PHILIPPE AMBROSINI

PHILIPPE AMBROSINI

Actor

For Philippe Ambrosini, being an actor is a true social commitment. When he was twelve years old, he used the school yard as a theater stage. After skipping classes for years, he decided to put himself out and start an actor career. He shone on stage while reciting infinite monologues as well as embracing rhetoric and replicas. At 25 years old, he won the Fullbright grant, left for New York and learned from Jack Garfein. In the 1990s, he played in "Mamy Wata" by Moustafa Diop, "Transit" by Antonio Negret, "Doggy Bag" by Fréderic Comtet, "Pigalle" and "Bye-Bye" by Karim Dridi. Philippe Ambrosini also worked alongside Michel Galabru and Rossy de Palma in "Hors jeu" by Karim Dridi, Roger Hanin in "Navarro", Alain Delon in "Franck Riva" and Gérard Depardieu in "Les Misérables". More recently, we saw him on the big screen in "Vive la France" by Michaël Youn and "La vie très privée de Monsieur Sim" by Michel Leclerc and on television in the TV show Boulevard du palais.
