Before Fame

He made his professional acting debut in 2022. His first role was as a boy with his arm in a cast in the comedic TV movie 1H30 Max. 


He initially intended to audition for Lupin with the hopes of merely earning a role as an extra; however, he almost lost the chance to appear in the show at all when he arrived late to casting. He decided to leave his contact information with the staff in a last-ditch effort and before long, he was contacted to audition for the leading role of young Assane.

Family Life

A January 2021 article by Soir Mag stated that the young actor had been nervous for his family to see the famous swimming pool kissing scene he had filmed for Lupin.
