I started acting in 2010, taking acting classes in "Le Laboratoire de l'Acteur" in Paris, a few months later, I've been selected in a national audition to be part in a short film which premiered in Cannes Film Festival 2011.
Later I've been noticed by the director Philippe Lacôte to act as Basquiat in a short film called To Repel Ghosts (Toronto International Film Festival, Rotterdarm International Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival). The film is about the last trip of Jean-Michel Basquiat in Africa 2 years before he passed away.
Then, Philippe Lacôte gave me another shot by giving me a supporting role - The Admiral - in his first narrative feature film RUN. It premiered in Cannes - Un Certain Regard - this year and will go live in Cinema this November 2014 in France first. Before his release in Cinema, the film has been shown at Melbourne International Film Festival and at Toronto International Film Festival.
