Vernon Dobtcheff

Biography

Date of Birth 14 August 1934, Nimes, France Vernon Dobtcheff is a French actor of Russian origin. He attended Ascham Preparatory School in Eastbourne, Sussex, England, in the 1940's, where he won the Acting Cup. In his 2006 memoir Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, British actor Rupert Everett describes an encounter with Dobtcheff on the boat train to Paris, and reveals his extraordinary reputation as the "patron saint" of the acting profession, stating that Dobtcheff "was legendary not so much for his acting as for his magical ability to catch every first night in the country". Widely travelled and prone to pop up in the most unlikely of locales, if unable to attend an opening night, Dobtcheff will still endeavour to send the cast a card wishing the production good luck.
