Christian Clavier

Birthday: May 6, 1952
Birthplace: Paris, France
Christian Clavier is a French actor born May 6, 1952 in Paris. After his studies at Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) he started his acting career with the comedic theater troupe Splendid and participated in a number of burlesque films with the troupe, which had hits with films like Les Bronzés font du ski and Le Père Noël est une ordure, where he is a transvestite in this film. His most notable success without the Splendid group, and by far his biggest hit to date, was in the 1993 film les Visiteurs, where he played a character known as Jacquouille la fripouille; the character's cry of "Okkkkkkkayyyyyyy!!!" became a popular exclamation after the movie's success. After les Visiteurs he was a certified star, participating in big-budget films like Astérix et Obélix contre César, Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopâtre, and the sequel and remake of Visiteurs. He also played several dramatic roles on television, including M. Thénardier in Les Misérables (2000 television version) and Napoléon in a biographical television film. He also runs a production company, Ouille Production.
