French Cinema Mourns Death of Jean Rochefort, a Much Loved Actor

PARIS – Jean Rochefort, one of France’s best-known actors with more than 120 movies packed into his filmography, died on Monday at the age of 87, his daughter Clemence said.

Born on April 29, 1930, in Paris, Rochefort had been admitted to hospital in August due to health problems.

His performances included “Lost in La Mancha” in the role of Don Quixote, and “The Artist and the Model” directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Fernando Trueba.

He began his career in Paris in the 1950s and his friends included Jean-Pierre Marielle, Claude Rich, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Annie Girardot.

He was instantly recognizable to film-goers for his warm voice and his immaculate moustaches.

He appeared in “Phantom of Liberty” in 1974, a surrealist film directed by Spanish master, Luis Buńuel.

Rochefort was awarded an honorary Cesar Prize in 1999 and was one of the France’s most beloved thespians, both for his film roles as his appearances on French television series.
