“You don’t have to be wise, polite, when you’re an actor. If you want to smash a stool, you smash the stool.”
After several appearances as a child in short films and television, Finnegan Oldfield launched his film career in Christian Faure’s 2008 Behind the Walls. Three years later, director Tristan Aurouet offered him a lead role in his film Blind Valley. He went on to appear in several short films as well as features including Volker Schlöndorff’s Calm at Sea, also in 2011, Nabil Ben Yadir’s The Marchers in 2013 and Tony Gatlif’s Geronimo in 2014.
He stood out again the following year in two leading roles, in Clément Cogitore’s Neither Heaven Nor Earth and in Thomas Bidegain’s The Cowboys, for which he was nominated for the 2016 César Award for Most Promising Actor. Roles then followed in such films as Stéphane Brizé’s A Woman’s Life, Katell Quillévéré’s Heal the Living, Bertrand Bonello’s Nocturama, Mathieu Sapin’s We Need Your Vote, Éric Barbier’s Promise at Dawn and Anne Fontaine’s Reinventing Marvin. This last performance earned him another César nomination for Most Promising Actor in 2018. He recently appeared in the anthology film Selfie, Emmanuel Hamon’s Escape from Raqqa and Mathias Gokalp’s mini-series Wild Love. He also appears in Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh’s Gagarine and Naël Marandin’s Les Dévorants, in theaters soon.
