Fele Martínez (born Rafael Martínez, 22 February 1975) is a Goya Award-winning Spanish actor who visited us in 2016 to present the film ‘La noche que mi madre mató a mi padre‘ with its director Inés París.
His chance at stardom came at the hand of Alejandro Amenábar, who offered him a role in his opera prima ‘Tesis‘. It was for this work that Fele received the Goya Award for Best New Actor in 1996.
Among his films are the notable ‘Abre los ojos‘ (Amenábar, 1997), ‘Los amantes del círculo polar‘ (Julio Médem, 1998), ‘El arte de morir‘ (Álvaro Fernández Armero, 1999), ‘Capitanes de abril‘ (María de Medeiros, 1999), ‘Tuno negro‘ (Pedro L. Barbero y Vicente J. Martín, 2000), and ‘La mala educación‘ (Pedro Almodóvar, 2004).
He has also participated in several independent film projects including the short films ‘Pasaia‘ (1996), for which he won Best Actor at the Elche Film Festival, ‘Amigos‘ (1997), ‘La cartera‘ (2000), and ‘El castigo del ángel‘ (2002) which he also directed.
