Actor
Robert Le Vigan was a French actor. Born Robert-Charles-Alexandre Coquillaud in Paris, he appeared in more than 60 films between 1931 and 1943 almost exclusively in small or supporting roles. He was, according to film academic Ginette Vincendeau, a "brilliant, extravagant actor" who "specialised in louche, menacing or diabolical characters". A collaborator with the Nazis during the occupation, who openly expressed fascist attitudes, he vanished while playing Jéricho in Children of Paradise, a film deliberately released in May 1945 shortly after the liberation of Europe; Le Vigan was replaced by Pierre Renoir. Sentenced to forced labour for ten years in 1946, he absconded to Spain, and then Argentina, dying there in 1972 in the city of Tandil.
