In 2011, doctors found a cancerous tumor in Alvaro’s leg. When he spoke about his diagnosis, he said, “At first I thought I was going to die, that my leg was cut but nothing happened.

Have I been faithful to my principles?” Fortunately, the treatment he underwent was successful and he is not cancer free.

2. He Has Twins

Alvaro Morte is a dedicated family man. He and his wife, Blanca Clemente, are the proud parents of twin girls. If there’s one downside to Alvaro’s busy work schedule, it’s that he doesn’t get to spend as much time with his family as he’d like.

3. He Owns A Theater Company

On top of his work as an actor, Alvaro is also a business man. He and Blanca own a theater company in Spain called 300 Pistolas which they founded in 2012. Hopefully the location will provide opportunities for artists to display their skills.

4. He Studied Engineering

Many successful actors have always felt the calling to entertain others, but Alvaro Morte isn’t part of that crew. Becoming an actor wasn’t Alvaro’s plan A. Before pursuing a career in acting, he was in school studying to become an enginner.

5. He Was A Professor In Real Life

He told The Hindu, “On a professional level, it has changed many things. I have many projects on the table right now thanks to the show. I feel really grateful. But on a personal level, it has been difficult as I feel I have lost my anonymity. We are observed all the time. I try to protect my family as much as possible from it.”

8. He Likes To Analyze His Characters

Most actors like to study the characters they play, but Alvaro takes things a step further. He likes to analyze them.

9. If He Had The Cash From Money Heist He’d Use It For A Good Cause

10. He Loves Living In Spain

When lots of people find success, the first thing they want to do is move far away from home. That’s not how Alvaro decided to do things, though. He was born and raised in Spain and still lives there today with his family.
