Bonus Trivia

.

Until a broken foot at the age of 14 ended that dream, Banderas planned to become a professional soccer player.

.

Banderas was led away by police at age 14 after he and members of a theater group had performed the forbidden work of Bertolt Brecht. He told The Los Angeles Times Robert W. Welkos on July 12, 1998: "I remember seeing the shine of the helmets of the cops in the wings of the theater just waiting for us. I remember just getting out after the applause and putting my hands like that (straightening his arms out in front of him) and being handcuffed."
