Alfredo Landa Areitio was born in Pamplona, Navarra, Spain.
Dictator Francisco Franco died in 1975 and, after that, censorship began to disappear. This caused a growth of sexual comedies on Spanish cinema. Landa became the "sexual repressed" of that trend, especially under directors Mariano Ozores and Pedro Lazaga. He even created his own trend, that some people call landismo.
Afterwards, with the stabilization of Spanish cinema, Landa changed his image, taking much deeper roles, like his bandit in El Bosque Animado. A dramatic actor, he is now widely recognized.
