The actor Clément Michu has died
October 21, 2016
The famous figure of French cinema died Friday morning of natural causes at his home in Boulevard Gallieni to Nogent-sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne). Clément Michu was 80 years old.
Accustomed to playing supporting roles, he has staked the lives of moviegoers and TV series fans for over 50 years. For many he will remain Inspector Guyomard, the right arm of Commissioner Mill for almost 30 years. But to reduce his career to this single role would be reductive as this native of Villeurbanne, near Lyon, has embodied characters. Friends of the director Gérard Oury, he said “He was lucky”, he starred in “The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob”, “La Grande vadrouille”, the “La Folie des grandeurs” and many other films.
He was also recognized a lot on the street for his role in the series ‘Thierry La Fronde’.
