"Actor and theatre director. He trained at the National Drama Centre in Strasbourg and with various theatre companies in Paris. He lived and worked in France for twenty years."

Born in Barcelona in 1939, he started out in amateur theatre. He won a scholarship to study at the National Drama Centre in Strasbourg (1959-1961), and later collaborated with several companies in Paris. His prolific work in French theatre led to recognition by audiences and critics. His greatest recognition, however, came in 1980 when he was accepted as a 'pensionnaire' at the Comédie Française. He returned to Spain in 1984 and founded his own company. His 'Don Quijote: fragmentos de un discurso teatral' marked the official opening of Expo 92 in Seville. After his management of the National Theatre of Catalonia, he moved to Madrid in 1997 where he produced several adaptations and created his own theatrical production company. In 2002 he staged the work 'París 1940' in Madrid, which won three Max awards. In 2004 he returned to the stage with 'La cena' and three years later played the role of the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. In 2010 he directed and acted in 'Beaumarchais'.
