Actress Silvia Tortosa dies at 77

The actress Silvia Tortosa died this Saturday in Barcelona at the age of 77 after "a tough fight against cancer, which she carried out with the utmost discretion," according to her representation agency in a statement.

"We want to convey her gratitude and affection to all her friends, loved ones, admirers and media, who always loved and supported Silvia during her 60 years of profession," the agency added in the letter.

Tortosa, born in Barcelona on March 8, 1947, had "a long professional career in film, theater and television," recalled the Union of Actors and Actresses on the social network "condolences" for the death.

The funeral chapel will take place this coming Monday, March 25, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in Room 6 of the Les Corts Mortuary (Barcelona). Next, her burial will be held, scheduled for 1:30 p.m., in the Montjuic cemetery, next to her parents "just as she wished," the representation agency has stressed.

The performer, who underwent surgery for breast cancer in 2019, made her theater debut at the age of 15 and at 19 she made the leap to the big screen with the help of director Pedro Balañá in the film 'The Last Saturday'.

Likewise, he was a well-known face during the Transition for his appearance between 1976 and 1978 in the television series 'Curro Jiménez', which was followed by others in the program 'Aplauso' (1978-1983) and series such as 'The Trace of Crime'. (1985-2010), 'Pharmacy on duty' (1991-1995) and 'Hostal Royal Manzanares' (1996-1998). More recently, he had a special appearance in series such as 'Arde Madrid' (2018), created by Paco León and Anna R. Costa.

All in all, Tortosa was especially lavish throughout his film career, which included almost three dozen works, some such as 'Panic on the Trans-Siberian' (1972), directed by Eugenio Martín and in which he shared a cast with actors such as British Christopher Lee, who died in 2015.

In 2007 he published his memoirs with the title 'My Hidden Life'.
