EDUARD FERNANDEZ (Fernando) was born in Barcelona and studied mime at the
Institute del Teatre de Barcelona before starting out in the world of cabaret.
He spent four years with Spain's longest-running independent theater company,
Els Joglars, before debuting on the big screen in 1994 with a small role in
Souvenir. It was his performance in 1999 in Zapping, however, that opened doors.
In 2000, he received a Goya Award nomination for Best New Actor for Los lobos de
Washington, directed by Mariano Barroso; two years later, he won Best Actor for
his work in Fausto 5.0.
Since then, Fernandez has become one of Spain's most solid and prolific
performers with credits including Smoking Room and In the City (for which he
received his second Goya, this time as Best Supporting Actor). He continued to
collect awards and accolades for his work in such films as The Method, Biutiful,
Alatriste, Ficcion, and The Skin I Live in, his debut with Pedro Almodovar, as
well as A Gun in Each Hand, Todas las mujeres, El NiÃ±o, Happy 140, The Night
My Mother Killed My Father, Far from the Sea, and The Man with Thousand Faces,
for which he was named Best Actor at the San Sebastian Film Festival. Additional
credits include 1898. Los ultimos de Filipinas, Perfect strangers, and Mientras
dure la guerra. He has worked with a prestigious list of directors that includes
Mariano Barroso, Roger Gual, Julio D. Wallovits, Cesc Gay, Montxo Armendariz,
Alejandro G. Inarritu, Pedro Almodovar, Alex de la Iglesia, Daniel Monzon,
Alberto RodrÃguez, Asghar Farhadi, and Alejandro Amenabar.
