How many French people do you think you could name in five minutes?

Freeform thread. No polls. Chat away.

Gérard Depardieu

There’s one to start

I think somewhere between 20 and 30, but most of them would be footballers and it would probably be a struggle after 5.

Footballers would get me somewhere near triple figures I reckon but if I wasn’t allowed footballers I reckon I’d max out at around 12

  2. Emanuel Macron
  3. Hercule Poirot

Vincent Cassel

there’s another

He isn’t real but he’s still French, right?

Thirty to forty I reckon, mostly footballers, a few actors and musicians.

He is Belgian I’m afraid
