbuster success, reaching the Top Five of the albums charts in the Netherlands and Flanders. Moreover, it spawned a series of Top Ten singles ("Ik Ben Mega Mindy," "Mega Mindy Tijd," "Toby Toby"). A couple years later Souffriau made her solo debut as Free Souffriau with the album Zingt Ann Christy: Een Beetje Annders (2009), a tribute to Belgian songwriting legend Ann Christy released on Studio 100. The album was a number one smash hit in Flanders and includes the single "Dag Vreemde Man." Later in 2009 Souffriau made her return as Mega Mindy with the single "Tijd Voor Mega Mindy." ~ Jason Birchmeier
