Biography

François Cluzet possessed a gift of versatility that made him equally skilled at both physical comedy and straight drama. The actor first made waves on several French television serials and memorable roles in dramas such as "Cocktail Molotov" (1980), "One Deadly Summer" (1983), and "Vive la sociale!" (1983). Cluzet showcased his dramatic prowess many times over throughout his career, playing emotionally tormented characters in acclaimed films like "Les aprentis" (1995), in "Late August, Early September" (1998), or "Je suis un assassin" (2004). A prolific actor who appeared in countless films and television series, Cluzet received critical praise for his role in "Tell No One" (2006), as a doctor trying to prove his innocence while he searches for his wife's killer. He continued to impress in his native France, before gaining international acclaim for his role in the award-winning dramedy "The Intouchables" (2011). Based on a true story, the film centered on an unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic millionaire and his rambunctious caregiver (Omar Sy), an ex-con from the projects. Audiences worldwide not only embraced the film's inspiring message and the actors' genuine connection both on and off the screen, but it also proved to be the perfect vehicle to showcase Cluzet's enviable talent, versatility and passion for his craft.
