Philippe Noiret was born on October 1, 1930 in Lille (France).
After several failure with the baccalaureat and a stop in its
studies, Philippe Noiret decides to be directed towards the
theatre and takes courses to become actor. In 1953, it integrates
the troop of the Popular National Theatre (it is which it will
make the meeting of Monique Chaumette, who will become his wife
in 1962 and with whom it will have a girl) and occurs in many
parts. It is tested with the cinema since 1956 while appearing
in "the Short Point", or a few times later in "Zazie
In the Subway", but these short appearances do not enable
him to burst the screen.
It is thus with the
theatre that Philippe Noiret expresses himself until the end
of the 60 and its first true role in "the Life Of Castle"

Philippe de Broca, etc.) and turns with the largest actors.

to play to feel the public. In 2005, it makes its last film

Guerin-Tillié. In July 2006 it receives the Legion Of
Honor, rewards ultimate coming to greet its talent. November
