Creator: Antonio Banderas

Want a real life example of a Dashing Hispanic? Antonio is your man. He began his acting career at age 19 with a series of films by director Pedro Almodóvar. He is well-known for playing Zorro in The Mask of Zorro and its sequel Legend Of Zorro, the first Spaniard to play the Spanish Californian hero.

Kids are more likely to remember him as Puss-In-Boots in Shrek (effectively Zorro as a cat) and Gregorio Cortez in Spy Kids.

He is notably less typecast in Spain, where he is considered a very versatile leading man (thanks to that stint under Almodovar).
