French actor, who appeared in more than 60 films between 1931 and 1943 almost exclusively in small or supporting roles.
A collaborator with the Nazis during the occupation, who openly expressed fascist attitudes, he vanished while playing Jéricho in Children of Paradise (Les Enfants du Paradis), a film deliberately released in May 1945 shortly after the liberation of Europe; Le Vigan was replaced by Pierre Renoir. Sentenced to forced labour for ten years in 1946, he absconded to Spain, and then Argentina, dying there on 12 October 1972 in Tandil.
