Biography

French actor Frédéric Anscombre’s first experience on stage was at the age of 14, playing in Molière’s “L’Avare” at his high school in Saint Germain en Laye (a little town beside Paris’ which saw the birth of Louis XIV). His first craft, however, was music: the saxophone and jazz in particular, which he discovered at age 11. This passion would lead him to the artistic direction of a record label. Later an encounter and training with Jack Garfein (the renowned actor’s director and partner of Lee Strasberg at Actor’s Studio) would mark his return to acting. From then on Frédéric would appear in a great many successful French television series (H, Profilage, No Limit, R.I.S, Les Bleus, Magellan, Les Toqués, etc…), as well as in the last season of « Sex and the City ». French cinema would also call on him: under the direction of Eric Valette in “Une Affaire d’Etat”, and Nicolas Boukhrief in “Gardiens de L’Ordre”. In 2006 he was in the David Fincher produced feature “Love And Other Disasters” under the direction of Alek Keshishian with the late Brittany Murphy. In addition to his profession, Frédéric would hone his skills in the art of Shorinji Kempo -a Japonese Martial Art-, obtaining two European championship titles and a 6th Dan. He would also tread the boards again, participating in two creations of Robert Hossein ( L’Affaire Seznec and L’Affaire Dominici ) at the Théâtre De Paris, one of the biggest theatre in town. In 2015 he shot “Puerto Ricans In Paris”, under the direction of Ian Edelman and starring, Luis Guzman and Rosario Dawson. The following year he would move on to another Anglo-Saxon production, “Overdrive”, directed by Antonio Negret and in which he would play opposite Scott Eastwood .
