Melvil poupaud of laurence anyways on the film and his character
Melvil Poupaud (born 26 January 1973) is a French actor, author and filmmaker.
Poupaud's first appearance was, as a child, in Raúl Ruiz's 1983 film City of Pirates. He met Raul Ruiz through his mother, Chantal Poupaud, who was a well-known press relations officer in the French cinema world.
He starred in François Ozon's Time to Leave, and co-starred with Parker Posey in Zoe Cassavetes' Broken English.
He also appeared in films such as Eric Rohmer's A Summer's Tale, Arnaud Desplechin's A Christmas Tale, and François Ozon's The Refuge.
He co-starred with Suzanne Clément in Xavier Dolan's Laurence Anyways.
Having led a selective career, grown in a family having close links with the cinema world, he has been close to figures of the Parisian intelligentsia during the seventies and eighties, such as Marguerite Duras or Jacques Lacan.
