Spanish by birth, Moroccan-born Jean Renault later migrated to France with his family, joined the military, and eventually established himself as a true Frenchman. He is recognized by the viewer in this capacity. Renaud has always been drawn to acting, so he enrolls in Rene Simon’s acting classes in Paris before even deciding on his country of origin. The first film featuring Renault’s participation was released exactly 40 years ago, making 2019 Renault’s cinematic anniversary.
