Philippe Spall is a London based bilingual Anglo-French actor, and is often seen playing French accented characters on screen. Most notably he was the irate chef Monsieur Courbet in the first Downton Abbey movie. Stage credits include Against (Almeida, dir. Ian Rickson), Trash Cuisine (Young Vic, Belarus Free Theatre) and Cyrano De Bergerac (with Marianne Badrichani).
Although he has played many French characters on the British screen, and performed in English in France, Molière : Je t'aime moi non plus will be his first French theatre piece in England.
