One of Spain's most in demand actors since his role as Vicente Aranda
, in La Mirada del Otro, where he played the hardened lover who lives life to the limit. Jose Coronado
has become known for his portrayal of men of action, rediscovered film legends, and classic seducers.
Fascinated by the atmosphere at court and driven on by his talent, the young Goya arrives in Madrid from his hometown of Zaragoza during the reign of Charles III.

His relationship with them causes him problems until the very day of his death in exile.
