Guy Marchand Biography

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

The slightly ruddy-faced, très-Gallic actor Guy Marchand chalked up an impressive resumé of supporting roles for himself, beginning in the early '70s. In nearly every instance, Marchand evinced a sharp, heightened aptitude for supporting five-star French actors onscreen -- everyone from Bernadette Lafont and Charles Denner to Philippe Noiret and Isabelle Huppert. In fact, even if Marchand's name may not be instantly recognizable to American viewers, his resumé reads like a best-of list of French "international crossover" features from the 1970s and '80s: Such a Gorgeous Kid Like Me (Truffaut, 1972); Cousin Cousine (Jean-Charles Tacchella, 1975); Coup de Torchon (Bertrand Tavernier, 1981), and many, many other acclaimed films were graced with his presence. More recently, Marchand worked for Christophe Honoré, alongside Romain Duris and Louis Garrel, on the chamber drama Inside Paris (2006). Marchand also appeared with Catherine Deneuve in the haunting, slightly menacing psychological drama Après Lui (2007). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
