Actor Carlos Moreno passes away aged 75
Reputed actor and director Carlos Moreno, whose career in film, theatre and television spanned decades, died yesterday in Buenos Aires, aged 75.
Born in August, 1938, in La Plata, Moreno studied with great masters Duch as Carlos Gandolfo, Augusto Fernández, Agustín Alezzo and Hedy Crilla. Throughout his decades-long career, he perfomed in 30 television shows, appeared onstage in numerous theatre plays and performed in more than 15 films, mostly in supporting roles.
His trajectory on the big screen started in 1968 with the film El proyecto and included pictures such as Los caballeros de la cama redonda, El poder de la censura, La clínica del Dr. Cureta, Seré cualquier cosa pero te quiero, and La rabona, among others. Otro corazón (2012) brought one of his rare leading role performances.
He was an active stage actor and appeared in plays such as Fin de diciembre, Negro, azul negro, Nada que ver, Don Juan, El barrio del ángel gris, Absurda persona singular, Peer Gynt and Fausto, touring Europe with the last two plays.
As a television actor, one of his last performances was on the popular Farsantes series where he played the father of Griselda Siciliani’s character. He had previously worked in La revista dislocada, Crecer con papá, Cebollitas, Gasoleros, Mujeres de nadie, Los simuladores and Don Juan y su bella ama.
Moreno had had a heart attack last September while directing the shooting of Esa mujer, with Andrea del Boca in the leading role.
