Jérôme Charvet is a French actor who has appeared in films since 2005.


Early life and family

Jérôme Charvet was born and raised in Paris, France. He also lived in Cannes for a few years as a teenager. His grandfather, Raymond Carré, is the three-star general in the French Army medical department who designed the entire training program for the first French astronauts, Jean-Loup Chrétien and Patrick Baudry. His father Christian Charvet is a sculptor. When he turned 15, he started performing Shakespeare monologues in English and became the lead member of his highschool's theatre company.


After training at the Cours Florent acting school in Paris, he moved to New York City at the early age of 19. There he studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute under the tutelage of Paul Calderon and Irma Sandrey, two members of The Actors Studio. He then got accepted into the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and studied with master teacher Ron Burrus, former assistant of Stella Adler.


He started out his career on stage at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre and the Roy Arias Theatre. After starring in short films and in the independent movie Falling Overnight shot in Los Angeles, his film career kicked off in Paris in 2013 with Amour et turbulences (Love Is In The Air), directed by Alexandre Castagnetti, with French actors Ludivine Sagnier and Nicolas Bedos. That year, he also lent his voice to “Follow Me”, a campaign for the fashion brand Maje, where he observes three Parisian women and "comments them with humor". He then starred with Jean Reno in the TV series Jo, which was broadcast internationally. More recently, he played opposite Gérard Depardieu in the movie United Passions directed by Frédéric Auburtin, also starring Tim Roth and Sam Neill. The movie recounts the story of the FIFA World Cup’s creation and was in the 2014 Cannes Film Festival official selection.
