The professional career of Luis Tosar has been drawn along more than two decades as an ascending curve that never seems to reach its ceiling, goes up and up and it is not yet known where it will stop. He started at a good pace, won high honors at an early age and today, at his current 48 years, he is still one of the most sought-after actors, rewarded and, above all, loved by the public of Spanish cinema. His aura is outlined by the thunder of applause.

It cannot be said that there was a breaking point from which Tosar's events precipitated, but that his professional development has been the result of constant work and an accumulation of successes - minimizing errors as much as possible -, always taking steps sure. Even so, it could be said that his professional life has been divided, in bulk, into two phases: the first is the one that covers the first decade of the century, when he was still a young actor who had debuted in that political satire entitled 'Atilano, president '(1998), and that after acting in films of directors with a hearth like Vicente Aranda, Icíar Bollaín, Jaime Chávarri or Álex de la Iglesia, he won two consecutive Goya awards in 2002 and 2003 as best supporting actor (' Los Monday in the sun ') and best leading actor (' I give you my eyes'), respectively.

His star was rising. He became the fashion actor, versatile, expressive, endowed with his image with a rough appeal, and the adventure continued both in Spain and abroad, participating with small roles in films by Michael Mann and Jim Jarmusch . And then 2010 came, a new decade opened before him, and with 'Cell 211' he returned to go up with the Goya to the best leading actor, so that he was an effective worker of the interpretation, a lucky stakhanovist but who had to sacrifice himself Day by day, he managed to climb another step in his ascension slowly but surely. His cache, it is said, rose from 200,000 to 250,000 euros per paper. From that moment, he consolidated himself as one of the most sought-after and best-paid actors in Spanish cinema - away from those who went to race in the United States, such as Bardem or Banderas, but near Javier Cámara -, and also a sought-after face for advertising.

In the same way that he has taken his career with professionalism, with constancy and without tone outings - his last important role has been that of the narco protagonist in 'Who Kills Iron' (2019), by Paco Plaza; by 2020 he has already announced two more films - the same can be said of his personal life: Tosar has never been noticed, nor has he hidden, but he has never placed matters of the heart in a preeminent place that would make him a habitual of the 'pink press'.

He is known for a hobby outside the cinema - he has a music group, Di Elas - and in terms of love, the most important have been two. The first, actress Marta Etura , whom she met in the filming of 'Thirteen Bells' (2002); They were a couple for nine years. His second great love is his current partner, the Chilean actress María Luisa Mayol, whom he met in 2013. This relationship is fully established, and they have two children in common: the eldest, León, was born in 2015, and this summer was born His sister, Luana. Wedding bells do not ring, but neither is necessary: ​​the union is strong and happiness shines on their faces.
