Olivier Martinez
Olivier Martinez

Born: on 01/12/66 in Paris, France
His mother is French and his father is Spanish-Moroccan.

Dark and handsome, 5'11", Olivier Martinez won his first international notice with "The Horseman on the Roof" (1995), in which he played a dashing 19th Century Italian cavalry officer who falls in love with a married woman (Juliette Binoche).

Martinez slipped into acting. Both his father and grandfather had owned garages, and after Martinez finished schooling in his native Paris, he worked in numerous jobs for about five years before deciding on acting as a career. His first film roles were in "Plein fer/Full Steel" (1990), the story of a potentially deadly petanque competition, and Jean-Jacques Beineix's "IP5" (1991). In the latter, he portrayed a graffiti artist whose life is changed by a an odd old man (Yves Montand).

The next year he won the most promising actor Cesar Award for Bertrand Blier's "1,2,3 Soleil". Jean-Paul Rappeneau's "The Horseman on the Roof"--a stunning romance in which Martinez and Binoche do not even kiss--and "Mon Homme/My Man" (1996) followed.

In 2000, Martinez offered a superlative supporting performance as Cuban writer Lazaro Gomez Carriles in "Before Night Falls", Julian Schnabel's film adaptation of the memoirs of Cuban author Reinaldo Arenas. The actor had the challenge of portraying Arenas' friend (who also contributed to the script) who steadfastly stood by the writer through his battle with AIDS. The actor's considerable sexual magnetism was unleashed on mainstream audiences when he appeared in director Adian Lyne's "Unfaithful" (2002) as the roguish, young and charismatic rare book dealer who tempts Diane Lane into a steamy but disastrous extramarital affair. In the wake of this breakout performance, Martinez was cast as an incarcerated drug kingpin who offers up $100 million to anyone who can free him from police custody in the big-budget, action-oriented film version of the 70s TV crime drama "S.W.A.T." (2003)

a stranger in paradise
French actor Olivier Martinez brings his je ne sais quoi to American shores.
Finding an actor attractive enough to credibly tempt Diane Lane's suburban mom to betray a loving husband played by Richard Gere was likely one of the bigger challenges facing director Adrian Lyne as he prepared to make next month's Unfaithful. But Lyne, who's demonstrated that he knows a thing or two about filming illicit desire (his body of work includes Indecent Proposal, Fatal Attraction, and Lolita), discovered just what he needed in Olivier Martinez. The almond eyed 36-year-old's innate intensity seems to inspire the right kind of breathlessness: He's been called, among other things, "the French Brad Pitt." That his only prior English-language credit was the art-house hit Before Night Full (he costarred with Javier Bardem, who's been called, it must be noted, "the Spanish Brad Pitt") is so much the better. What's more intriguing, than a handsome stranger?
For his part, Martinez welcomes the chance to be the new boy on the Hollywood block. A self-described "real Parisian," he planned to follow in his father's footsteps by going into boxing, followed by a more stable career as a mechanic. But after a few years, he gave it up. On a whim, Martinez, then 24, auditioned for the Conservatoire National Supťrieur d"Art Dramatique. He was accepted. "It was a kind of miracle," Martinez says. "By chance I had this opportunity and I took it and my life changed." For his first film he was nominated for a Cťsar; he won for his second. So why did Martinez, who's now living in Los Angeles, switch to our sunny shores?. "The thing like most in my work is to start over again, to be always the beginner, " he explains. "In French, I was totally under control. In English" he pauses, searching for the words- "I don't control anything." - LAUREN WATERMAN:
