Introducing “Calls”

Introducing “Calls”

Gaspard is going to be part of a TV show: “Calls” by Canal+.

It seems like we can expect a very unique project since the series will purely consist of voice-overs: recordings that tell the story of tragic events.

The material sounds quite dark but also very interesting and is going to be presented by an impressive cast:

Teaser for “Ordalie”

Have you ever seen the short film “Mes Amours Decomposé(e)s” with Gaspard as a dead body? The director of said film (Sacha Barbin) worked with Gaspard again for another short called “Ordalie”.

Here is a teaser:

I’ve also added 2 stills to the gallery:

Gaspard on TV

The Franco-German TV Network ARTE is going to produce a mini series (4 x 52 minutes) including Gaspard. Depending on which sources you want to believe, the title is either “Il était une deuxième fois” or “Il était une seconde fois.”

Guillaume Nicloux has been chosen to direct the show that you’ll be able to watch in 2018. I’ll keep you informed!

Back to 1789: “Un peuple et son roi”

Gaspard is going to be in director Pierre Schoeller’s next film “Un peuple et son roi” which is set to be released in 2018. The cast also includes Louis Garrel, Laurent Lafitte, Adèle Haenel, and Olivier Gourmet.

CINEUROPA – The storyline of the movie, written by the director himself, begins in 1789. The people have started revolting. We’d better listen to them, as they have things to say. Un peuple et son roi crosses the destinies of the men and women of the population, and those of historical figures. Their meeting place is the newly founded National Assembly. At the heart of the story lie the fate of the king and the birth of the French Republic… 

The French Revolution + period costumes + Gaspard… I don’t know about you guys, but I am VERY excited about this!

Prix Iris

Some of you might have noticed that Gaspard Ulliel Daily was offline for a short while… which is one of the reasons why I am a little late in sharing the following news, sorry for that!

“Juste la fin du monde” was the big winner of the Gala Québec Cinéma that took place last Sunday, June 4. The film received 5 awards out of 12 nominations:

  • Best Film
  • Best Director: Xavier Dolan
  • Best Actress: Nathalie Baye
  • Best Actor: Gaspard Ulliel
  • Best Supporting Actress: Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard
  • Best Casting: Xavier Dolan

Gaspard did not attend the event and was unfortunately not lucky enough to win the best actor award. However, 5 prizes are still a huge success for this film and everyone involved. Congratulations!

Gallery Update: Monsieur de Chanel

Gaspard has been interviewed for the Russian paper Kommersant in February. The scan that I added to the gallery doesn’t show the complete interview, but you can read the rest of it here.

The Russian version of L’Officiel Hommes has also featured Gaspard as the face of Chanel’s new watch in their March issue.

On top of that, I was able to feed the gallery with more photos from Gaspard’s Monsieur de Chanel shooting that are definitively worth checking out. You should also take a second look at the pictures you might already know because I replaced a couple of them with HQs!

Introducing “Les confins du monde”

Gaspard and Gérard Depardieu are going to star in “Les confins du monde” (To The Ends Of The Earth), directed by Guillaume Nicloux.

The plot focuses on the First Indochina War. Gaspard plays Robert, a French soldier whose beliefs take a sharp turn when he falls in love with Maï, a Vietnamese woman (Lang Khê Tran).

The film will be released in France by Ad Vitam, but there’s hope for a bigger distribution! Today, Screendaily reported that the drama is going to be presented in Vietnam by Blue Lantern Entertainment and has been sold to China’s DMG Entertainment as well.

I added a teaser poster and a film still to the gallery:


  • Film, TV, and Stage Productions → Film Productions → Les confins du monde (2018) → Posters
  • Film, TV, and Stage Productions → Film Productions → Les confins du monde (2018) → Stills

If you are interested in the project, you can find photos from behind the scenes on the Instagram accounts of some cast members like Lang Khê TranGuillaume Gouix, and Clément Guény.

“Gaspard Ulliel Takes His Own Time”

“Gaspard Ulliel Takes His Own Time”

Earlier this month, Debonair Magazine released an interview with Gaspard to introduce him as the ambassador for the “Monsieur de Chanel” watch.

DEBONAIR – Gaspard Ulliel just won the award of his life — onscreen, he’s just added the César to his mantle piece; off-screen, he’s the face of the first Monsieur de Chanel watch

He’s a casting director’s dream. Tall, muscular, handsome, boasting boyishly good looks, Gaspard Ulliel had his pick of roles as lead protagonist in romantic comedies. Luckily his highly expressive, intelligent and curious nature saw him turn down many of them, throwing things wide open for the Frenchman.

He had a modest start, aged 12, in made-for-TV movies in France and two decades later, Ulliel has built the sort of CV not even the most intuitive critic could have predicted, least of all the actor himself. Now, 32, he has already worked with Gus Van Sant (Paris, Je t’aime), taken on Anthony Hopkins’ career-defining role as Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal Rising), and brought fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent to life in Bertrand Bonello’s biopic Saint Laurent.

Maybe it’s his strong physique, which, when complimented, reveals a dimple that dents his left cheek, or maybe it’s the Monsieur de Chanel watch on his thick wrist, the maison’s first watch for men, but hearts race when Ulliel enters a room.

He undoes the watch to show off the underside and it’s clear — brand ambassador or not, Ulliel has a passion for much more than acting. It’s transparent and we can see the mechanism. “It’s like a beating heart, don’t you think?” he asks.
