The star started acting in TV series when he was just five years old and his first film role came in 1979. His role in Fabián Bielinsky's directorial debut Nine Queens (Nueve Reinas) began to earn him international recognition, which was further cemented with the likes of The Aura (El Aura) and Lucía Puenzo's XXY.
