Javier Bardem is the youngest member of a family of actors that has
been making films since the early days of Spanish cinema.He got his
start in the family business at age six when he appeared in his
first feature, "El Pícaro" (The Scoundrel). During his teenage
years he acted in several TV series, played rugby for theSpanish
National Team, and toured the country with an independent
theatrical group. Javier's early film role as a sexy stud in the
black comedy_Jamón, jamón (1992)_ (qv) (Ham Ham) propelled him to
instant popularity and threatened to typecast him as nothing
morethan a brawny sex symbol. Determined to avert a beefcake image,
he refused similar subsequent roles and has gone on to win acclaim
for his ability to appear almost unrecognizable from film to film.
With over 25 movies and numerous awards under his belt, it is
Javier's stirring, passionate performance as the persecuted Cuban
writer Reinaldo Arenas in _Before Night Falls (2000)_ (qv) that
will longbe remembered as his breakthrough role. He received five
Best Actor awards and a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his
portrayal of a strong-willed man who survived censorship,
imprisonment, and homosexual intolerance for the privilege to write
freely, only to commit suicide at age 47 in New York, ending a
battle with AIDS.
