Christophe Lambert first caught the acting bug after participating in a school play at the age of twelve. His parents however wanted him to have a job with security and saw acting as unsafe, so to please his parents he took a job with the London Stock Exchange, but after about six months he left the L.S.E. to help a friend run a shop in Paris. He also served in the French military at his father's insistence.

His father agreed to support Christopher for two years so that Christopher could pursue his love for acting, and after some time he auditioned for and was accepted as a theater student at the famed Paris Conservatoire.

His first two films were "La Dame de Coeur" and "Legitime Violence," and then he auditioned for Hugh Hudson for the leading role as John Clayton in "Greystoke, The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes." He first read for Hudson and then did an hour of gymnastics to prove he was right for the role.

Christopher's talent did not go undiscovered and in 1985 he starred in Luc Besson's "Subway," for which he earned the French Cesar award as best actor.

During his marriage to actress Diane Lane, they starred in "Priceless Beauty" and "Knight Moves" together. In 1994, they became the proud parents of one daughter, Eleanor Jasmine Lambert.

Christopher enjoys making movies that take him away from everyday life and create something that is entertaining for people. He is attracted to roles with extremes in characters that aren't boring. Christopher portrayed the immortal Connor MacLeod in the original Highlander film released in 1984. Christopher learned his swordfighting skills in about sixteen weeks. He can't wear contact lenses, so he rehearses extra hours so that the scenes are safe.

In addition to being a talented actor, Christopher has produced several films including "Resurrection", "Nine Months", "Knight Moves", and "Gideon" to name a few. When Christopher isn't acting he also has several business ventures such as beautiful restaurants like Gitana and also Les Garrigues de Beaumard-Lambert wine.
