Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

French actor Vincent Lindon's career began in the early 1980s with a minor role in the French thriller "The Hawk" (1983), but he went on to appear in several dozen acclaimed films, garnering four nominations for Cesar Awards in the process. Born into a well-off family in the suburbs of Paris, Lindon started his professional acting career while still in his early 20s, appearing in small films like "Notre histoire" (1984), as well as the made-for-TV movies "The Ebony Tower" (1984) and "Une vie comme je veux" (1985), opposite legendary French actress Miou-Miou. His breakout role came in 1992 when he landed the lead role in the musical comedy "La crise," which garnered a Cesar Award nomination for Best Actor. He was nominated for a second Cesar in 1999 for his role in "My Little Business," a dramedy about a French woodworker who has fallen on hard times. In the early 2000s, Lindon's career continued to move forward at a prolific rate, often starring in two or three films a year. In 2009, Lindon was nominated for his fourth Cesar Award for "Welcome," a French drama about an Iraqi boy that must learn to swim across the English Channel.
