This charismatic actor who covered a trajectory from drama to comedy, often delighted us with his brilliant performances, some perfectly hateful villain, others with his sympathetic and occurring guajiros, always gave us a masterclass of greatness and simplicity. He was born in Havana in January 1923. The first artistic demonstration he leaned toward was painting, so he enrolled, when he was 17, at the accompanying school of San Alejandro on his night course.
