Translated from the French article.
Laurent was born and raised in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, and was the son of a nursery nurse (his mother) and an agricultural engineer. He learned to play the piano at an early age but decided in his adolescence to pursue comedic acting.
Laurent debuted in the 1976 film À nous les petites Anglaises. He was then featured in a number of popular French films in the late 1970s and most of the 1980s. He is particularly remembered in his role in the film La Cage aux Folles as Laurent, the son of Renato Baldi (Ugo Tognazzi). He is also remembered in his role as Denis Boucher in the québécois film Les Plouffe directed by Gilles Carle. He died of an HIV-related illness on 14 November 1989 and is interred at Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule.
