Biography

Actor Damián Alcázar premiered onscreen in the late '90s and spent much of his onscreen time in Mexican productions. Alcázar's early projects maintained a somewhat low profile critically and commercially, but by the early 2000s, the actor began building a fairly steady resumé of Spanish-language international crossover hits. He made his most significant impression with supporting roles in The Crime of Padre Amaro (2002) -- as a priest, Father Natalio -- and Crónicas (2004), as a Bible salesman who makes the mistake of his life by accidentally hitting a young boy in traffic and subsequently becomes entangled with an opportunistic tabloid reporter (John Leguizamo). In 2007, Alcázar signed to play Lord Sopespian in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008), the much-anticipated follow-up to the fantasy hit The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2006). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
