Actor

Brown-haired, square-faced leading man, at the forefront of the nouvelle vague movement of the 1960s, but perhaps just below the top rank of French stars of the era; nonetheless he was rarely off the screen for almost 60 years after his debut in Rene Clair's Les Grands Manoeuvres in 1955. More than 100 subsequent credits include Mitsou (1956), Vive Monsieur Blaireau (1957), Love and the Frenchwoman (1960), The Seven Deadly Sins (1962), Mata Hari, Agent H21 (1964), Is Paris Burning? (1966), The Bride Wore Black (1968), Stavisky... (1974), Le Crabe-Tambour (1977), The Police War (1979), Maria Chapdelaine (1983), Escalier C (1985), The Accompanist (1992), La Fille de D'Artagnan (1994), Captain Conan (1996), La Derriere (1999), Above the Clouds (2003), President (2006), Crime is Our Business (2008), All Together (2011) and Ladygrey (2015), his last.
