Gaspard Ulliel (born 25 November 1984) is a French actor and model. He is best known for playing the young Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal Rising, for playing Yves Saint Laurent in the 2014 biopic Saint Laurent and for being the face of Chanels' fragrance, Bleu de Chanel.
In 2004, he won a César Award for Most Promising Actor for his performance in A Very Long Engagement.
Ulliel was born in Boulogne-Billancourt (a suburb of Paris), to Christine, a runway show producer, and Serge Ulliel, a stylist. He has a scar on his left cheek as a result of an attack from a doberman when he attempted to ride the dog like a horse at the age of six. He quipped that the scar increases his emotional acting abilities because it looks like a dimple.
Ulliel attended the University of Saint-Denis, where he studied cinema. He began acting while he was still at school, appearing in Une Femme En Blanc, a film for French television. He also performed at the Cours Florent, where he was discovered by Les égarés director André Téchiné...
