He made his acting début at the age of 5 in the TV series Poly, produced by his mother, and went on to reprise his rôle in numerous sequels covering nine seasons until he reached 14. Another series, Belle et Sébastien, was dubbed into English and became school holiday viewing in the UK. Later he continued his career as an actor and also dabbled in directing.[citation needed]

He appeared again on screen in 2005 and 2006 for the first time in nearly a decade, on the France 3 programmes 12-14 and Pour le plaisir respectively, revealing that he now lives in near Dax, Landes, collects classic cars and runs a musical café.[3]
