It is dressed in an unstructured black tuxedo, long locks falling in front of his eyes, that Gaspard Ulliel receives his first César at 20 years old. Acclaimed by the public, he climbed the few steps of the Théâtre du Châtelet stage to collect his statuette of Best Male Hope for his role as Manech Langonnet in
Un Long Dimanche de fiançailles
. Rather confident on stage, Gaspard Ulliel kisses Diane Kruger who gives him his prize and begins a speech of thanks that he was "unable, he says, to prepare in advance". He adds: “I would really like to thank Jean-Pierre
who trusted me by offering me this role. This is how I had a unique experience and I think I will keep very good memories of it.

Cesar for best actor
He was only 20 years old at the time, and this award served as a springboard for this pretty face who was really starting out in this great industry that is cinema.
Subsequently, he collaborated with directors such as Gus Van Sant, Peter Webber, Rithy Panh, Bertrand Tavernier, Emmanuel Mouret and Xavier Dolan.
He embodies Gaspar, Hannibal Lecter, Joseph, Henri de Guise or even Yves Saint Laurent.
And traces his path to receiving the grail, César for best actor (for
Just the end of the world
, by Xavier Dolan) in 2017.
