"I first decided to become an actor at school. A teacher gave us a play to do and that had a major impact. At first, I wanted to work in the theatre, but there was something about the ambience of film, especially American films, that always attracted me."

Need a badass with a deep voice and an authentic French accent? Call for Jean Reno!

Appearing as "that French tough guy" in many films, Juan Moreno y Herrera-Jiménez (born 30 July 1948) was born in Morocco, when it was a Spanish protectorate, and moved to France when he was seventeen. So the fact that his name is Juan (in French, Jean) Moreno (cut the first syllable and you have his artistic name) Herrera-Jimenez can make him a sort of Dashing Hispanic. Of course, he can also play other nationalities in a pinch, including a damn good Elvis Presley impersonation.

Also, he was Doraemon!!! No, seriously. See for yourself.
