Benjamin
Lavernhe

pensionnaire

After earning a Bachelor degree in Media and Communication and attending evening courses at the École Florent, Benjamin Lavernhe joined the « Classe libre » (free class) and played under the direction of Jean-Pierre Garnier, Loïc Corbery, Paul Desveaux and Magali Léris.

In 2008, he was admitted to the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique (National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts) of Paris, where Mario Gonzalez, Yann Joël Collin, Dominique Valadié, Alain Françon and Olivier Py supervised and directed his work. In 2011, he would reunite with Py when he cast him for the role of Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet.
In 2008, he appeared in La Cagnotte and, in 2009, in Les Méchantes, two television movies directed by Philippe Monnier. He was seen as well in Radiostars, a movie by Romain Lévy and in Going Away (Un beau dimanche) by Nicole Garcia.

On October 1, 2012, Benjamin Lavernhe became a pensionnaire of the Comédie-Française and set off in the role of Lycante in Corneille’s La Place Royale directed by Anne-Laure Liégeois. Afterwards, he was cast for the role of Oloferno Vitellozzo in Hugo’s Lucrezia Borgia directed by Denis Podalydès, of Clitandre in Molière’s The Misanthrope directed by Clément Hervieu-Léger, of Flute in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Muriel Mayette-Holtz, of Tognino in Goldoni’s The Villeggiatura Trilogy under the direction of Alain Françon and of Marcellus, Reynaldo, Third Actor, an Officer, a Messenger, Osric and Second Gravedigger in Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Hamlet directed by Dan Jemmett.

He played Jean’s part in Feydeau’s Un fil à la patte (Cat Among The Pigeons) directed by Jérôme Deschamps. He also performed the role of Vladimir Karlovitch Rode in Chekhov’s The Three Sisters directed by Alain Françon, of Diomedes in Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida directed by Jean-Yves Ruf, of Hippolyte, Son of Thésée and Antiope, in Racine’s Phèdre under the direction of Michael Marmarinos, and of Cléante in Molière’s The Imaginary Invalid directed by Claude Stratz.
