Romain Duris Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: May 28, 1974
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Multiple César Award nominee Romain Duris got his big break in such French films as [[Performer~P228162~Jan Kounen~jankounen]]'s over-the-top action thriller [[Feature~V156909~Dobermann~dobermann]] before gaining notable stateside exposure in such arthouse hits as [[Feature~V246183~CQ~cq]] and [[Feature~V281050~Le Divorce~ledivorce]]. While some may have suspected that the broodingly handsome rising star was setting his sights on Hollywood in the early 2000s, subsequent roles in such French-language hits as [[Feature~V266229~L' Auberge Espagnole~laubergeespagnole]] (opposite [[Feature~V244109~Amélie~amélie]] star [[Performer~P267962~Audrey Tautou~audreytautou]]), [[Feature~V309390~Osmose~osmose]], and [[Feature~V306957~Exils~exils]] proved that he was still very much a fixture of French cinema. In 2005, Duris captivated cinemaphiles as a talented young pianist wrestling with the temptation to follow in the footsteps of his brutish father in director/co-writer [[Performer~P80170~Jacques Audiard~jacquesaudiard]]'s stylish drama [[Feature~V322884~The Beat That My Heart Skipped~thebeatthatmyheartskipped]]. On the heels of Most Promising Actor César nominations for such previous efforts as [[Feature~V158670~Gadjo Dilo~thecrazystranger]] and [[Feature~V184382~Peut-Être~peutêtre]], it seemed that Duris had finally graduated to full-fledged star when he was nominated simply as Best Actor for his role in the film. The following year, Duris would impress as the dramatic lead in [[Feature~V330744~The Russian Dolls~russiandolls]], and in 2007 he would portray 17th century playwright [[Performer~P218044~Jean-Baptiste Poquelin dit Molière~jeanbaptistemolière]] in the [[Performer~P407866~Laurent Tirard~laurenttirard]] comedy drama [[Feature~V379977~Molière~molière]]. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
