Born in Santiago de Compostela, Luis Zahera made it to Galician homes at the end of the 90’s as the legendary barman “Petróleo” from Mareas vivas. Nowadays he is widely known in television, theatre and cinema, where he played memorable secondary roles. Concursante, Celda 211 or Que dios nos perdone are some of the feature films included in his CV. However, in the last year it is worth highlighting his masterful role in Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s film El reino, which earned him a Goya for best supporting actor. The film Mientras dure la guerra, directed by Alejandro Amenábar, has yet to be released. Meanwhile, he did not stop working on successful series, such as Sin tetas no hay paraíso or the recent Vivir sin permiso.
