Born Rogelio Armando Nevares Guajardo in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico on July 5th 1968. His latest credits as actor (billed as Roger Nevares) include the key supporting role of gluttonous dipsomaniac Padre Galvan in the Mexico/Spain/France co-production _Crimen del Padre Amaro, El (2002)_, a film directed by Carlos Carrera, a scene-stealing bit in Coronado, an Indy film produced by Oscar winning effects specialist Volker Engel, and corrupt Mayor Enrique Sanchez in the USA produced thriller _Black Fire (2002)_; for Television, he made several appearances in the Argos/Telemundo Soap Opera "Cara o cruz" (2002), where he also worked as Acting Coach, and the Televisa English-language soap "The Guilt" (1996), starring George Hamilton; all of these projects were produced for the American market. Having already numerous commercial credits, his cherubic face and rotund figures are now associated with name brands such as Home Mart, Nissan, Bital Bank, and Mike's Hard Lemonades. With already extensive experience in amateur theatricals during Elementary and High School, at the American Institute of Monterrey and Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, respectively, and a year of studies at the Facultad de Artes Escénicas de la Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, at eighteen he was already Head of Producciones Nevarez and in complete charge of production of the Mexican premieres of Agatha Christie's ALIBI and Colin Higgins' 'Harold & Maude'; besides fulfilling his duties as producer, he played Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot in the former show and suicidal Harold Chasen in the latter. After three years of acting and producing in Monterrey, he traveled to Russia in order to further his studies as an Actor. There he was accepted at All-Russia State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK), whose Acting Department directs to this day Professor Aleksei Vladimirovich Batalov, and graduated from the MFA program from the Acting Department with a straight 10 average and Red Diploma of Excellence. There he also studied a post-graduate course in Acting Pedagogy, and has also recently studied a post-graduate course, taught by the Moscow Art Theatre School-Studio's Rector Anatoly Smeliansky, at Harvard University. As to his former teachers, literally born and raised in the Moscow Art Theatre, 'Aleksei Batalov' is better known to western audiences for having acted in international award winning Russian film Moskva slezam ne verity (1979)The Cranes are Flying (1957) and _Dama s sobackkoj (1960)_. His workshop (Masterskaya) Master teacher in Moscow was the late Anatoli Romashin. Romashin's most famous role was Tsar Nicholas in the Russian version of the Rasputin story, 'Agoniya'. However, whom he really owes all that he knows about the acting profession is to the Masterskaya's Chief Pedagogue Yuri Borisovich Iliashevsky, another Moscow Art Theatre School-Studio graduate. To this day a practically unknown figure, his years of research, directing in Moscow and provincial theatres and teaching for many years in the mentioned Film Institute, the Moscow Art Theatre School-Studio and the State Circus School, the latter two where he graduated from, had helped Ilyashevsky develop the clearest and most common-sensical systematization of what Russia has contributed to acting pedagogy in its hundred or so years of existence. Stubborn uncompromisingness condemning him to anonymity, Yuri Borisovich has, nevertheless, always been held in the highest professional esteem by artists with whom he has collaborated with as a teacher, like 'Victor Stanitsyn', star of the original Moscow Art Theatre troupe and Andrei Tarkhanov of the famous Moskvin-Tarkhanov dynasty of actors, and also by famous film and theatre performers whom he has helped train, like Yevgeni Kindinov (Moscow Art Theatre), 'Nikolai Karachentsov' (Lenkom Theatre) and 'Avangarde Leontyev' (Sovremmenik Theatre), head of Acting at the Moscow Art Theatre School-Studio. Yuri Borisovich was co-founder of the Novii Dramaticheskii Theatre and the Escuela Rusa de Actuacion en Mexico where for two years worked as its Principal. Mr. Ilyashevsky's productions in the schools where he taught were always praised for being great ensemble works and for the high level in technical skill of individual performers. Rogelio Armando was one such performer. He held a good reputation as an actor in his Institute thanks to having played Salieri in Mozart And Salieri and Leporello in The Stone Guest, both by Pushkin, and the title roles in Chekhov's 'Uncle Vanya' and Simon's 'Last Of The Red-Hot Lovers'. As a consequence, he was often invited to play leading parts in movie shorts and full-lengths directed by students of the Directing Department, and even to act in a Mosfilm production_V poiskakh zolotogo fallosa (1992)_ starring popular actor, director and producer 'Sergei Gazarov'. As for teaching, already during his second course at the Film Institute, he started assisting Yuri Borisovich in classes he gave both in the Directing and in the Acting Department, staged scenes with third year students from the 'Mikhail Gluzsky' Masterskaya, and, after receiving his MFA degree, took a post-graduate course on Acting Pedagogy. In Russia, there are very few actors who do not work in the Theatre just as well as they do in Radio, Film and Television and none who do not also teach and who often even open a School-Studio of their own; he has faithfully continued this tradition. Returning to Mexico City from Russia in 1994, Rogelio Armando decided to open a private acting school with some of his teachers and classmates from Moscow: La Escuela Rusa de Actuacion en Mexico. They would train other actors in their specific method and keep in shape by acting in their own productions: at ERAM he directed, and played Chebutikin, in 'The Three Sisters' by Chekhov, the Old Man in 'Fool For Love' by Sheppard, and once again Salieri in Pushkin's tragedy, among other plays and roles. For five years he worked as Acting Tutor at the two most important State Drama Schools in Mexico: La Escuela Nacional de Arte Teatral del Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes en el Centro Nacional de las Artes, and the Colegio de Literatura Dramatica y Teatro de la Facultad de Filosofia y Letras en la Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. In 2001 he taught an acting course on The Russian School of Acting for Theatre, Film and Television, for ARGOS TV/Film/Theatre production company, at their recently created training center. Since January 2002 lives and works in the United Kingdom.IMDb Mini Biography By: Anonymous
