Pascal Greggory began his career in theater in 1975 by playing in François-Marie Banier’s play "Hotel du Lac". Then, he obtained his first big role in film in "The Brontë Sisters" by André Téchiné. Meeting Eric Rohmer at the end of the 70's was a career milestone for him, as he will play in several films of his films after.

In 1988, Patrice Chéreau offers him a role in Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" at the Avignon Festival. This was the beginning of a collaboration that would last until the death of the director in 2013, both in theater ("Dans la solitude des champs de cotons" by Bernard-Marie Koltès, "Phèdre" by Racine, "Rêve d'automne" by Jon Fosse) and in cinema ("La Reine Margot", "Ceux qui m'aiment prendront le train", "Gabrielle").

In theater, he also played under the direction of Luc Bondy, as well as Arthur Nauzyciel, with whom he regularly collaborates. In cinema, he has been directed by many experienced directors, including Jacques Doillon, Raul Ruiz, Andrej Zulawski, Luc Besson, or Maïwenn, Olivier Assayas and Lou Ye.

This year, he is working in the series "Irma Vep", directed by Olivier Assayas and based on his eponymous film that was released in 1996, and in the film , "One Fine Morning" directed by Mia Hansen-Love (Best European Film Awards at the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival 2022). He has also just finished shooting Maïwenn's next feature film, "Jeanne du Barry".
