Francisco León Barrios (was born 4 October 1974), known as Paco León is a Spanish actor, producer, and director. Born in Seville, his first television experiences were playing in the comedy "Mariquilla Ríe Perlas" and "Castillos en el Aire" on Canal Sur. He was a host of the variety TV show "Cita a Ciegas" and of the TV game show "Triunfa en Casa". He also played the role of Maria in the comedy "Moncloa, ¿Dígame?" on Telecinco. But his real trampoline to fame was the Antena 3 comedy sketch show Homo Zapping, in which he immediately stood out from among the cast. He has returned to Telecinco with the role of Luisma in Aída.

Personal life[edit]

León has a daughter with Anna Rodríguez.[1] León is openly bisexual.[1] León became the subject of media attention when he promised to Tweet a nude photo of himself after gaining one million Twitter followers, which he did in October 2013.[2]
