JEAN-CLAUDE DREYFUS (Eugène Normandin) was born in Paris. When Dreyfus was eight-years-old, he gave his first performance in La jolie meunière de Maître Jacques. In his teens, he worked as a magician, but then decided to go into theatre. He studied with the acclaimed acting teacher Tania Balachova until her death in 1973.

Since then he has performed for the theatre, cinema and television. He has also directed many of his own projects. Dreyfus is renowned for his ability to interpret difficult characters and for making apparently simple characters more complex. In 1992 he received a Cesar nomination for best supporting actor for his performance in Jeunet and Caro's Delicatessen.

His feature credits include Lovely Rita, Rien voila l'ordre, L'Anglaise et le Duc, Tiré à part, The City of Lost Children, Cache-Cash and Bonsoir. On television, he was most recently seen in Maigret à l'école.

His prodigious theatre career includes nominations for two best actor Molieres, first in 1991 for La Nonna and again in 1998 for Hygiène de l'assassin.
