Antoine Bertrand's layered performances, whether in comedic or dramatic roles, endeared him to audiences worldwide. Bertrand was born in 1977 in Granby, Quebec, Canada, an industrial city east of Montreal. He began his career on stage, appearing in "The Baker's Wife" (1999). Three years later, he studied theater at Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe in Quebec. Bertrand landed his breakthrough role on the comedy series "Les Bougon: C'est aussi ca la vie" (CBS, 2004-06), before he stretched his acting muscles as a cast member of "Camera café" (TVA, 2002- ) in 2006. Adapted from a French series of the same name, "Camera café" followed the daily happenings in an office as seen through a camera hidden in a coffee machine. That same year, Bertrand co-starred on the ensemble series "C.A." about four friends who meet every week to discuss their lives. Bertrand played Yannick, the slightly overweight single guy with a heart of gold. The year 2008 marked Bertrand's major foray into Canadian cinema with supporting roles in the erotic drama "Borderline" and the fantasy adventure "Babine," as well as a featured part in the drama "The Necessities of Life" ("Ce qu'il faut pour vivre"). In 2011, Bertrand received critical acclaim for his role in the comedy "Starbuck," about a 42-year-old sperm donor (Patrick Huard) who fathered 533 children. Cast as a paternity lawyer for the title character, Bertrand went on to earn a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the 2012 Genie Awards.
