Christophe Guy Denis Lambert was born in Great Neck, Long Island, New York on March 29, 1957. His father was a French diplomat at the United Nations. His family left the U.S. when his father was transferred to Switzerland. At the time Chris was only two years-old so he was educated at private boarding schools in Geneva. Appearing in a play when he was 12, he went to the Paris Conservatoire where he remained for two years. After small parts in French films, beginning in 1980, he successfully competed for the title role in “Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes” (1984). The movie was popular with Tarzan buffs for basically remaining faithful to the original story. Two years later Lambert starred in “Highlander” (1986), and again in the futuristic “Highlander II” (1991) and “Highlander: The Final Dimension” (1994). Christophe has appeared in only one Euro-western “The North Star” (1996). In recent years he has become a producer while continuing to act in mostly action/adventure films. Today we celebrate Christophe Lambert’s 55th birthday.
