Rey, Fernando


Rey, Fernando
b. 1917, Corunna; d. 1994, Madrid
   Actor
   Son of a general who fought on the Republican side in the Civil War, Fernando Casado Arambillet adopted the pseudonym Fernando Rey, the name by which he became known throughout the world as a highly talented and successful film actor—and known not only by name. The beard he wore for his role in Buñuel's Viridiana (1961) became an equally permanent part of his image. As well as starring in other Buñuel films, Tristana (1969), The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) and That Obscure Object of Desire (1977), he worked with major international directors in the USA, UK, Italy, France and Germany in such films as Orson Welles" Chimes at Midnight (1965) and Friedkin's French Connection (1971). But he never abandoned Spanish film, acting with characteristic subtlety in films produced by directors such Drove, Regueiro, Camus, García Sánchez and Armiñán. His last roles were as Don Quijote in the television series directed by Gutiérrez Aragon and as the protagonist in Armiñán's Al otro lado del túnel (At the Other End of the Tunnel) and Regueiro's Madregilda.
