Early life and career
Ceray is a Monegasque citizen and now[when?] lives in the principality. An orphan, he was adopted by a rich family in Beausoleil, a French town bordering Monaco, and he inherited from his parents at a very young age[clarification needed] and had to manage the family patrimony. His inexperience quickly led to being cheated and ruined. He has dabbled various trades, experiencing great difficulties before starting his career in hardcore pornography in the mid-1970s. Having moved to Paris to open an antique shop at the bottom of the Rue Saint-Denis, he had as a neighbor of his store one of the first erotic theaters of Paris, the Saint-Denis Theatre. Ceray was closing his shop when his neighbor was opening his. His neighbor came to dinner at a restaurant that faced their two shops. The director of the theater arrived with a defeated face and said: "The couple that performs on stage tonight, the man is angry and will not come ...". Ceray offered jokingly to replace him. "You would do that for me? If the actress is okay?"
No sooner said than done, with the agreement of the young woman, Ceray found himself on stage. He performed on stage all week until, on Saturday evening, José Bénazéraf, the producer-director of X-rated films in the 1970s, came to watch the show. At the end of that evening, Ceray was asked if he would agree to perform in Bénazéraf's next film in the role of a butler. This was the beginning of a career of more than 500 movies. He became one of the most familiar faces in French cinema X. He became a bartender in the mid-1980s and more active in the swingers club "Le 106". He then became the manager of his own swingers club, "Le Clos Palissy" (on Bernard-Palissy street behind the former Drugstore Saint-Germain), while still performing occasionally.
