Since his introduction to American cinema in the highly acclaimed Mambo Kings, Antonio Banderas is irrefutably one of the leading international actors of his generation. He has received critical praise for his performances in film, television and theater, as well as behind the scenes as a feature film director. In 2005, he was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
His second directorial feature is the Spanish film El Camino De Los Ingleses (titled Summer Rain in the U.S.). A coming of age story, the film follows the first loves, lusts and obsessions of friends on vacation at the end of the 1970s. He made his directorial debut with Crazy In Alabama starring his wife Melanie Griffith.
Banderas stole the show in the 2004 blockbuster animated film Shrek 2 as the voice of “Puss in Boots.” He reprised this role in the widely anticipated sequel Shrek The Third, the ABC Christmas special Shrek The Halls, and the fourth installment of the franchise Shrek Forever After. Read more
