ANTONIO BANDERAS gives voice to a swashbuckling Puss In Boots, who first challenges Shrek, but then becomes his friend and ally.

Banderas was recently honored with his third Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of the legendary revolutionary Pancho Villa in the HBO movie "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself.” He earned his first Golden Globe nomination for his performance as Ché in the big-screen adaptation of the musical "Evita,” opposite Madonna. His second Golden Globe nomination came for his work in the title role of "The Mask of Zorro,” with Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones. He will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel "Zorro 2,” which reunites the cast and director Martin Campbell.

In 2002, Banderas made his Broadway debut in the stage revival of "Nine,” which brought him a Tony Award nomination. He also won the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League and Theatre World Awards for his performance in the show.

Born in Malaga, Spain, Banderas studied at the School of Dramatic Art in his hometown before beginning his career on the stage in a local theatre company. In 1981, he moved to Madrid, where he became a member of the prestigious National Theatre of Spain. While still a member of the theatre ensemble, he was cast by writer/director Pedro Almodovar in 1982's "Labyrinth of Passion.” It was the first of five films Banderas would do with Almodovar, including "Matador,” "Law of Desire,” "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and "Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!”.

Banderas made his American film debut in 1992 as a young Cuban musician in "The Mambo Kings.” At the time of his casting, he spoke no English and had to learn all of his lines phonetically. He went on to earn praise in such features as "Philadelphia,” "House of the Spirits,” "Interview With the Vampire” and "Miami Rhapsody.”

In 1995, director Robert Rodriguez cast Banderas in "Desperado,” opposite Salma Hayek, which marked the actor's first starring role in an American feature. The next year, Banderas starred in Rodriguez's segment of "Four Rooms.” The two have since reunited for the smash hit family adventures "Spy Kids,” "Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams” and "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over,” as well as "Once Upon a Time in Mexico,” which was the sequel to "Desperado.”

In addition, Banderas made a cameo appearance in the acclaimed biopic "Frida,” starring Salma Hayek. His other film credits include "Imagining Argentina,” "Femme Fatale,” "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever,” "Original Sin,” "Play It to the Bone,” "The 13th Warrior,” "Assassins,” "Two Much” and "Never Talk to Strangers.”

Behind the camera, Banderas made his feature film directorial debut with "Crazy in Alabama,” starring Melanie Griffith.
