Spanish actor Juan Luis Galiardo, known for film roles as Don Quixote and in Charlton Heston's "Anthony and Cleopatra", has died aged 72, his publicists said Saturday.
"A quick and devastating illness has taken away one of the most popular and significant faces in our country's cinema, theatre and television," read a statement posted on his official website after his death late Friday.
Born in Andalucia, southern Spain in 1940, Galiardo began his five-decade film acting career in the early 1960s and came to international attention in pictures such as "Anthony and Cleopatra" directed by and starring Heston in 1971.
He later worked for several years in Mexico before returning to Spain and played his defining role as the comic knight Quixote in a film of the Spanish classic directed by Manuel Gutierrez Aragon in 2002.
His prolific stage career included leading roles such as King Lear, Oedipus and Moliere's "The Miser".
