Lorenzo Robledo (1921 – September 2006 in Madrid) was a Spanish film actor, who made over 85 appearances in film between 1956 and 1982.[citation needed] He is a familiar face in Italian westerns, having appeared in a total of 32 Spaghetti Western films throughout the 1960s and early 1970s.[citation needed]

Robledo is probably best known in world cinema for his roles in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Western films of the 1960s and 1970s, portraying minor characters in the trilogy of films A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More, (1965) and the The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in 1966 and in Once Upon a Time in the West in 1968.[citation needed] He acted in many other westerns prolifically including the tortured sheriff in Four of the Apocalypse (1975).[citation needed]

His most notable role in Leone's films (where he is more recognizable) is in For a Few Dollars More when he plays the character of a cornered enemy of the main evil villain who tortures him and murders his family before killing him[citation needed].

Robledo died in 2006.[citation needed]
