Tahar Rahim, the French actor of Algerian descent, found fame with his breakout in Jacques Audiard's "A Prophet", which bagged the Grand Prize of the jury in 2009.

Melanie Laurent starred in Quentin Tarantino's Palme d'Or contender "Inglourious Basterds", while Filho recently won the Jury Prize with "Bacurau".
