Personal Quote:

One works in the theatre because one senses that one has never been oneself, that one cannot be oneself - that, at last, one has found the way to become oneself.

Trivia:

In 1941, having experienced serious problems with the censorship of the German occupier, he took his repertory company on international tours. He was not to return to France until the war was over. See more »
