Mini Bio (1)

Eloy Azorín was born on February 19, 1977, in Madrid. He is the humourist Eloy Arenas's son. Thanks to him, he knows the show business from the inside out. His first appearance in cinema was as the main character of Como un relámpago (1996) where he shared credits with Santiago Ramos and Assumpta Serna, directed by Miguel Hermoso. This was the confirmation that he didn't want to do anything but act. He joined the school of Dramatic Art, auditioning with a monologue written by his father. Later on, in 1998, he appeared in the film Atómica (1998) written and directed by Alfonso Albacete and David Menkes, where he interpreted a small role. But he became really well-known with the multi-awarded All About My Mother (1999), of Pedro Almodóvar, starring as Cecilia Roth's son. He ignored during the ten days of shooting that All About My Mother (1999) would turn the world, monopolizing the attention of all media and the best prizes in the film industry. The surprise came with the Oscar. Since then, his work has multiplied. Cuba (2002), Kisses for Everyone (2000), What You Never Knew (2000) and Mad Love (2001) (still in production) are the titles that take his name in 2000. It is Kisses for Everyone (2000) his last great success. Next to Emma Suárez, he stars as a student that discovers the mysteries of love and sex in a grey and multicolored Spain in the 1960s. These lines only describe the beginning of a promising career.
