Date of Birth : Apr 10th 1973
Heart-throb Guillaume Canet is a top actor in France. Son of horse breeders, the young man spent his childhood in the countryside near Paris. In his youth, Guillaume wanted to be a horse-rider, and briefly followed a professional career in the sport. A bad fall broke his dreams, but is at the origin of his acting career, and success. After briefly studying acting, he started his career with the success we know. Often cast in roles of naive young men, Canet knew how to be hired for other parts. Chiseled features and real talent brought him to stardom quite soon, and he is probably best known in the UK for his role in The Beach in 2000 alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Eclectic and moving, Canet is also a successful director, who has worked with his wife Diane Kruger. A star in France, well-known in continental Europe, Guillaume could become easily one of the greatest actors of the next decade.
