Early lifeEdit

Blanc was born in Paris, the son of a French father and an English mother. He moved to England with his mother at the age of five, where he was educated at Bramcote School in Scarborough, North Yorkshire and Sedbergh School in Sedbergh, Cumbria. At the age of 16, he successfully auditioned for the National Youth Theatre. In 1987, he was accepted at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), the youngest person to do so that year. He graduated in 1990 and, after a short sabbatical travelling, began his theatre career.

CareerEdit

At one time, Blanc ran his own theatre company and was working with companies on the London scene, collaborating with directors, including Rufus Norris, Howard Davies and Peter Hall at the Royal National Theatre. In 2001, after 12 years almost exclusively working in theatre, he played Luigi Vampa in The Count of Monte Cristo. Since moving to the United States, he has appeared in television series such as Breaking Bad, Cold Case, CSI: New York, Raising the Bar, The Unit, Crash, NYPD Blue, Prison Break, Dr. Vegas and The Company.

Blanc has appeared in films, including The Incredible Hulk, Tristan & Isolde, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Moonlight Serenade. He has done voice-work for video games such as Dante's Inferno, Darksiders, Wildstar and James Bond 007: From Russia with Love, in which he played Turkish agent Kerim Bey. In 2013, he voiced Zinyak and Phillipe Loren in Saints Row IV. In 2014, he voiced Commander Kuben Blisk in Titanfall.
