    On his return to Paris, he started performing in cabaret and in plays, on stage and on television. In 1960, with Delphine Seyrig, Rochefort appeared in a number of plays primarily by British playwrights, including Harold Pinter, James Saunders and Peter Nichols, but from 1970 he devoted himself almost entirely to films.
