Narciso Ibáñez Serrador (born July 4, 1935 in Montevideo, Uruguay), also known as Chicho Ibáñez Serrador or Luis Peñafiel is a film, television and theater director, actor and screenwriter.[1]

He is the son of actors Narciso Ibáñez Menta and Pepita Serrador.


He was born in 1935 in Montevideo and from an early age was influenced by the world of acting: his father was the Spanish theater director Narciso Ibáñez Menta, while his mother was Argentinan actress Pepita Serrador. He spent his childhood in Latin America accompanying their parents during their tour performances.[2]

In 1947 he moved to Spain, where he attended high school in the city of Salamanca. He began to work with a theater company and made his theater director debut with The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams.[3]

In 1963 he began to work in Spanish television and later transitioned to feature films and directed such films as The House That Screamed[4] and Who Can Kill a Child?. The two works that gave him fame in Spain were on television, they were the game show Un, dos, tres... responda otra vez and the horror series Historias para no dormir.
