  • An actor nearly all his life, the endearingly handsome Gael García Bernal began performing in stage productions with his parents in Guadalajara, Mexico, and later studied at the Central School for Speech and Drama back home in London. Bernal then appeared in several plays, soap operas, and short films before his major feature film debut in Amores Perros, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 2000. He gained more attention for Alfonso Cuarón's Y Tu Mamá También, where he starred opposite his real-life close friend, Diego Luna. Appearing as Che Guevara in the TV miniseries Fidel, Bernal was cast to play the revolutionary leader again in the 2003 film The Motorcycle Diaries, and he again earned positive notices for his work. Bernal shored up his art-house cred playing a typically flamboyant leading role for Pedro Almodovar in Bad Education. In 2006 he teamed with Michel Gondry for his follow-up to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep. He joined up again with the director of Amoros Perros for the well-received drama Babel opposite Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.Bernal made his directorial debut with 2007's Deficit, and had a major part in the big screen adaptation of Blindness in 2008. That same year he executive produced the well-received Sin Nombre, and reteamed with old friend Diego Luna in the soccer drama Rudo y Cursi. In 2009 he worked with director Jim Jarmusch on The Limits of Control.He continued to work steadily, making a surprise change of pace in 2012 when re joined forces with Luna as well as Will Ferrell for the Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre.

QUOTES FROM Gael García Bernal CHARACTERS

René Saavedra
It seems to me that it's a Coca Cola commercial.
Ernesto Guevara de la Serna
How is it possible to feel nostalgia for a world I never knew?
Ernesto Guevara de la Serna
You gotta fight for every breath and tell death to go to hell.
Onza
Sonia, why are you sleeping with this dirty rancher?
Armando
Stay away, or I'll beat you with these hands!
Stephane Miroux
The brain is the most complex thing in the universe and it's right behind the nose.
Stephane Miroux
Would you marry me when we are seventy? You have nothing to lose.
Stephane Miroux
This girl is at once all the women that broke my heart. She is so beautiful and generous and she is asking me to leave because she is dumping me. She is dumping me because I am a cheap drug dealer. And I am a drug dealer because she wants to leave me.
Stephane Miroux
Tonight I'll show you how dreams are prepared... love, friendships, relationships. All those ships.
Stephane Miroux
Distraction is an obstruction to the construction.
Sophie
So no "Lake Garda" today?

Well, "Lake Garda"'s been there for five hundred thousand years.
