Magnetic, extraordinary, fragile, these are the words most people have used to describe French-Israeli actor Tom Mercier
, after his overwhelming debut in the semi-autographic film Synonymes
by director Nadav Lapid, which was not only a box office success but it has made him a force to be reckoned with in the European film industry. However, Tom Mercier is not only dedicated to art, but his own life is also art and each role, each leap into the void, supposes a deep journey of introspection where he discovers new facets of his characters and of himself. It doesn't matter if he plays a young man who denies his past or an army officer tempted by youth, like in HBO's We Are Who We Are
, Tom Mercier's own role in life will always be much more interesting.
