Javier Cámara

Premio Málaga - Sur

Javier Cámara from La Rioja, has been a regular in cinema, television and theatre in Spain for more than three decades. He has two Goya awards, one for best male supporting performance for Truman directed by Cesc Gay and the other one for best male lead performance for Vivir es fácil con los ojos cerrados, directed by David Trueba. At the Malaga Festival he won the Biznaga de Plata for Best Actor on two occasions: in 2003 for Torremolinos 73, by Pablo Berger, and in 2008 for Fuera de carta, directed by Nacho G. Velilla.

He received five more Goya nominations, four Actors' Union awards, two Feroz awards (the last in 2022 in the category for best comedy performer in a TV series for his role in Venga Juan). A MiM SERIES Award for best comedy actor (for the same character in Vota Juan), a CEC medal and an Espiga de Honor for an entire career, awarded by the Valladolid International Film Festival in its 65th edition in 2021. The most recent recognition was last year when he was awarded one of the most prestigious awards in the country, the Ondas 2022 Award for Best Actor.
He has worked with director Pedro Almodóvar in Hable con ella, La mala educación and Los amantes pasajeros. In 2005, he simultaneously released  La vida secreta de las palabras, by Isabel Coixet, and Malas temporadas, by Manuel Martín Cuenca and since then, his presence in cinema has been non-stop, especially with the help of Isabel Coixet, David Trueba and the director Cesc Gay.
Although there have been many films in which he has been part of in recent years, such as Ficción, Una pistola en cada mano, Sentimental (all three directed by Cesc Gay), Es por tu bien, Fe de etarras, La reina de España, El tiempo de los monstruos, Perdiendo el norte, the already mentioned, Truman and Vivir es fácil con los ojos cerrados, Javier Cámara has also managed to leave his mark on the small screen with series such as 7 vidas, ¡Ay señor, señor!, Periodistas, Lex and more recently, bringing the politician Juan Carrasco to life in Vota Juan and its sequel Vamos Juan, for Movistar+, in which he made his debut as a director, putting himself behind the cameras to direct one of its episodes. He last appearance on the small screen was during the two seasons of the series Rapa, from the Portocabo production company for which he has just finished filming its third season, in which, as well as starring again as the protagonist, he once again got behind the camera as director of one of its chapters.
He is also no stranger to theatre. His role in Realidad cannot be forgotten - the great classic by Harold Pinter at the María Guerrero theatre in Madrid. We saw him in Los farsantes last year, with a script and direction by Pablo Remón for the Centro Dramático Nacional, a director for whom he will work with again in 2024, starring in Vania x Vania for the CDN for which rehearsals will shortly commence.
In his international career, his work in productions such as Narcos, The Young Pope and The New Pope (the latter two directed by Paolo Sorrentino), and the Colombian film  El olvido que seremos, a film adaptation of the novel by Héctor Abad Faciolince of the same title, a film in which Javier once again works under the direction of Fernando Trueba and which closed the 2021 San Sebastián Festival.
