With passion, passion and generosity, Jean Périmony has brought several generations of actors to the stage.

As a theatre teacher, then at the head of the famous school he had founded in 1961, «Péri», according to the nickname given to him by his apprentice actors, was a born smuggler.

A former actor himself, he has “blossomed” – that was his expression – the personality of several generations of actors: Fanny Ardant, Sabine Azéma, Nicole Garcia, Jean-Pierre Bacri, François Cluzet, André Dussollier, Gérard Darmon, Arthur Jugnot,  Mélanie Doutey, Camille Cottin, Sara Giraudeau and many others.

Audrey Azoulay, Minister of Culture and Communication, sends her deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
