RICARDO PALACIOS (1940-2015)
The Cantabrian actor Ricardo López Nuño died today, Wednesday the 11th from heart failure, following a month’s stay in hospital. Born to a well-to-do family, he was the son of a prison governor and he settled in Madrid during his student years, which is when he started studying acting and filmmaking. Thanks to his good presence, the tall, 285-pound actor was soon in demand in various supporting roles, particularly in westerns.
In the 1980’s Palacios found a second career as a writer-director, mainly for TV. Towards the end of the century, he retired due to health reasons.
