Christian Crahay is an actor from Liège who has appeared in the credits of some sixty films and in the cast of over 130 plays. He has also directed, danced in shows by Michèle-Anne de Mey and taught.
He has now turned his attention to writing, with two books published by Les oiseaux de nuit.

"L'endroit défriché par le fou - Carnets d'une Côte d'Or" also an autobiographical account, recounting his memories of the Sclessin district where he was born and where he has been living again for the last ten years, at different times and through several members of his family.
Christian Crahay will be back on stage next season in Yves Beaunesne's "Andromaque", opening the season at the Théâtre de Liège. He will also be seen in Julie Mossay's Juke Box Opéra at the PBA in Charleroi.
