Gérard Xavier Marcel Depardieu (born 27 December 1948) is one of the most prominent French actors since his Star-Making Role in Les Valseuses in 1974. As of 2016, he has starred in around 180 films since 1967. The go-to guy for many leading roles in Period Pieces (either Historical Domain Characters or great historical novel characters), as well as Foil, Large Ham, Big Fun, Big Eaternote , Boisterous Bruiser, Gentle Giant and The Big Guy roles in French cinema. While most of his box office successes were comedies, he also garnered significant critical acclaim for his dramatic roles such as The Last Metro or Cyrano de Bergerac.

His most famous roles in TV miniseries include Edmond Dantès in The Count of Monte Cristo (1998), Jean Valjean in Les Misérables (2000), Joseph Fouché in Napoléon (2002) and the Mad Monk himself in Rasputin (2011).

Two out of his four children became actors, namely Julie (born in 1973), and Guillaume (1971-2008). Sadly, Guillaume died of pneumonia while filming in Romania.
