Everything you need to know about Rodolfo Beban
Rodolfo Beban, the son of famed actor Miguel Beban, was born on May 25, 1938. Despite this, Beban grew up in a household where no one was permitted to pursue a profession in acting. This was largely due to his mother’s admission that theater had wrecked her marriage. As a consequence, Beban made the decision to become an aviation pilot. However, when driving by the Moron Municipal Theater with a friend one day, he saw a banner that stated, “Extras required for Fuenteovejuna.” He started out as an extra before being cast as the lead in a play called Musica en la noche. Following that, he began taking theatrical courses.
He finally rose to prominence as a result of his many theatrical performances. He played the lead in many shows, including The Strange Couple, Let’s Live a Dream, The Butterflies Are Free, and Diario de un Loco, which was directed by his father. Rodolfo subsequently moved on to television, where he acted in telenovelas such as El amor tu cara de mujer, Malevo, and Four Men for Eva.

Despite his celebrity, Beban claims that fame has taken away several of his hobbies, like attending to milongas and competing in fencing events. Beban also acted in a number of films, the most notable of which being Juan Moreira, directed by Leonardo Favio. The picture has the distinction of being one of the biggest grossing films in Argentina. The process to Infamy, Los Orilleros, The Invitation, Personal Security, and other works are among his most popular.
