Antonio Banderas is a Spanish actor.

Biography

Born José Antonio Banderas in Málaga, Andalucia, he studied at the ARA Theatre School and College of Dramatic Art after initially wishing to be a footballer. After a number of successful films by Pedro Almódovar (who he would later work with again in The Skin I Live In), Banderas moved to Hollywood and became recognised for his roles in Philadelphia and as the vampire Armand in Interview With a Vampire.

Banderas later gained fame for his action-adventure roles, as the nameless protagonist of the El Mariachi Trilogy, master spy Gregorio Cortez in the Spy Kids films, and as Alejandro Murrieta, the man who would become Zorro in The Mask of Zorro. The success of this role lead to him being cast as Puss in Boots in the Shrek series. Though known in the English speaking world for light hearted action and comedy films, in Spain he has appeared in a number of serious productions, including the much acclaimed Pain and Glory.
