About Javier Bardem (1969 – )

Spanish actor, Javier Bardem, was born (March 1, 1969) in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain, into a family of film makers and actors, with a long history of being involved with Spanish Cinema. Being the son of Carlos Encinas and actress Pilar Bardem, he and his brother and sister were encouraged to become involved in the proud tradition of performance in this art of drama.

At the tender age of 6 and a half, Javier was in his first film, El Pícaro. Throughout his childhood, he was in several Spanish TV shows. As a teen, he turned to painting. When Javier realized that he wasn't good enough to excel to the level of family excellence, he developed his soccer skills and played for the underage Spanish National Rugby Team. However, acting was in his blood, so he eventually got drawn into the craft of acting once again, at the age of twenty.

Starting with THE AGES OF LULU, Javier had a successful run of 12 Spanish films, giving wonderful performances appreciated by Spanish critics and audiences alike.  His international breakthrough performance was his role in BEFORE NIGHT FALLS, and he has been on a roll since then, playing a variety of characters, which shows the depth of his talent and versatility.  Javier has done so as to not be type-cast as manly man eye-candy for swooning women.

He has worked hard in learning better English, as he is finding more and more meaty roles in English language films being offered to him.
