Jean-Paul Belmondo, who was “French Legionnaire” in “Casino Royale” (1967) has passed away.

Jean-Paul Belmondo was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Seine, now Hauts-de-Seine, on 9 April 1933. Belmondo’s father, Paul Belmondo, was a Pied-Noir sculptor who was born in Algeria of Italian descent, whose parents were of Sicilian and Piedmontese origin. As a boy he was more interested in sport than school, developing a particular interest in boxing and soccer.

Belmondo died on 6 September 2021 at his home in Paris, France after a period of ill health, at the age of 88.

Sharing in sorrow with love and friendship. Our condolences.
