José Luis García-Pérez – English

This is me

01

I was born in Seville in 1972 and trained as an actor at the Instituto del Teatro de Sevilla.
Although my life has been devoted mainly to acting, for television, film and the theatre, I am passionate about History. I love “devouring” books and travelling.
I am a great consumer of the press and I like to properly check every bit of information. There is no doubt in my mind that had I not been an actor, I would have ended up in the world of archaeology or journalism.

And not just my face has been out there. I have been the voice on many radio programmes, commercials, dozens of podcasts, and been a voice actor as well.

A few examples:

– I was Big Blue Cat, in the short Blue&Malone that won a Goya Award

– Perhaps you heard my voice in this Apple commercial.

– Los santos inocentes, the radio version done by Spanish National Radio as one of their Fiction In Sound productions, where my voice was that of local cacique, Ivan. Here you can listen to every chapter of that production.

– I presented a programme on Canal Sur Radio: DIGO DIGO Noticias.

– I’ve always been one of the key voices on every Christmas Story Special of Cadena Ser Radio, and in recent years on the Onda Cero Radio Christmas Story Special as well.

 

I was “Man Friday” (script, directing and production) for the short film )PARENTHESIS(:
