Antonio Banderas


José Antonio Domínguez Banderas was born on August 10, 1960 in Málaga, Spain. His father, José Domínguez, is a policeman in the civil guard, and his mother Doña Ana Banderas is a teacher. He has one brother, named Francisco. Banderas didn’t plan on being an actor – he had dreams of being a professional soccer player, but a broken leg at age fourteen ended any hopes of a soccer career.

Banderas moved to Madrid to begin his acting career, where his first notable role was in the film, ¡Átame! - called Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! in the United States. Looking for a more international career, he moved to the U.S., where he was cast in the movies, The Mambo Kings (1992), and Philadelphia (1993). These were soon followed up with other well-known film hits, such as Desperado (1995), The Mask of Zorro (1998) and Spy Kids (2001). He has also done voice-over work, playing the Puss-in-Boots in the Shrek films, and the computer-animated bee in television commercials for Nasonex.

Banderas had a first wife named Ana Leza, but after they divorced he married actress Melanie Griffith in 1996. The couple has one daughter, named Stella.
