Abril, Victoria


Abril, Victoria
b. 1959, Madrid
   Actress
   Abril is one of the best known actresses outside Spain. By 1989 she had already achieved national success and had made several films abroad, notably in France, for instance Beneix's La Lune dans le caniveau (The Moon in the Gutter) (1982). However, it was her starring role in Almodóvar's ¡Átame! (Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down!) which brought her international acclaim and she appeared in two more of his late films. In her roles for Almodóvar she epitomizes restrained passion, elegance and intelligence, while showing comic talent especially in later films such as Balasko's 1995 Gazon maudit (French Twist).
