This multi-talented performer is the grandson of Charlie Chaplin and the great-grandson of the playwright Eugene O'Neill. More to the point, he's the son of Victoria Chaplin and Jean-Baptiste Thierrée, whose Le Cirque Bonjour and, later, Le Cirque Imaginaire, are considered part of the vanguard of the "contemporary" circus.Thierrée, 38, is "a huge star in Europe. He's phenomenal," says Wall. "He does everything from trapeze and mime to bicycle tricks and acrobatics. His shows are diverse and super poetic, and visually stunning." Thierrée's latest show, "Tabac Rouge," will soon premiere in London.
