Son of a nurse and a bank employee, Benoît Magimel was born in Paris and grew up there. At age 12, he played Momo in Life Is a Long Quiet River (1988) by Étienne Chatiliez. He stopped his studies at age 16 to become an actor. But he had a dual personality: on one hand the man of low budget films like A Single Girl (1995), A Minute of Silence (1998), The King Is Dancing (2000), Déjà mort (1998), Thieves (1996), To Matthieu (2000) alongside Nathalie Baye, The Flower of Evil (2003), Errances (2003), The Children of the Century (1999) with Juliette Binoche, The Bridesmaid (2004) with Laura Smet, The Piano Teacher (2001) alongside Isabelle Huppert, and on the other hand also wide audience releases like The Nest (2002), Crimson Rivers 2: Angels of the Apocalypse (2004), Duplicity (2005), Strange Gardens (2003), and Sky Fighters (2005). Charming, ambiguous, talented Benoit Magimel will probably illuminate the next decade, and more.
