LUCIEN GERMAIN GUITRY (1860-), French actor, was born in Paris. He became prominent on the French stage at the Porte Saint-Martin theatre in 1900, and the Varietes in 1901, and then became a member of the Comedic Frangaise, but he resigned very soon in order to become director of the Renaissance, where he was principally associated with the actress Marthe Brandes, who had also left the Comedie. Here he established his reputation, in a number of plays, as the greatest contemporary French actor in the drama of modern reality.
