From action flops to arthouse acclaim

17 June 2010 2:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A reputation for starring in straight-to-video action flops isn't usually a ticket to arthouse acclaim, but that's just how things have worked out for Christophe Lambert

Christophe Lambert cuts a distinctly American-in-Paris figure as he strolls, Blackberry in hand, to the table where his bottle of Coke Zero and pack of Marlboros are lying in wait. Against the marble- floored, chandelier-lit lobby of Paris' Hotel Crillon, his choice of dress – jeans, trainers and black sweatshirt rolled up to the elbows – seems even more defiantly un-French. Who needs chic when you've got Hollywood?

But, comfortingly familiar though the aura is, this is not the Lambert who became a star in Highlander in 1986, all tousled blond mane and piercingly blue eyes. His hair is now sleek, kempt and grey. He peers through spectacles – his myopia is so severe he often has to act without being able to see very much.
