Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The dark-haired, charismatic Anglade made his feature film debut in a small role in "L'Indiscretion" (1982) and followed with a critically-lauded leading role in Patrice Chereau's "L'Homme blesse/The Wounded Man" (1983). In the latter, the 28 year-old played a gay teenager who becomes infatuated with a criminal (Vittorio Mezzogiorno) whom he kills in a fit of passion. Anglade was featured in a minor role in Richard Dembo's Oscar-winning "Dangerous Moves/La Diagonale du fou" (1984) before gaining exposure as Zorg, the narrator of Jean-Jacques Beineix's story of obsessive love "Betty Blue/37.2 le matin" (1985). That same year, he was featured as a roller-skater in Luc Besson's "Subway".
