François Civil, a French actor born in Paris in 1990, continues to impress the world of cinema. From his appearance in Ce qui nous lie by Cédric Klapisch in 2017, to his role as d’Artagnan in The Three Musketeers by Martin Bourboulon in 2023 alongside Eva Green, Vincent Cassel, Romain Duris, Louis Garrel… He confirms his status as a rising star.
Civil made a name for himself in 2016 with Five and his noticeable hair transformation. His ability to metamorphose, both physically and artistically, has earned him a series of diverse roles. His roles in Bac Nord, a big hit in 2021, and Une zone à défendre with Lyna Khoudri, have boosted his fame.
His humble approach and accessible take on acting, despite a rapid rise, sets him apart in the industry. Civil insists on the importance of distance between his personal life and his roles, while choosing films that reflect his convictions, without ever taking a political stance.
In Une zone à défendre, he plays a DGSI officer faced with ethical dilemmas. Civil has also worked with actors like Pierre Niney, forming a comedic duo. Their collaboration, from Five to the Netflix series Fiasco, demonstrates their on-screen chemistry.
His career, marked by demanding role choices, shows constant evolution. Civil does not rest on his laurels and continues to reinvent himself. He lost weight for Une zone à défendre, learned horse riding and fencing for The Three Musketeers, and even exiled himself to perfect his acting skills.
Cédric Klapisch, who has directed him several times, praises his intuitive modernism and richness of performance. Civil’s future collaborations are eagerly awaited, both by the public and film professionals.
In the latest news, he is reportedly in a relationship with a fellow actress named Adèle…
