Character actor, Gr?goire Aslan, was born Krikor Aslanian on Mar 28, 1908 in unknown, Switzerland. Aslan died at the age of 73 on Jan 8, 1982 in Cornwall, England .


Born in Istanbul, Aslan began his career at 18 as a vocalist and drummer with a dance band in Paris. He also did vaudeville and cabaret work and a stint as a comedian before beginning to turn to acting. In post-war years, his thick Gallic accent and double-takes became a familiar part of the film scene in British studios and he tackled both comic and dramatic roles. Billed as Coco Aslan throughout the earlier part of his career, a nickname he gradually discarded after the 1950s. Died from a heart attack.
