Pierre-François Legendre proved himself a truly versatile actor by portraying both comedic and dramatic roles with ease and conviction. Born on May 14, 1974 in Québec, Canada, Pierre-François Legendre was bit by the acting bug in high school. After training at The Conservatory in Québec, Legendre played diverse characters in several stage productions, including comedy and drama. He moved to Montréal to pursue film and TV acting, beginning with small roles in the romantic comedy "Québec-Montréal" (2002) and on programs like "Les Bougon: C'est aussi ça la vie" (CBC, 2004-06). In 2005, Legendre co-starred in "Horloge biologique" as one of three thirty-something men grappling with the idea of impending fatherhood. He continued to make inroads in his native Canada with many TV and film projects, including appearances on the New Year's countdown and sketch comedy special "Bye-Bye" (Radio-Canada, 1968-2011) and a lead part on the critically acclaimed "Les invincibles" (Radio-Canada, 2005-09), a comedy-drama about a group of young men who sign a pact to break up with their respective relationships in an effort to live more carefree lives. In 2010, Legendre showcased his comedic chops in "Cabotins," followed by a compelling performance in the thriller "La peur de l'eau" ("Fear of Water") (2011), as a small-town detective who conducts his own murder investigation because he suspects that the police department is hiding evidence.
