He grew up in the neighbourhood of Goutte d'Or in Paris 18 arrondissement. When he was 13 years, his mother apprenticed him to the son of the barber,"Fabrice", instead of his own name "Robert". During this time he had developed an immense attention towards literature. His passion for soul music made him a regular of disco. In the year 1969, this is the place where he met Philippe Labro who offered him a role in the movie "Tout Peut Arriver". Under the guidance of Jean-Laurent Cochet, he studied acting. However, it was the movie "Le Genou De Claire" in the year 1970, in which he had been offered a shrimpy role of an adolescent, in which he collaborated with 'Eric Rohmer', made him famous. He later also wrote with Rohmer in movies like Perceval le Gallois and Les Nuits De La Pleine Lune. He also worked with other directors like Pierre Zucca, Nagisa Oshima, Claude Lelouch, Edward Molinaro and Cedric Klapisch. In 1990, he appeared in the movie "Christian Vincents La Discrete".

He is one of the well-known actors in French cinema, and also in one of his interviews confessed that he is more attached to the theatre and in a very precise manner his very own show, which is now in France and may come to New York soon. Elaine Sciolino called Fabrice Luchini as a French Actor who delicately balances comedy and drama in an Article. He has done 50 movies in which most of were a hit. He played many roles such as that of Percival. His life changing moment which brought him to this silver screen industry came when he was just a teenager and met the director 'Eric Rohmer' and offered a small role in his movie "Claire Knee". It seems that he had mastered himself in balancing the frail mixture between drama and comedy, and so the blend could be seen in his performances.
In a romantic comedy by Patrice Leconte's "Intimate Strangers" released in the year 2004 where he played the role of a very successful but desolate tax lawyer who had mistaken for a psychiatrist by an unsatisfied woman who was wanting his help. Luchini is among those French performers, who can move smoothly from stand-up comedy to films and back, but who is not well known outside France. Luchini, a fluid dancer and a singer, once mentioned that he had influenced by James Brown, who he had seen in Olympia at a concert when he was 15. He said that he want to perform in the Comedy Franchise one day. But that theatre acquires actors only with hard-boiled classical edification and vigorous sharpening. He has demonstrated his best to convince the directors to give him an opportunity. He said that he went to the Comedy Franchise because he knew that, the cinema doesn't help an actor to blossom". A performer leads a comfortable and a contended life. He told them that he was passionate about Moliere, about Corneille. He said that please be good, let me in, because I could do very well. He had rudely refused twice. He also indicated that since, the very 18 century, there had been no real intellectual in France. He dismays the veto, even as they agony him. Along with he also promises that he could sacrifice everything for his dream.
