Theatre, television and film actor Alfredo Alcón died this morning due to a respiratory disease, his manager Alejandro Vanelli informed on Twitter. He was 84 years old.

Alcón passed away in his Barrio Norte residence after being hospitalized for 4 months at the Sanatorio de la Trinidad in Buenos Aires city. His wake started earlier today at 3pm in the “Pasos Perdidos” salon at the National Congress.

He has worked in more than 50 movies since his first one, "El amor nunca muere" (Love Never Dies), in 1955. His major works include "Un guapo del 900", "Cartas de amor de una monja", and "Hamlet" -1964, TV-, among others.
