Louis de Funes can rightfully be called the real “king of French comedy” of the 20th century. It was watched and loved by millions of viewers around the world. However, far fewer people knew that the son of the comedian Olivier de Funes starred in several films along with the famous father.
For the first time, the blue-eyed handsome brunette appeared in 1965 in the film Fantomas Raged. Later, Olivier starred in several more tapes. The audience was delighted with the actor with a bright appearance, and many experts predicted a great future for him on the screen.
However, Olivier himself had a completely different dream – he wanted to become a racer. This is partly why, out of fear for the life of his son, his father tried to captivate him with the world of cinema. Despite the obvious talent, Olivier did not continue his acting career.
True, he fulfilled his dream in a slightly different way, becoming an aircraft pilot.
