Ricardo Darín was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on January 26, 1957. He has worked since he was a little boy, and over the years has made a remarkable evolution from soap opera heartthrob and TV comedies to a leading figure of the most important Argentine movies. At the age of 10 he made his debut in a play along with his parents, actor Ricardo Darín Sr., and actress Renée Roxana. He acted for several years in TV series such as Alta Comedia and Estación Retiro, where he reached popularity as a young leading actor in different soap operas, specially in Alberto Migre's productions. In the '90s, he achieved great success in the TV comedy Mi Cuñado (1993), in which he co-starred with Luis Brandoni. He never left theatre and continued acting in plays like Sugar, Extraña Pareja, Taxi, Algo en Común and Art. At that time, he acted in plays and movies like He nacido en la ribera, La Rabona and Los Exitos del Amor. The first time the critics emphasized his performance was in the movie Perdido por Perdido (1993), Alberto Lecchi's debut as a film director.
