Nicolas Silberg

Nicolas Silberg, of his real name Gerard Fruneau, is born in January 02nd 1944, in Maine-et-Loire, France.
In 1964, he enters the Academy of Nantes and obtains the price of Excellence. Jacques Couturier, his professor, encourages him to enter L’Ecole Superieur Nationale d’Art Dramatique of Paris. He is admitted in October, 1967 and receives the Second Price at his final exams. Quickly after in 1970, this very talented comedian enters the Comedie Francaise.

He is a natural tragedian and changes role with virtuose under the direction of various directors such as Jean Anouilh, Franco Zefirelli, Michel Vitold, Jean Poiret, Roger Planchon, Jacques Las¬sale, Youssef Chahine, Roger Blin, alterning both romantic and funny characters.
He plays Molière, Racine, Corneille, Hugo, Shakespeare and the Russian authors where he excels. His magnificient interpretation of Rogogine in L’Idiot de Dostoïevski, values him to become “Societaire” at the Comedie Francaise under Pierre Dux, on 1st January 1976. He is the 459e “Societaire” since Molière. He also played in more than 100 movies at the cinema and 60 fictions for television.
Nicolas was always attracted by painting and he devotes his free time painting watercolor base technique. He also became a a wise and knowledgeable collector over the years. Born from his love-passion for painting and released from any professional constraint, Nicolas is now a full time painter. His latest work exhibited at Boesch Museum in France last summer 2015 is a success that we are now happy to present in Asia.
