Is it due to his high stature, his deep and at the same time melodious voice that Eriq Ebouaney symbolizes quiet strength?

In any case, on the stage as well as on the big or small screen, the actor often plays men of character, like Patrice Lumumba, the hero of Congolese independence under Raoul Peck or when directed by Thomas Ngigol and Fabrice Éboué.

We also find Eriq Ebouaney in the films of Brian de Palma, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Cédric Klapisch, Claire Denis etc where he gives the line to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) or Kevin Costner.

Or on a more militant terrain. At the time of the 45th César ceremony, this Frenchman of Cameroonian origin raised the tone and, together with Olivier Marchal, Mathieu Kassovitz, Aïssa Maïga, Sonia Rolland and other professionals of the 7th art, wrote a column in Le Parisien in which they called for a better inclusion in French cinema of people from the DOM-TOM and African and Asian immigration.

What is less well known is that the actor who shoots a lot, in different countries and different languages (French, English, German, Italian, Arabic and Swahili), is a child of le Marais.

A neighbourhood where he landed three decades ago and of which he knows every nook and cranny.
