Early life[edit]

Christophe Guy Denis Lambert was born in Great Neck, New York, on March 29, 1957,[1] the son of Yolande Agnès Henriette (née de Caritat de Peruzzis; born 1928)[2] and Georges Lambert-Lamond (1910–2003).[3] a French diplomat at the United Nations.[1][4][5] His father was Jewish.[6] Due to his father's work, Lambert moved with his parents to Switzerland at the age of two and was raised in Geneva and went to institute Florimont the worse brother[citation needed] of institute international de Lancy until his teenage years, when the family moved to France and settled in Paris.[7]



Lambert started his career playing supporting parts in several French films such as Ciao, les mecs (1979), Le bar du téléphone (1980), Asphalte (1981), Une sale affaire (1981), Putain d'histoire d'amour (1981), Douchka (1981), Légitime violence (1982), and one episode of Cinéma 16 (1982).

Around that time, director Hugh Hudson had just finished his Academy Award-winning film Chariots of Fire (1981), and Warner Brothers was desperate to hire him to direct another film. After looking at all their available scripts he chose to do a film adaptation of novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs' iconic character Tarzan, a man who was raised by an unknown species of great apes in the jungle.[8] Wanting an unknown actor to play the part, Hudson tested many young actors. Lambert got the role partly due to his myopia, because when he took off his glasses it seemed he was always looking into the distance.[9]

Released in 1984, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes was met with great critical acclaim for both Lambert and its director.[10] The film was nominated for three Academy Awards and won a BAFTA Award, as well as a César Award amongst other nominations.[11]

That same year, he also played a lead role in a French film called Paroles et musique, opposite Catherine Deneuve, Richard Anconina and Jacques Perrin.[12]


In 1985, Lambert played the lead in Luc Besson's stylistic film Subway, about a man being hunted in the underground subways of Paris.[13][14] The film was a success at the French box office as well as critically acclaimed.[15] Lambert was awarded a César Award for Best Actor the next year.[16]

On 7 March 1986, Russell Mulcahy's Highlander premiered.[17] In the film, Lambert starred as Connor MacLeod, one of a number of immortal warriors who can only be killed by decapitation. The film became a cult hit and was an international box-office success, as well as his most famous role. The rock group Queen composed and performed the soundtrack, and Lambert also appeared as MacLeod in the music video for Queen's "Princes of the Universe".[18] Also that year, Lambert took the leading role in Marco Ferreri's I Love You.[19] The film was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and was nominated for the Silver Ribbon at the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists.[20]

Lambert played the leading role in the troubled production of The Sicilian, directed by Michael Cimino, based on the Mario Puzo book of the same name and started its American theatrical run on 23 October 1987.[21] He stars as Salvatore Giuliano, an egocentric bandit who fights the Catholic Church, the Mafia, and the landed gentry while leading a populist movement for Sicilian independence. The studios trimmed down the director's cut of the film. It was released in 1987 and was less successful than his previous pictures, receiving a lukewarm reception by critics and being only marginally profitable. However the director's cut received better reviews upon its release in France.[citation needed]

In 1988, he starred in Agnieszka Holland's To Kill a Priest, in which he played a character based on Jerzy Popiełuszko and his murder under the Polish communist regime. It was well received by critics.[22]

That year, he also played the lead in the romantic film Priceless Beauty with actress Diane Lane. They got married that year, their union lasting until 1994.[citation needed]

In 1990, he did the comedy Why Me?, co-starring Christopher Lloyd. They play burglars who get into trouble after stealing a sacred ruby from Turkey.[citation needed]

On November 1, 1991, the Highlander sequel, Highlander II: The Quickening premiered. In it Lambert reunited with director Russell Mulcahy and fellow actor Sean Connery.[23] Mulcahy did not like the screenplay and the production team was lured to shoot it in Argentina to reduce production costs; the country however was going through a financial crisis. Much of the script was not filmed and the final result is a patchwork.[24] Its poor performance was possibly a result of the bonding company's interference with the director; Mulcahy reportedly hated the final product so much he walked out of the film's world premiere after viewing its first 15 minutes. For similar reasons, Lambert threatened to walk out of the project when it was nearing fruition. However, due to contractual obligations, he did not.[citation needed]

That year he got his first producer credit in the French film Génial, mes parents divorcent by Patrick Braoudé.[25]

In 1992, he appeared in three projects. He appeared in the first episode of the television show Highlander: The Series, passing on the lead role to actor Adrian Paul. He also appeared in the French crime thriller Max et Jérémie, co-starring Philippe Noiret and Jean-Pierre Marielle.[citation needed]

On 22 January 1993, Carl Schenkel's suspense thriller Knight Moves premiered, in which Lambert was both an executive producer and the lead. Lambert plays a chess grandmaster suspected of murder.[26] On 3 September, the science fiction Stuart Gordon's Fortress premiered, where Lambert was the lead.[27] The story takes place in a dystopian future where a man and his wife are sent to a maximum-security prison because they are expecting a second child, which is against the strict one-child policy. The film was a success at the box-office. That year, he also made an uncredited cameo in the comedy Loaded Weapon 1.[28]

1994 saw the release of two collaborations with actor Mario Van Peebles. They played the side by side leads in the action film Gunmen, and Van Peebles was the main villain in Highlander III: The Sorcerer. In this third installment of the franchise, Connor MacLeod is forced to face a new, dangerous enemy, a powerful sorcerer known as Kane who wants to gain world domination. Lambert also starred in the action film Roadflower.
