Argentine actor Nahuel Pérez Biscayart joined the Buenos Aires School of Fine Arts before training in private comedy workshops. He went on to perform in a series of plays and films both for cinema and television in Argentina. Aged only 21, he was awarded the Rolex bursary, which took him to New York, where he joined Kate Valk's company, The Wooster Group. In 2008, having returned to Argentina, a part in Pablo Fendrik's La Sangre Brota (Semaine de la Critique, Cannes 2008) brought him to the attention of the public. During a trip to Paris, Benoît Jacquot offered him the leading part in Au fond des bois (Deep in the Woods), which premiered at the Locarno Festival in 2010. In 2014, he starred in Rebecca Zlotowski's Grand Central. The film screened at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Un Certain Regard competition. He was later cast, in Belgium, in David Lambert's Je suis á toi (All Yours, 2014), a role which landed him an award at the Karlovy Vary Festival. In 2017 he returned to the silver screen in France, starring in Albert Dupontel's Au revoir là-haut (See You Up There) and Robin Campillo's 120 battements par minute (120 Beats per Minute, 2017 Cannes Grand Prix), in which he played the role of Sean, a charismatic member of Act Up-Paris in the early 90s. The role won him the César for Most Promising Actor in 2018.
