  Summary  

Philippe Torreton (born 13 October 1965, Rouen, Seine-Maritime, France) is a French actor.

  Biography  

Born in Rouen, to a teacher mother, and fireman father, Torreton grew up in a suburb of the city. A student at the lycée Val de Seine de Grand-Quevilly, he discovered there a certain liking for the theater that he nurtured, thanks to his teachers, - he often cites one in particular, - M.Désir. A student of CNSAD, he attended the classes of Madeleine Marion, Catherine Hiegel and Daniel Mesguich; he would return there, this time as a teacher, in October 2008.

Torreton entered the Comédie-Française in 1990 as a pensionnaire and became a sociétaire (shareholding member of the Comédie-Française) in 1994. He left in 1999 having played many prestigious roles including Scapin, Lorenzaccio, Hamlet, Henry V, Tartuffe.

He played Capitaine Conan in the film of the same name, directed by Bertrand Tavernier, based on a little known incident from the time of the First World War, and for which he won the César Award for Best Actor 1997. And, a politically committed actor, he played the role of the principal of a primary school confronted with social problems in Ça commence aujourd'hui, again directed by Tavernier, in 1998.

He has been elected in the Municipal council of the 9th arrondissement of Paris.
