Pierre Richard (1934)

Type :  


Pierre Richard (born Pierre Richard Maurice Charles Léopold Defays , 16 August 1934 in Valenciennes, Nord) is a popular French actor best known for the roles of a clumsy daydreamer in comedy films. Richard is considered by many, such as Louis de Funès and Gérard Depardieu, to be one of the greatest and most talented French comedians in the last 50 years. He is also a film director and occasional singer.


Richard started his acting career in the strait. He worked with Robert again on Le grand blond avec une chaussure noire, and its sequel Le retour du grand blond; both these films were written by Francis Veber. Veber cast Richard when he directed his own first feature film: Le Jouet. Veber and Richard had a long and successful partnership during the 1980s, highlighted by three comedies — La Chèvre, Les Compères and Les Fugitifs — which paired Richard with Gérard Depardieu. Richard again moved behind the camera to direct On peut toujours rêver and Droit dans le mur'' .

In 2006 Richard received a lifetime achievement César Award from the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinema.

Richard is a wine grower. His 20-hectare vineyard produces some 80,000 bottles a year, including some 12,000 bottles of rosé under the "le Bel Évêque" label. Richard also owns a restaurant in Paris, Au pied de chameau.

Pierre used to live on a barge on the Seine in the middle of Paris. He still lives in Paris nowadays, when he is not dealing with his wine in the South Of France. He has two sons, both musicians: Olivier plays the saxophone with the group "Blues trottoir'" and Christophe plays the double bass. His grandson, Arthur Defays, is a model and a young actor.
