Biography

Jean Marais, the famous French actor and director, was born in Cherbourg in 1913. Marais starred in over 100 films during his lifetime, but as well as his career in film, Marais was also known for his writing, painting and sculpture. He was particularly respected as a sculptor and focussed on this skill after 1970 when he began to concentrate more on stage work rather than film. He spent the latter years of his life living in Vallauris, the ceramic and pottery capital of the time, where he mixed with the likes of Pablo Picasso amongst others.
