Frédéric Pierrot Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

One of the prime choices of French casting directors when filling distinguished, slightly offbeat roles, Gallic actor Frédéric Pierrot originally spent a year studying mathematics, but shifted focus and emphasis after moving to the United States and discovering a great love of cinematic spectacle. Upon returning to France, Pierrot promptly decided to establish himself as an actor and debuted onscreen in the 1986 short Manège by director [[Performer~P52915~Jacques Nolot~jacquesnolot]]. In the years that followed, he enjoyed his most prolific and successful collaborations via repeat projects with director [[Performer~P113717~Bertrand Tavernier~bertrandtavernier]], who favored the actor enormously and enlisted him on several occasions. Among their joint ventures were the 1996 [[Feature~V136818~Captain Conan~capitaineconan]] and the 2004 [[Feature~V318921~Holy Lola~holylola]]. Additional noteworthy projects that starred Pierrot included [[Performer~P99998~Ken Loach~kenloach]]'s [[Feature~V134658~Land and Freedom~landandfreedom]] (1995), [[Performer~P91804~Jean-Luc Godard~jeanlucgodard]]'s [[Feature~V154509~For Ever Mozart~forevermozart]] (1996), [[Performer~P188374~Laurence Barbosa~laurenceferreirabarbosa]]'s [[Feature~V193594~La Vie Moderne~laviemoderne]] (2000), and [[Performer~P328795~Philippe Claudel~philippeclaudel]]'s [[Feature~V431649~I've Loved You So Long~ivelovedyousolong]] (2007). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
