BIOGRAPHY –

Michel Duran is a French actor, director and film producer.

Born in Saint-Etienne, France he lived his childhood between the southeast part of France and La Rochelle, on the west coast. From the age of four, through doors opened initially by his mother who was a physical education teacher, he was involved in sports--first as a pole-vault athlete at the national championship level, then as a coach of the national backcountry ski team and finally, as a technical marketing agent for high performance sports equipment. At one point, he crossed the Atlantic ocean on the Whitbread racing sailboat, Pen Duick VI.

During high school and university he acquired significant stage experience in regional theatre companies, performing in modern and classical French plays. In addition, he earned a Master of Science in sport physiology and an MBA.
