Victor Boucher

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Victor Louis Armand Boucher (24 August 1877 – 21 February 1942) was a French actor.[1]


Victor Boucher was born, on 24 August 1877, in Rouen, in a house on the rue Saint-Étienne-des-Tonneliers. His parents had a café-restaurant in Bihorel. Educated at the école Bellefonds in Rouen, he began acting in youth groups.

He worked as an accountant in Rouen.[2] After his military service, he moved to Paris. He married Mariotta Claire in Neufchâtel-en-Bray in 1902.[3] He had the luck, one day, to replace a sick actor in the Théâtre des Mathurins in Paris, and made a name for himself with his comic performance based on his stammering.

In 1927, he became a director of the Théâtre de la Michodière in Paris. He was president of the Association des artistes dramatiques.[4]

He died in Ville-d'Avray, on 21 February 1942, from a heart attack.[4]
