The first time I met French actor Mathieu Almaric was on the set of Quantum of Solace in Bregenz, Austria in April-May 2008 where I was working as an extra. A very nice and friendly person in real life.

About Mathieu Amalric:
One of France’s leading screen stars, best known to cinema audiences for his role as the French information broker, Louis, in Steven Spielberg’s MUNICH. He was awarded France’s César Award for Best Actor for his role in the internationally acclaimed comedy KINGS AND QUEEN, directed by Arnaud Desplechin. Previously, Amalric won the César for Most Promising Actor for his role in Desplechin’s MY SEX LIFE.

Amalric began his career as an actor in 1984, appearing in Otar Losseliani’s LES FAVORIS DE LA LUNE, and went on to serve as an assistant director to Louis Malle on AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS. As an actor, he has since worked with such leading directors as André Téchiné, Olivier Assayas, Jean-Claude Biette and the Larrieu Brothers. His latest films include Desplechin’s UN CONTE DE NOEL, Claude Miller’s UN SECRET, Nicolas Klotz’s HEART BEAT DETECTOR, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s ACTRICES and Vincent Dieutre’s FRAGMENTS SUR LE GRACE. He also appeared in Sofia Coppola’s MARIE ANTOINETTE. Amalric has written and directed a number of films including WIMBLEDON STAGE and, most recently, the documentary short LET THEM GROW UP HERE.

Amalric received rave reviews for his portrayal of Jean-Dominique Bauby in the Oscar nominated THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY.
