Spanish Theater Actor and Director Pepe Rubianes Passes Away

BARCELONA – Theater actor and director Pepe Rubianes has died from lung cancer in the northeastern Spanish city of Barcelona, his production company said. He was 61.

The entertainer, who was born in the northwestern Spanish region of Galicia in 1947, was known for his irony-filled monologues and controversial statements.

Rubianes died Sunday morning at his home in Barcelona, where he lived most of his life and launched his stage career.

Last April, Rubianes said he was leaving the production of “La Sonrisa Etiope,” a play in which he was starring, to be treated for lung cancer.

Rubianes made his professional debut with the Dagoll Dagom theater group and later joined the Els Joglars group.

In 1982, he launched his solo career, achieving great success on the stage with “Rubianes, solamente” (Rubianes, Only) in 1997.

He also had parts in Pedro Costa’s 1996 film “El crimen de Oriente” and in Ventura Pons’s 1994 film “El porque de las cosas.” EFE
