Roger Hanin (20 October 1925 – 11 February 2015) was a French actor and film director, best known for playing the title role in the 1989–2006 TV police drama, Navarro.


Roger Hanin was born in 1925 in Algiers, Algeria[2][3] as Roger Lévy to Jewish parents.[4] His brother-in-law was François Mitterrand (the late former President of France), whose wife, the late Danielle, was the sister of Hanin's wife, Christine Gouze-Rénal.

With Claude Chabrol, Hanin co-wrote the scripts for a pair of spy films in the mid-1960s. Chabrol directed Code Name: Tiger (1964) and Our Agent Tiger (1965), both featuring Hanin in the starring role of secret agent Le Tigre.

Awards and honours

His 1985 film, Hell Train, was entered into the 14th Moscow International Film Festival where it won a Special Prize.[5][6]

In September 2000 he received the "Achir medal", the highest decoration from Algeria. He said: "I always refused decorations. This is the first time that I agree, but it's also the last because I want it to be unique. "[3][7][8]
