Sometimes fate has its own way of giving it back to you. Little did Antonio Banderas know at the age of fourteen that soccer wasn’t what he was born to do! However, a mishap that broke his foot led him towards a career that made him internationally renowned. The ‘Spanish enchantress’ Penelope Cruz danced her way to a career in film and theatre and became a hot pick for every director and production house. A child prodigy, Santiago Segura’s trysts with filmmaking started when he was merely fourteen years of age. After his first short film, he decided to make a career in the same. Segura’s big break came in 1998, when he directed his first feature film, the smashing hit Torrente, el brazo tonto de la ley. Going back to the tides of time in 1960s, the world of entertainment had a new pop culture icon in Cesar Romero. The Spanish artist and film actor was phenomenal on stage and on screen and got acclaimed for his portrayal of maniacal Joker in the 1966 television series ‘Batman’. Spanish film and theatre personalities have time and again proved their mettle on screen with their power-packed performance, creative inputs and ingenious style. They have adorned various hats like that of actors, directors, dancers, script writers, producers, art directors with élan. Check this segment and find out more about famous Spanish film and theatre personalities.
