For most cinéphiles outside his native France, Jean-Claude Brialy was mainly associated with the Nouvelle Vague, in which he was a principal actor. But at home he went on to become one of the most prominent figures in the arts, prolific in films, on television and in the theatre; a brilliant raconteur with the air of a boulevardier, he was also one of the few French stars to be openly gay. In 1956, Brialy acted in his first role in the short film Le coup du berger (Fool's Mate) by Jacques Rivette. By the late 1950s, he'd become one of the most prolific actors in the French nouvelle vague and a star. He appeared in films of nouvelle vague directors such as Claude Chabrol (Le Beau Serge, 1958; Les Cousins, 1959), Louis Malle (Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, 1958; Les Amants, 1958), François Truffaut (Les 400 Coups, 1959), Jean-Luc Godard, (Une femme est une femme, 1961) and Éric Rohmer (Claire's Knee, 1970).
