This handsome Turkish-born actor is one of France's most popular stage and screen stars, but his vehicles do not always arrive on US shores. Karyo grew up in Paris, studied acting and by the late 1970s was appearing with the Daniel Sorano Company and the National Theatre of Strasbourg, in both modern and classical roles. He made his film debut in a supporting role in "The Return of Martin Guerre" (1982), and spent the next few years working his way up to leading roles in such films as "La Balance" (a 1982 detective film), "Le Marginal" (with Jean-Paul Belmondo, 1983), "L'Unique" (a 1985 sci-fi outing), "Le Moine et al Sorciere" (starring in this 1987 historical drama) and "The Bear" (as the dashing but easily-frightened young hunter in this 1988 outdoors epic).
