Miguel Ángel Silvestre, the laid-back womanizer who is the actor of the moment in Spain
The Spaniard has already achieved success outside the country, but nowadays he stands out from his homeland.
The new Netflix series “Sky Rojo” recently arrived, but the creators have already planned a second season that will have eight more episodes. Following the spirit of persecution that directed the series, Moises, the character of Miguel Ángel Silvestre, was buried under the doubts that remained open about the future of “Sky Rojo”.
We have to wait to know what will happen and if there is more Moses to discover. However, next summer we will finally be able to know what the actor did for Lisbon when the fifth season of “La Casa de Papel” was filmed. If you have not memorized the name of Miguel Ángel Silvestre at 38, this is a good time to do so. The relaxed-looking heartbreaker is becoming more and more common on screens.
Before arriving here, the actor was on the verge of a tennis career, showing that he is comfortable on screen and doing all sorts of scenes and not by chance is one of the most sought after men in Spain with a romantic list that has entertained the pink press of the new brothers.
After the first roles on the small and big screen, the series “Sin tetas no hay paraíso” (2008), which was successful in Spain, paid further attention to the actor. In the years that followed, Miguel stood out more and more. He had the opportunity to work with Pedro Almodóvar, Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas in “Os Amantes Passageiros” (2013).
Perhaps the company of the most successful Spanish trio in Hollywood was an inspiration. In the years that followed, the actor would spend more and more time traveling. He went through “Narcos” and was then one of the eight interconnected protagonists of “Sense8”, from the idea of Wachowski.
In “Sense8” the actor was Lito, a heartbreaker who became famous with a secret: the man who melted the hearts of fans was gay. With her dramatic responses, the character was one of the most intriguing in the series. You would expect us to see him further and further from home. But it didn’t go that way.
“I wanted to be closer to the family,” he said in 2019 to “El Pais”. The actor has no children yet, but he is the “uncle Migué” for his nephews and realized that he could pursue his career in Spain. “Now being close to my family is one of my priorities and I have been fortunate enough to get several jobs in Spain,” he said. “One of the things you realize when you travel is what you left behind”.
Back in Spain, the actor accompanied this high-speed train, which has been the Spanish fiction of recent years. Spain is increasingly an international player, with projects such as “La Casa de Papel”, “30 Moedas” or the latest “Sky Rojo” that are attracting attention. And yes, the actor entered the three series and always with very different roles.
This success caught the inevitable attention of the paparazzi. In the same interview, the actor said he was surprised when he first found one outside of his home. Over time, he took on the practical side: “I don’t want to negatively connote something that’s part of the dream of being an actor. I like to think it’s a consequence of my work. “
The relationship to fame, he emphasizes, is established with “calm”. “I don’t ask, I’ll let myself go. I am even grateful to anyone who is interested. And he is genuinely grateful because I am aware that without this support I would not be able to find a job. “
Cinema and television are his dream, but the actor is increasingly sought after as a model. On his Instagram, on which he has more than 3.5 million followers (the result of “Sense 8” and one of the novelties of the fifth season of “La Casa de Papel”), one of his latest photos shows the session for which he is did the cover of “GQ”.
Interestingly, the dream of being an actor has long been in the background. In his youth, Miguel worked to become a professional tennis player. He played well in a country with a tradition of champions like Rafael Nadal.
Over the years, some media outlets reported that it was an injury that kept him away from the courts. But not. “It wasn’t an injury. I realized I wasn’t going to make it. I was 18 and I said to my father, “I’m not going to live up to expectations, Daddy.” And my father said to me: “No problem, go home, but you have to study, my son.” He did it.
He went to Madrid alone to graduate. His first roles were even in the theater, but it was the screen that made him famous. A romantic journey began that continues to stir the neighboring pink press.
One of his first known passions turned out to be an inspiration for his acting career, he said. It is the actress Belén López (“White Lines”). Others followed, like actress Blanca Suárez, with whom she dated between 2011 and 2015, and actress Albania Sagarra.
In January last year, her relationship with model Patricia Guirado ended. In September last year there was talk of a new passion. Current friend Claudia Ruíz Montoya, 24, who works in the and communications department for Agatha Ruíz de la Prada, was the latest name to join a growing list of famous accomplishments.
In interviews, the heartbreaker doesn’t usually address his romantic side. His focus at this point remains his career and, as can easily be seen, it continues in pomp. One of the reasons is the will of the actor who shows both a touch of humor in his characters and a bad face who films both romantic scenes with actors and actresses and intense action scenes while facing the noise in prison in the prison role naked of a convict.
While Moises says goodbye (for now?), We wait in “Sky Rojo” for the novelty of the actor’s arrival in the cast of “La Casa de Papel” to appear on the screen. Take the opportunity to upload to the gallery and miss the series with exclusive images from NiT when you shoot the actor with Tokyo in Lisbon.
