Manuel Sinor

Manuel Sinor is a Congo-born actor based in Paris, a French native and naturalized Canadian, member of Canada’s three actor unions.

In FILM, he has worked for directors of international repute (Bryan Singer, Luc Besson, Andreï Smirnov) and opposite prominent Francophone actors (Gilles Lellouche, Valérie Lemercier, Paul Ahmarani). For TELEVISION, he started under the direction of multiple Emmy® Award winner Michael Jorgensen, was later invited as a jury member for the Canadian Screen Awards and acted at the heart of the YouTube Originals series Les Emmerdeurs, which was nominated at France’s press awards. In the THEATRE, his lead role career took him from the Francophone world première of Einstein’s Gift, a play crowned by Canada’s Governor-General Award, to the success of Résistantes, which toured across France, as far as the Réunion Island, upon entering the Top 10 of the Club de la Presse of the Off Avignon, the world’s second largest theatre festival. All this in eleven years.

An actor trained in Montréal, Sinor draws his range from a past as a French Navy sailor in Djibouti, IBM executive in Ireland and lecturer at the University of Alberta–from which he holds a Ph.D. in linguistics. Today his path as an actor finds an extension in a portfolio as a singer-songwriter, credited with a jazz-style E.P.
