Álvaro Cervantes is one of Spain's rising stars. His television debut was nine years ago on "Abuela de verano" (2005), directed by Joaquim Oristrell. He combined his acting jobs with his baccalaureate studies. Later on, he started studying "Comunicación Audiovisual" (Media Studies), but he decided to take a break and fully pursue his acting career.
His first important role arrived after starring in a few short films when Silvia Munt chose him to star in her film "Pretextos" (2008). However, the film that catapulted him to stardom was "El juego del ahorcado" (2008) for which he was nominated for Best New Actor in the 2009 Goya Awards. Since then, Álvaro has been very busy: he's starred in successful films like "El sexo de los ángeles" (2012), for which he won the Best Supporting actor in the 2012 edition of the Málaga Film Festival. Other films he has worked on include "Hanna" (2011), which stars Saorise Ronan and Cate Blanchett, "Tres metros sobre el cielo" ("Three steps above heaven", 2010) and "Tengo ganas de ti" (2012), these last two are based on the best-sellers by Federico Moccia.
When it comes to television, he has starred in "Luna, el misterio de Calenda" (2012), broadcasted by Antena 3 and guest starred in shows like "Ermessenda" (2011) or "Punta Escarlata" (2011).
We've seen Alvaro in one of the main roles of "El corazón del océano", a series based on the novel by Elvira Menéndez, released in Antena 3 on January 27, 2014. His latest aired project is a tv series called "Hermanos" (2014), where he plays the main role.
