Last Night recently and wow was I charmed by this young man
Check out a preview:
Such a handsome talented man he is.
I actually first mistaken-ed him for
Grey's Anatomy McDreamy or Patrick Dempsey.
For those of us who don't know Guillaume Canet here is what IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base has to say:
- Date of Birth: 10 April 1973
- Place of Birth: Boulogne Billancourt, France
- Height: 5' 10¾" (1.80 m)
Heart-throb Guillaume Canet is a top actor in France.
Son of horse breeders, the young man spent his childhood in the countryside near Paris.
In his youth, Guillaume wanted to be a horse-rider, and briefly followed a professional career in the sport.
A bad fall broke his dreams, but is at the origin of his acting career, and success.
After briefly studying acting, he started his career with the success we know.
Often cast in roles of naive young men, Canet knew how to be hired for other parts.
Chiseled features and real talent brought him to stardom quite soon.
Eclectic and moving,
Canet is also a successful director, who has worked with his wife Diane Kruger.
A star in France, well-known in continental Europe, Guillaume could become easily one of the greatest actors of the next decade
