Michel Simon (9 April 1895, Geneva, Switzerland - 30 May 1975, Bry-sur-Marne, France), was a Swiss actor, noted for such films as Feu Mathias Pascal and Isn't Life a Bitch?.

He debuted in the film Feu Mathias Pascal, adapted from Pirandello, with Marcel L'Herbier as director. Nearly at the same time, he appeared in La vocation d'André Carel, directed by Jean Choux. The film used small-scale production methods, just as Nouvelle Vague would do in 1958.
