Tcheky Karyo Career

Karyo joined the National Theatre of Strasbourg, where he starred in both contemporary and classical plays. He found success in French films beginning in the 1980s, first as a character actor. He later appeared in leading roles in several notable films, such as The Bear, in which he played one of the hunters, and director Luc Besson's La Femme Nikita, in which he played the heroine's spy mentor.

He has appeared in many Hollywood movies, often portraying a French character, in the same fashion as Jean Reno. His movie credits include 1994's Nostradamus in which he plays the famous French prophet, and 1995's Bad Boys opposite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in which he plays a criminal named Fouchet. He also appeared alongside Jet Li in Kiss of the Dragon (2001) as a corrupt and violent Paris police detective. He has acted in prominent roles in major films set during wartime. Such performances include his acting as a vengeful French officer alongside Mel Gibson in The Patriot (2000), set during the American Revolutionary War, and his role as Jean de Dunois in The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc. In the DVD edition of The Patriot, Karyo overdubbed his own lines on the French-language track. He appeared in Martin Sheen's film The Way (2010) as Captain Henri.

In 2014 and 2016 Karyo appeared as Julien Baptiste in the acclaimed BBC One/Starz drama series The Missing. He has received critical praise for his performance. In April 2018, it was confirmed that Karyo would reprise his Baptiste role in a spin-off series titled Baptiste, to be written by Jack and Harry Williams. The first six-episode series began on BBC One on 17 February 2019, with a second series beginning on 18 July 2021.

In 2018, Karyo appeared as Elisha in Mary Magdalene, written by Helen Edmundson and directed by Garth Davis.

Karyo is also a musician and songwriter. In 2006 he released the album Ce lien qui nous unit (English: "The link that binds us"), and released Credo in 2013 on his 60th birthday.


Boat Story review: If Tarantino made a zombie film, you wouldn't see this much gore, writes CHRISTOPHER STEVENS, November 20, 2023
What would you do? If you were walking the dog and found a truckload of cocaine next to a couple of corpses on a deserted beach, would you ignore the bodies and steal the drugs? It's a ludicrous question. Writers Jack and Harry Williams don't intend us to take it seriously. What they're really asking is ... 'Yeah, but what if?' No other British screenwriters dare do this, testing the bounds of credibility from the opening credits and then continuing to stretch them. Boat Story (BBC1) presents us with the wildly improbable from the start, with three children peering in excitement at a severed head in a field. It's like the Just William version of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
