Christopher Lambert

"There can be only one!" Christopher Lambert will be a guest in Rotterdam. Born in Great Neck, New York (US) this French-American actor grew up in Geneva (Switzerland) and Paris (France). His father was a French diplomat at the United Nations, so the family moved to Geneva when Christopher was two years old. Lambert is mostly known for his role as Connor MacLeod in the "Highlander" franchise, starting with the first movie "Highlander in 1986. One of his trademarks is his intense gaze, he often shows in movies. This is actually a result of myopia at a young age, which causes his eyes to focus incorrectly. As a result distant objects appear blurred. Because of this he can't wear contact lenses, so when he can't wear glasses in a movie, Lambert acts virtually blind. This has led to accidents when performing stunts.
