Although he studied medicine, Fernández Unsain chose literature as his career.
He was exiled to Mexico after the 1955 Revolución Libertadora, because of his cultural relationship with Eva Perón and The National Theatre or Comedy, Cervantes National Theatre (first director), and the Labour Worker Theatre of the General Confederation of Workers (CGT) (founder with others artists and directors).
In 1976, Fernández Unsain became the president of the newly formed SOGEM (Sociedad General de Escritores de Mexico), an organization which strives to guarantee the rights of authors. He held this post until his death in 1997.
Fernández Unsain is survived by his widow, actress Jacqueline Andere (he had previously been married to actress Olivia Michelle and to Argentine actress Zoe Ducós), and four children, including daughter Chantal Andere, an actress and singer.
