Biography

This darkly handsome leading man has been as comfortable starring in Italian productions as in those of his native France. Jacques Perrin made his screen debut in 1957 in ""La Peau de l'ours" and starred on the Paris stage in "L'Annee du bac" for more than 400 performances. Perrin was seen in this play by Italian director Valerio Zurlini and won the role of the adolescent brother in love with Claudia Cardinale in "Girl With a Suitcase" (1960), which was to become the first of numerous Italian films Perrin would make. He was cited as Best Actor at the 1966 Venice Film Festival for his roles in Vittorio De Seta's "Almost a Man" and in the Spanish production "The Search". While his acting output has made him popular on the European continent, Perrin has appeared in films that have not always played in worldwide release. An exception was "Cinema Paradiso" (1989), in which he was the adult Toto, the young lad who forged a relationship with the aging projectionist. Perrin has continued to appear in films into the 90s, notably "Flight of the Innocent" (1992) and "Swallows Never Die in Jerusalem" (1994).
