Quivrin studied film and broadcasting at Hector Berlioz college in Vincennes, before obtaining his Baccalaureat in literature and taking a course in film studies at Nanterre University However, he soon gave up his studies in favour of launching his professional career He spent several months at the 'Ecole des Enfants Terribles' drama school and took some further education courses In spite of this, he always considered himself as having been self-taught


Quivrin's film debut came at a young age, when he played the Duke of Anjou, one of the main characters, in Roger Planchon's Louis, enfant roi 1992 The film was selected for the 1993 Cannes Festival, where Quivrin was introduced to his first agent He appeared in several costume dramas, including Lautrec by Roger Planchon and Daniel Vigne's L'enfant des lumières in 2002, opposite Nathalie Baye He also played the Count of Nansac in Jacquou le crocant, a film by Laurent Boutonnat, set in the nineteenth century In 2007 he played the young Louis IX in Jean de la fontaine, le defi

Quivrin made his first television appearance as Babar in Les compagnons de l'aventure: Lola et les sardines, which featured a group of children on holiday in the 1990s

In 2001 he gained a certain notoriety in the eyes of the French public, playing the title role in Rastignac ou les ambitieux, Alain Tasma's TV adaptation of the novel by Honoré de Balzac Quivrin's performance was highly acclaimed and the newspapers were full of praise Le Figaro called him “flamboyant” while Le Monde found him “extremely seductive” He consequently received the award for Best Actor at the Television film festival in Luchon

In 2006, Quivrin wrote and directed a short film entitled Acteur, which was intended to be both anecdotal and representative of the life of an actor The film is centred on a conversation between a female director and an auditioning actor and, according to Quivrin, deals with “the clear separation you have to make between your personal and professional lives” The character of the director, played by Nathalie Baye, was inspired by Catherine Breillat, whom he had met at several auditions
