Actor

Born - 31 December 1934, Mexico City, Mexico

Youthfully handsome light-haired Mexican actor whose career varied wildly from working for Luis Bunuel to making bizarre exploitation films. After studies with the Actors' Studio in America (Marilyn Monroe was a classmate), he made his debut in Huellas del Pasado (1950) and first collaborated with Bunuel on Una Muja sin Amore and Daughter of Deceit the following year. Following several youth-oriented films, he worked again with Bunuel on one of his best films, The Exterminating Angel (1962). After that, his movies were a mixed bag: Santo vs the Vampire Woman (1962), Guadalajara in Summer (1965), A Bull My Flame (1968), Capolino 'Speedy' Gonzalez (1970), Jesus, Mary and Joseph (1972), Las Cabareteras (1980), Tona, Macida Virgen (1982), Duena de la Noche (1991), Detectives con Sotanas (1997), Mafia Gangs (2007) and Boy Undone (2017), his last. He died from a myocardial infarction.
