Biography

Hardworking Mexican actor Armando Silvestre played supporting roles in over 200 films and series in an enduring career of over 60 years. Born Armando Silvestre Carrascosa, he worked as a salesman in his father's perfume shop before studying acting under Seki Sano at the Andres Soler Institute as well as learning English through further classes in the United States. He had his big screen debut in the 1947 Mexican feature "La casa colorada," and, a few years later, began landing parts in American films, frequently playing Spaniards, Mexicans, and Native Americans. Though many of his roles were in smaller Mexican films, he shared screen time with major stars including Yul Brynner in the Mayan epic "Kings of the Sun," Burt Lancaster in the Western revenge tale, "The Scalphunters," and Anthony Quinn in the family drama "The Children of Sanchez." On the small screen, he found spots on such popular series as the frontier adventure saga, "Daniel Boone," the crime drama "Mannix," and the superhero serial "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman." Since the late '70s, Silvestre has appeared mainly in Mexican action and adventure films, with the occasional American-Mexican coproduction, such as the 1992 biker gang flick "The Last Riders," starring Erik Estrada of "CHiPs" fame.
