Born in Lons-le-Saunier, Jura, France to legendary French actor-comedian/director/writer Jean-François Stévenin, Robinson has impressed critics and audiences around the world as one of Frances most versatile actors of the new generation. Shy and soft spoken Robinson comes from a family of performers where both his siblings, older brother Sagamore Stévenin and younger sister Salomé Stévenin are also actors. Robinson started acting at the tender age of 5 in his fathers second feature Double messieurs (1986). Then followed many roles in TV movies and plays and small supporting roles in films like Lhydrolution (1989) and La révolte des enfants (1992) for which he got his first nomination and award for Best Actor at the Paris Film Festival at just the age of 10, this being a hint at further great things to come from this gifted actor. The young actor then took on a series of selective television roles shunning down most movie offers to "grow" as an actor. The young actor then took on two very delicate roles, that of the conniving sly Laurent in In schlechter Gesellschaft (1999) as a boy who obliges his girlfriend with a prostituer which earned him his first César of the Best Male hope in 2000 and that as Bo a shy, young transvestite in Francis Girods Mauvais genres (2001) which earned him second successive César Award - and this time winning - for Best Male Hope. Possessing a chameleon-like ability to portray a range of characters, Robinson has firmly established himself as one of Frances most gifted actors. This was followed by collaborating with his father again for Mischka (2002), then having a very small supporting role in Deux (2002) as a young stranger on a bike who charms Isabelle Huppert. He was then seen in a scene-stealing performance in Sein Bruder (2003). Robinson takes on selective, picky roles regardless of how big or small the role is. He was then seen in Claude Millers La petite Lili (2003) where he met and bonded with co-star Ludivine Sagnier. He can next be seen in Der Oberst und ich (2006) as Guy Rossi an officer lawyer confronted with the reality of torture during the War of Algeria, a first film written and produced by Costa-Gavras. Then in the highly controversial Transe (2006), followed by the eagerly awaited Cest beau une ville la nuit (2006) and Actrices - Oder der Traum aus der Nacht davor (2007).
