Born María del Pilar Bardem Muñoz to performers Rafael Bardem and Matilde Muñoz Sampedro in Seville, Bardem began her screen career in 1965. She was a regular in the television series Compuesta y sin novio (1994), Hermanas (1998), El Inquilino (2004), and Amar en tiempos revueltos (2005–2007).
Bardem is the recipient of the Goya Award for Best Supporting Actress, the Premios ACE for Best Supporting Actress, the Valladolid International Film Festival Award for Best Actress, and two Spanish Actors Union Awards for her performances.
Pilar Bardem is often called "La Bardem", and is well known in Spain not only as an actress, but for her outspoken political views. She has toiled for "labor rights for actors, civil rights for women", and "a more liberal Catholic Church" (she has affirmed a belief that women should be able to become priests). In 2003, she protested the support that (at that time) Spain's central government had for the War in Iraq and was ejected from the spectators' gallery in parliament. Bardem identifies her long struggle, working several jobs at once to raise her children, as not uncommon. She was just "one of so many".
