Mario Almada Otero (born January 7, 1922) is a Mexican actor with a career lasting over seven decades.[1] He has appeared in over 300 films. He is most known for his roles in urban westerns and action pictures. He is the brother of actor Fernando Almada.

Biography[edit]

Shortly after his birth in Huatabampo, Sonora, his parents moved to Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, and later to Mexico City. Almada came from a family with close ties to the entertainment industry. His first job was at a night club owned by his father called Cabaret Señorial. By then, his brother Fernando had already started his career as an actor, which inspired Mario to start producing and directing his own films. He wrote his first movie script in 1963. His prolific film career has earned him the distinction of being the living actor who has appeared in the most movies, according to Guinness World Records.

For his contributions to the motion picture industry, Almada has been inducted into the Paseo de las Luminarias in Mexico City.

Neither man hit his box-office stride until his fifties, and both made the same gleeful-vengeance film again and again ..."
