The life of

Quique San Francisco

, who died this Monday at the age of 65 due to bilateral bacterial pneumonia, has been as tragicomic as that of his roles in film and television.

Before he was born, his biological father abandoned his mother, the actress Queta Ariel, with whom he starred in the controversial film 'El pico' (1983) that dissected the gloomy underworld of drugs.

At that time, being a single mother was frowned upon and if you were an actress, why go into details.

Quique's childhood was spent in Barcelona, ​​where his mother signed him up to advertise and, incidentally, put a paw in the world of cinema, where he debuted at the tender age of six with 'Hombres y mujeres de blanco' (1962) .

('Anchor Button' or 'Pepito Piscinas'), who also managed to work with his offspring in 'Orquesta Club Virginia' (1992).

He is together with my mother is the person who has protected and cared the most for me, something that I will never be able to forget. "

Queta Ariel's disappointment and anger led him to civilly register his son with the surname of his new partner, hence Quique was known until the day of his death as San Francisco.

Although the relationship between the biological father and his son was good, Quique never wanted to carry his last name.

Both represented countless theatrical works in the well-known 'Estudio 1' of TVE.

Father and son even lived together in the same apartment where Vicente, who was a quite generous man, tried to help other colleagues who were in great need.

Among them,

Quique's bad life linked to heroin and cocaine,

his crazy parties in the middle of Madrid, the deceptions of a representative and his generosity ended up taking their toll.

Ruined and evicted, he sold his own flat in Madrid to settle in a little hotel on the outskirts of the city.

a fixed money that did not take long to melt
