Yves Jacques career has led him from his native Quebec City to Montreal and on to
Paris where he currently performs on stage and screen.
On stage, he has been touring worldwide for almost twenty years with two Robert Lepage plays, The Far Side of the Moon (from 2001) and The Andersen Project (from 2007). Most recently he has worked with Mathieu Quesnel, an up and coming Montreal director.
He has done film work with French Canadian director Denis Arcand and has appeared in seven films of French director Claude Miller.
His work with Lepage led Luc Bondy, the late Director of the Odéon Théâtre de l’Europe in Paris, to offer him a role alongside Isabelle Huppert in Marivaux’s Les Fausses Confidences (False Acquaintances). A film inspired by the play was also produced for ARTE with the same director and cast. He has appeared in many other films including Grace of Monaco and Martin Scorsese’s Aviator. You can also see Yves Jacques in a Netflix production called Mythomaniac.
Jacques was appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2001, and he is an Officer of the Order of Canada since 2009 for his achievements as an actor in theatre, television and film, in Canada and abroad.
