Born in Spain, character player Andrés Gertrudix parlayed his unique and memorable presence into a series of roles in big-screen features, specializing in supporting roles in Spanish-language productions. Gertrudix's credits include the 2000 El Bola, the 2002 Piedras, and the 2006 Rough Winds. The actor poised himself for international crossover success with the production and release of the 2007 horror film The Orphanage -- a gothic chiller about a woman who reopens the orphanage where she spent her happy childhood but runs headfirst into evil spirits and long-repressed memories. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
