José Antonio Domínguez Bandera, a.k.a. Antonio Banderas, was born in Málaga, Spain, on August 10, 1960. He is well-known in the film industry. His long and distinguished career has included a wide variety of parts in movies of different genres.

Banderas has received recognition and nominations for his work as a dynamic actor and director, starting with his 1982 performance in Pedro Almodóvar’s “Labyrinth of Passion” and continuing with his more recent successes in foreign films.


Banderas’s cinematic career started with his partnership with the esteemed Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar. The pair collaborated on several films, such as “The Skin I Live In” (2011), “Matador” (1986), “Law of Desire” (1987), “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” (1988), and “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” (1989). In addition to winning praise from critics, Banderas and Almodóvar’s creative synergy signaled the start of an incredibly successful career.

Banderas performed Almodóvar’s “Pain and Glory” in 2019 which defined his career. With a portrayal of a character that reflected elements of Almodóvar’s own life, Banderas won the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actor prize and garnered critical praise. In addition, the part led to nominations for major ceremonies such as the Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards, demonstrating the breadth and depth of Banderas’s acting abilities.

Due to his talent, Banderas was successful in Hollywood despite his nationality. In films such as “Philadelphia” (1993), “Interview with the Vampire” (1994), “Desperado” (1995), “Assassins” (1995), “Evita” (1996), and “The Mask of Zorro” (1998), he demonstrated his flexibility.

Antonio Banderas’s participation in renowned productions served to further establish his standing as a global celebrity. He brought fun and charm to animated films with his iconic appearances in the “Spy Kids” series (2001–2003) and as the voice of Puss in Boots in the “Shrek” franchise (2004–present).

After appearing in “Nine” on the US stage scene in 2003 as Guido Contini, Banderas broadened his artistic pursuits beyond the silver screen. He received a nomination for a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for this endeavor. His depiction of Pablo Picasso in the second season of “Genius” (2018) and the television film “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself” (2004) earned him nominations for Primetime Emmy Awards as well.
