At 15, he began his first theater classes at the studio Le Magasin. In the process he nabbed a role in Michel Munz and Gérard Bitton’s The Cactus, playing a young Clovis Cornillac. Thus launched a promising career, which took a pivotal turn with Laurence Ferreira Barbosa’s 2008 Dying or Feeling Better. His depiction of a teenager struggling to adapt after a move earned him a spot on the 2009 César shortlist for Most Promising Actor.
He went on to appear in Christopher Thompson’s Bus Palladium, as well as Clément Cogitore’s 15 Lads, which earned him further recognition from the César Academy, which shortlisted him again in the same category.
Pursuing comedic roles, he ventured into horror with John Erick Dowdle’s 2014 As Above, So Below and the American series Rosemary’s Baby, his first international role. He performed abroad again the following year alongside Michael Fassbender in Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank, before returning to French comedy with Igor Gotesman’s buddy movie Five, a major hit he headlined with Pierre Niney. In 2017, Cédric Klapisch cast him in Back to Burgundy.
2019 has been his most prolific year yet, with roles in Antonin Baudry’s The Wolf’s Call, Hugo Gélin’s Love at Second Sight, Safy Nebbou’s Who You Think I Am and Cédric Klapisch’s Deux Moi.
