Paul Bonifas


Paul Bonifas was a French actor, born in Paris. He is best known to English-speaking audiences for his role in Stanley Donen's 1963 film Charade, which starred Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.

During World War II, Bonifas served in the French Army and was evacuated at Dunkirk. He joined the Free French and worked for Radio Londres broadcasting to occupied France. He also formed the Théâtre Molière and, together with other French actors in London, performed in theatres and French army barracks based in Britain.

Bonifas was one of the unnamed actors — collectively credited as "The Molière Players" — who appeared in Aventure Malgache (1944), directed by Alfred Hitchcock for the Ministry of Information.
