Arturo Puig (born 17 November 1944) is an Argentine theatre, television and motion picture actor. He has worked in the 1990s success Grande, pá!, and he currently works in Solamente Vos.

Biography[edit]

Arturo Puig became famous as the lead actor of 1970s telenovelas, such as "Me llaman gorrión" (1972) and "Pablo en nuestra piel" (1977).[1]

He was the lead actor of Grande, pá!, a big success in Argentine television during the 1990s.[2] The TV channel Telefe proposed him to make a remake, but he refused, as the channel did not want to hire the full cast of the original series as Puig proposed.[2]

In the 2000s he has worked sporadically in TV, becoming instead a notable theater actor. He worked in plays such as "El Precio", "Cristales rotos" and "Panorama desde el puente", by Arthur Miller, "¿Quién le teme a Virginia Woolf?" by Edward Albee, and "La vuelta al hogar" by Harold Pinter.[3] In "Rompiendo códigos" he played the British mathematician Alan Turing.[4]

As of 2013, he plays the gay parent of the main character of the Solamente Vos comedy telenovela. He mentioned that he is satisfied that modern television does not use self-censorship on such topics anymore.[1] This is not the first time that Puig played a gay character: besides the play on Alan Turing, he had played another one in Botines, but not under a comedic tone.[4] He also worked in the successful film Tesis sobre un homicidio.[1] Thanks to Gustavo Yankelevich, he worked as a theater director for the first time, in the play Le Prénom, with actors Germán Palacios, Jorgelina Aruzzi, Mercedes Funes, Carlos Belloso and Peto Menahem.[2]
