Actor Fernandel


  • Birth name:

    Fernand Joseph Désiré Contandin

  • Date of Birth:

    Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône, France


The apocryphal biography of Fernand Contadin tells the invention of his artistic name Fernandel by his sister-in-law ("Voici le Fernand d'elles"). At the beginning of the thirties he became a typical actor of the comedy genre: popular, common, likable and with a concealed grain of drama. Marc Allégret was the director of his first successful film La meilleure bobonne (1930). He tried to work as director twice during World War II but did not succeed in that.
