Philippe Lefebvre

Philippe Lefebvre is a seasoned French television actor who began performing in 1991, his debut role being a small part in the short-lived drama series "Cas de Divorce." And he continued to gain experience, acting in both television series and movies. His first comedic turn was in the short film "Echec au Capital," which parodied Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their creation of the influential "Das Kapital." Lefebvre's career took a new path when he met actor Guillaume Canet on the set of the film "Barracuda" in 1997. The duo became creative partners and worked together in a string of films in the early 2000s, with Lefebvre producing and Canet starring. In 2000, they wrote and starred in "Whatever You Say," which was nominated for a European Film Award and won a l'Étoile d'Or. Lefebvre continued screenwriting and eventually achieved success when he co-wrote the 2006 film "Tell No One." The crime thriller received ample recognition and won numerous awards, even earning Lefebvre a César Award for his writing. Lefebvre made his directorial debut in 2009 with "The Whistler," a comedic crime film that takes place on the French Riviera.
