Argentine Film Star Federico Luppi Dies

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine actor Federico Luppi passed away on Friday at a medical center in Buenos Aires after failing to recover from a hematoma he suffered last April, official sources told EFE. He was 81.

Remembered for his roles in such films as “Time for Revenge” (1981), “The Devil’s Backbone” (2001) and “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006), Luppi was hospitalized at the Favaloro Foundation, and as his wife, Spanish actress Susana Hornos, told EFE on Thursday, he was going through “the ups and downs that are typical with these symptoms.”

Last April the actor slipped and fell, hitting his arm and head and leaving him with a hematoma that had to be drained.

Despite the complications, on Thursday the prognosis was that once he was released from hospital, Luppi, who in recent months has had permanent medical care at his home in the Argentine capital, would enter a rehabilitation center.

In one of his last interviews, the actor, born in 1935 in the Buenos Aires provincial town of Ramallo and who made his screen debut in 1965 in the Leonardo Fabio film “El Romance del Aniceto y la Francisca,” said that he was “disappointed, bitter, very sad and all alone.”

Winner of six Silver Condor Awards for Best Actor in Argentine Movies, a Silver Shell for Best Actor at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, and twice nominated for Goya Awards, Luppi did much of his acting in Spain, where he became a big box-office star.
