Jacques Perrin (born Jacques André Simonet; 13 July 1941 – 21 April 2022) was a French actor and film producer.[1] He was occasionally credited as Jacques Simonet.

Early life

Jacques André Simonet was born on the Boulevard Port-Royal in Paris on 13 July 1941.[2][3] His father, Alexandre Simonet (1899 - ) was the manager of the Comédie-Française and his mother was the actress Marie Perrin (1902 - 1983), whose surname he will adopt as his stage name once he began performing. He is also the nephew of the actor Antoine Balpêtré,who was also his sister’s godfather.

Until the age of eleven, he was educated at a boarding school. After obtaining his school certificate he left school at the age of 15 and worked as a teletypist at Air France and in various retail jobs before he entered the theatre world, working with Antoine Balpêtré.[4] Three years later, Perrin enrolled in acting classes at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique.[4]

Career

His first film role was an un-credited part in the 1946 film Les Portes de la nuit. It wasn't until 1957 that he again appeared on film, this time in a credited role in 'La Peau de l'ours.

It was while performing in a production at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique that he was noticed by the Italian director Valerio Zurlini.[4] Zurlini was impressed enough with his talent to cast him in his first lead role, as a juvenile falling for a helpless Claudia Cardinale in the 1960 romantic drama La Ragazza con la valigia.[5] Perrin became one of Zurlini's favorite actors[6] acting for him in the role of Marcello Mastroianni's brother in  Cronaca Familiare  (1962) which was internationally released under the title Family Diary.

He then played roles in films by Henri-Georges Clouzot (The Truth in 1960) and Mauro Bolognini (Corruption in 1963), and leading roles in four films by Pierre Schoendoerffer: La 317e Section (1965), Le Crabe-tambour (1977), A Captain's Honor (1982) and Là-haut, un roi au dessus des nuages (2004).

He appeared in two musical movies by Jacques Demy: The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) and Donkey Skin (1970), both with Catherine Deneuve. At 27, he created a film production company and produced and acted in Z, directed by Costa-Gavras and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Yves Montand, and Irene Papas. Z received the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1969.

He produced the Costa-Gavras films État de Siège (1973) and Section spéciale (1975). Both had political themes, and as a producer, Perrin continued along this path with a documentary on the Algerian War (La guerre d'Algérie) and a film on the Chilean presidency of Salvador Allende (La Spirale). In 1973, he produced the first film by Benoît Lamy, Home Sweet Home in which he starred alongside Claude Jade as his love interest. The movie received 14 international awards.

In 1976, he produced another Oscar-winning film: La Victoire en chantant (Black and White in Color) by director Jean-Jacques Annaud. Around the same time, he embarked on Il deserto dei Tartari (1976) as a producer and an actor, co-starring Trintignant again, but also Max von Sydow, Vittorio Gassman and Philippe Noiret. The film won the Grand Prix du Cinéma Français. He was cast as the adult Salvatore in Cinema Paradiso (1988), an international success.

Perrin then devoted himself to making nature documentaries. He was the producer of Microcosmos in 1995 and producer and co-director of Winged Migration in 2001, Océans in 2009 and Seasons in 2015.

On screen, Perrin played the part of the old Pierre Morhange, narrator of the internationally successful film The Chorus, which he also produced. The young Pépinot was played by his son Maxence.

On the Parisian stage, he gave over 400 performances in the popular French play L'Année du bac (Graduation Year), by José-André Lacour, starting in 1958.

Awards

Jacques Perrin received distinctions such as the Commander of the Legion of Honour and Commander of the National Order of the Merit.

In 1966, he won two Best Actor awards at the Venice Film Festival, for the Italian film Almost a Man and the Spanish film The Search.

In 2015, he became a member of the French Marine Painters and was promoted to Commander as a reserve officer in the French Navy.

In 2016, he received the prestigious Prix du Cinéma René Clair from the French Academy.

Personal life

He married Chantal Isabelle Laure Emmanuelle Bouillaut (born in 1950) on 8 November 1974 in Courbevoie, Hauts-de-Seine.[7] The marriage ended in divorce on 30 April 1985.[4][7] The couple had a son, Mathieu who was born on 1 May 1975. [2]

He subsequently married Valentine Marie Monique Florence Perrin on 1 December 1995 in Neuilly-sur-Seine.[8] Valentine was born on 24 April 1966 in Saumur.[8] She is a producer best known for 1999 TV documentary series La 25e Heure and 2021 film Le loup et le lion (The Wolf and the Lion) [9] The couple had two sons, Mathieu, Maxence who was born on 1 April 1995, and Lancelot, who was born 2000.[4] Both Mathieu and Maxence are actors.
