Ángel Pérez Aranda was born on September 18, 1938 in Jaén, Andalucía, Spain. Aranda originally studied to be an architect but was bitten by the acting bug when Italy and Hollywood started filming in the nearby towns and deserts. Between 1955 and 1980 he appeared in nearly 50 films and was seen in eight Euro-westerns between 1964’s “Bullets Don’t Argue” and “Dallas” in 1974. During his television career he wrote some of the teleplays for episodes of the series he would appear in. After appearing as Carlos Medina in the Spanish TV series ‘Estudio1’ in 1980 he left the business.
Aranda died in Spain on July 4, 2000.
Today we remember Ángel Aranda on what would have been his 80th birthday.
