Biography

French film star Jacques Gamblin may be best known for his César-nominated performance in the family drama "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life" ("Le premier jour du reste de ta vie"), but his onscreen career began in 1984 when he starred in the TV movie adaptation of the comedic play "La double inconstance. " He appeared in only a handful of productions in the 1980s, but with the 1990s came a surge in his fame as he performed in a string of films, including the sex-fueled comedy "Pédale douce." For playing the supporting role of Adrien Lemoine in this farce set in France's gay community, Gamblin earned his first César nod in 1997. In 1999, the Cabourg Romantic Film Festival awarded Gamblin for his performance in the period piece/dramedy "Les enfants du Marais," in which he played Garriss, the lonely World War I veteran. Three years later, Gamblin won international acclaim, winning the Silver Berlin Bear award for Best Actor at the Berlin International Film Festival for his portrayal of Resistance activist Jean-Devaivre in the World War II-set biopic "Safe Conduct." By the time he earned his second César nomination for 2008's "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life," Gamblin had built a solid career and respected reputation, having appeared in 40 films, many of which earned acclaim.
