As a kid, Antonio Banderas wanted to become a professional football (soccer) player until he had a broken one of his foot when he was 15 years old. He went on to join in some drama classes, eventually joining a theater troupe that toured all over Spain. His work in the theater, and his performances on the streets, eventually landed him a spot with the National Theatre of Spain.
Antonio's first film apperance was in Pestañas postizas, a 1982 spanish film, but did not start acting in American films until 1991. Popularity came to Banderas since his apperence in Philadelphia (1993).
