Álex Angulo

The theatre, film and television actor Álex Angulo died in a car crash last week on 20 July while travelling through La Rioja. Álex Angulo was 61 years old.
The Biscay-born actor was a highly respected and much-loved figure in the film industry. After beginning his career as a theatre performer, a profession that he never walked away from, he rose to permanent stardom in 1995 thanks to his performance as the priest Angel Berriatúa in The Day of the Beast, by Álex de la Iglesia, for which he was nominated a Goya for Best Actor.
From the moment he made his silver-screen debut in 1981 until his untimely death in 2014, Angulo worked on over 60 feature films, and countless shorts, theatrical works and television series, such as Periodistas (1997-1999), thanks to which he found considerable fame all over Spain.
