Después de 21 días de disciplinado confinamiento, puedo decir que he superado la infección por Covid 19. Estoy curado.

When he made his diagnosis public, the Pain and Glory star had said he will utilise his time in isolation “to read, write, rest and continue making plans to begin to give meaning to my 60 years, to which I arrive full of enthusiasm”.
Earlier this year, Banderas received his first-ever Academy Award nomination in the lead actor category for playing the role of a film director pondering his creative decline in Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar’s Pain and Glory.
Banderas’ credits include movies such as The Mask of Zorro, Once Upon a Time in Mexico and The Skin I Live In.
He will next be seen in films like The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, Uncharted and Official Competition.
