biography

I f you ask my mother, she will say 'Alvarico'; my childhood friends, 'Subi' without a doubt, or even 'Subis'. If you ask me, it's not that clear. Let's say my name is Álvaro and I'm from Pamplona.

In that city I think I was born, at some point in the 80s, when a wall fell in Berlin, when an unknown gentleman stopped in a square in China to observe in a daze a lot of tanks, and when the Game Boy was invented. OK, alright: many things happened back then, more important than me.

 

Then I grew up. But little by little, you better believe it. It was sometimes a growth spurt, sometimes even a shrinkage. I went to school, and some things happened, then to college, and some others happened. I had some experiences in between, relevant to some extent, such as taking Art classes during a decade, living in Italy, or falling in love, and I finally got to Madrid.

And I've been in Madrid for twelve years now! In this great city, although I've been developing some new curiosities like writing and directing, I work as an actor above all.

Regarding my acting education, I owe it to Laboratorio de Teatro William Layton, the international company Residui Teatro and Espacio Guindalera.

 

Moreover I've trained with the voice master Vicente Fuentes, and with Jesús Esperanza, Fabio Mangolini, Mónica Dorta and Gabriel Chamé, to name just a few.

One of my best abilities is my language skills. Beyond the fact that I'm a Spaniard, I'm a fluent speaker of English, French and Portuguese, and then Italian at a native level.

Currently, I'm learning Basque at the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas.

 

In voice work, I specialised in foreign accents, including Italian, French and American English. My voice is deep, baritone for singing, displaying a wide range of modulations.

As a matter of fact, La Manzana de Oro is now showing in Spanish theatres, but first it was presented at the BCN Film Fest. It's Jaime Chávarri's comeback to films, and I had the privilege to work on it, with a powerful role, alongside a fabulous cast: Sergi López, Marta Nieto, Adrián Lastra,...

 

Regarding theatre, I premiered at the Festival Internacional de Almagro Las bizarrías de Belisa by Lope de Vega, with the company Clásicos on the Road, which is currently on tour. I'm also a member of the cast of El enfermo imaginario directed by Jacobo Muñoz.

Besides, until a little before the lockdown in Spain, I did Noche árabe (Die arabische Nacht) by Roland Schimmelpfennig. Before that, in 2019, I performed in a Shakespeare's classic, Noche de Reyes (Twelfth Night), directed by Lidio Sánchez Caro, and in El señor de las moscas (Lord of the Flies), by Marcos Toro for the Teatro Federico García Lorca in Getafe (Madrid).

 

I also performed with the multi-awarded company Sotterraneo, in the show Dies Irae. In July '19 at The REP in Birmingham, UK, and then in November-December

in Conde Duque, Madrid.

In radio, in late 2018 I performed for the podcast by Podium Podcast and Cadena SER, Una novela criminal, written by the 2018 Alfaguara award winner Jorge Volpi.

Before that, I worked in Los intocables de Eliot Ness (The Untouchables), the first immersive theatre experience  in Spain, directed by Rubén Cano, or the short film Paradojas en el día a día de un banco de peces, by Manuel Manrique. I also participated in the spot Envidia, by Y&R Madrid, winner of two Lions in Cannes, and I directed the play La psicoloca, by the poetess Pilar González España.

And I would love to tell you that I have something cooking and that I can take it out of the oven. But I can't just yet, so I better shut up, just in case I mess everything up.
